I read that caffeine levels peak 1-2 hours after drinking your coffee. I usually have one sachet a day, drink it right after pumping, and only start my next pumping session at least 3 hours later.

Caffeine levels in breast milk peak 1–2 hours after drinking coffee. So best to wait at least 3hr after.

Yes .. I heard coffee improves breast milk supply .. twice a day as I had drink coffee nly after delivery

Hi, I think a gap of 2-3 hours after drinking coffee should be fine

I didn’t stop myself from eating most food, coffee included.

Just wait for 2hrs before you want to breastfeed again
