My baby loves coffee
That being said, I'd be worried about caffeine, because it takes a LOT longer for caffeine to flush out of a baby's system than it does out of an adult's.
Averlee, I would be more worried about potential dairy sensitivity than the tiny bit of caffiene that decaf contains.
And I am really surprised about the wasabi too! Lol maybe in a few months DS will be eating sushi like his parents...the spicier the better. That would be funny.
I know this is an old thread but my baby loves coffee too! I don't let him sit there and drink it or anything.... It started as me just giving him a taste because he seemed curious one day when I was having a cup and he loved it so much he wants some every time I have some. I'm glad to know that other moms have let their babies taste coffee because I felt bad at first! lol. But he's getting a bit from the boobs anyway, and I drank it some when I was pregnant. So I give him a sip or two if I'm drinking it and he wants some. Sometimes he doesn't even ask for any.
My DD is curious about coffee, probably b/c we drink it so much. She was born 3 month early and they gave her 7mg/kg/day of caffeine- which, by weight, was more caffeine than the 2 mugs of coffee I drink each day. And she still slept all the time. Some people are really sensitive to it, and I guess here in our family we are not.
