lol!  this is the perfect way to describe my mom's coffee making style.  it'll definitely knock your socks off!

 

funny this thread was resurrected, I just had a cup of coffee this morning since I made some for DH.  I know the heartburn is going to kick in soon (i'm going to search for my papaya enzymes as soon as I hit "submit" lol) but it was such a treat!  I know it's not the healthiest thing in the world but I can't wait til after the birth & I can kick back my coffee daily again. caffix.gif

I am allowing myself occasional coffee (almost daily this week cause it's free at McDonald's, LOL!) - I get a 10 oz cup (I had to look that up, I am surprised it's 10 oz, I would have guessed 8) or sometimes I will get the next size up and order half-caf.  It doesn't seem to be bothering my tummy, which is bizarre (this pregnancy is  weird that way, my tummy is more forgiving, woohoo!). 

 

I am kind of hoping that incorporating it back in a little now might make it more do-able when I'm nursing...?  Probably that is grasping at straws but at least if I'm wrong, I can enjoy it for a few weeks before I have to give it up again :P  With DS1, I could have a cup no problem, but DS2 was terribly sensitive to it...I'm not sure if it was the caffeine or something in the coffee, cause he screamed even if I had decaf.  Blech.

blush.gif coffee can be an issue while nursing?  this is my first time hearing about this.  oh my... well at least I can start mentally coping NOW in case my LO doesn't tolerate it.  oddly enough I'd have NO problem doing elim diets, as I easily went vegan for a year, but the threat of taking away my coffee?? that's going to take adjusting to! shake.gif

I think it's absolutely fine for most people.  DS2 was pretty unhappy for the first 6 months of his life (as I clung to the "food sensitivities in nursing babies are rare so it can't be that" thing) - until I gave up dairy, chocolate and coffee.  I still indulged in them from time to time, but with consequences (i.e. he fussed to sleep and slept poorly that night and the day after).  At one point I had gone a LONG time without chocolate and a friend was giving out samples of that heart-healthy chocolate.  I kid you not, tears came to my eyes when I tasted it, I had missed it that much.  It was really embarrassing.  LOL!
 

Edited to add:  Some info - as it says, it's not super common.  And my son displayed other symptoms besides being fussy - eczema, nasty poops, gas...some of which resolved (eczema) and others that just improved (I imagine he probably has other sensitivities but I wasn't strict about eliminating anything else, other than reducing egg and soy intake).

Wow, I have been limiting my intake to one soda/coffee a week and feeling so guilty if I have more than that.  Well according to that chart I can have a soda a day and be just fine.  No more guilt for me!

i dunno, according to my chart (i.e. my own calculations) if you can have one cup of coffee a day @ 200 mg caffeine, then you can have 4 sodas/day (yes....i do drink 4 diet cokes a day....hey, that's cutting back!)

we nursed just fine that way too.
