I just want to start off by saying how happy I am that I am breastfeeding. I tried so hard with dd#1 and had to stop. First, can I have any caffefine while BF? And second it seems that whatever I eat makes my baby gassy, any suggestions??

Yes you can have caffeine, I do everyday In moderation of course.

What makes my baby gassy is onions.

Broccoli makes Lawson SUPER GASSY and so does milk. If you drink milk or eat a lot of cheese you could try cutting that out. Onions is a big gas causer as well.

HTH and WTG for breastfeeding

You can have caffiene, just in moderation at first. Some babies seem to be more sensitive to it so you have to gauge your own baby's reaction.

Don't worry about the gas, babies that young tend to be gassy in general because thier digestive systems still need to mature. It's not that what you are eating is causing the gas, it's something that would likely happen anyway. Another cause of it could be eating too fast (common if you have an overactive letdown) or not being burped enough.

Congrats on breast feeding!!! Those first weeks are the hardest, you're doing great!
I have always had a cup of coffee in the morning. I sometimes have a can of soda in the afternoon, but I try and opt for caffeine free. And I agree, most young babies are just gassy in general.

Thanks ladies, now I don't feel so bad about the cup of coffee or 2 in the morning. She's now always gassy but some days it's horrible. Glad to hear that it's pretty normal though. I guess I'll just continue with what I've been doing then.
