Hi all! I have posted once or twice in here, but I thought I was introduce myself. I am Natalie. Mom to Dacia (4 who b/f for 4 mths) and Ethan (3 1/2 wks who has b/f since birth).

Anyway, I know coffee sometimes gives babies gas and besides let's face it caffeine isn't great for b/f...right? (At least that's what everyone keeps lecturing me about! ) So I decided to give decaf a try. Is it also known to cause gas or is that just regular coffee b/c of the caffeine? TIA!

Hope to get to know all of you a little better!

Thanks Natasha for my amazing siggy!

Depends on the baby. I drink pretty much what ever I feel like. Yesterday I had 2 cups of coffee, then a mc donalds iced coffee, then we went out to eat and I had a mt dew with supper, and had no problems at all. Some babys are sensative. I'd say decaf coffee is fine if caffeine is a problem for you.

I think it's the caffiene that can cause your baby to act fussier than usual. It does all depend on the baby though. If he seems to have a problem with it, then it's better to cut back. If he doesn't have a reaction though, don't feel bad about indulging in a cup or two a day. My DD never seemed to have problems with caffiene, but newborns are just gassy and fussy to start with, so it can be hard to pinpoint if there's a problem.

I also don't really watch my caffeine intake. I do have one personal rule about it though, I always make myself drink a whole bottle of water before having a caffeinated drink. I have had kidney stones, so water is very important to me - especially while nursing! I do always have decaf coffee. I have never noticed my baby be effected by the caffeine.
