    Just to let you k now the amount of caffeine in a chocolate bar is nearly neligible. A 3 1/2 ounce chocolate bar contains approximately 12 mg of caffeine. A cup of coffee contains nearly 150 mg.

    The real stimulant in chocolate is theobromine. It is a mild, lasting stimulant with a mood improving effect, whereas caffeine has a strong, immediate effect and increases stress.

    Anyway... like almost all things breastfeeding... moderation and monitoring of your LO is key. If your baby is fussy and wildly alert after you've slammed down a big cup of joe and a hershey's bar, then lay off 'em. But if you're torn between the two, go for a chocolate bar not a cup of coffee, it has far less caffeine and will likely keep you amped up longer!!
