    Most breastfeeding mothers can drink caffeine in moderation.
    I love my cup of coffee in the morning.
    Here is a great link about breastfeeding and caffeine from kellymom..

    I try to steer clear of caffine all together, because I know if I have just a little I'm going to want more. A serving or two a day is okay, I just wouldn't exceed that. There are lots of great decaffinated teas out there, and I keep a 12 pack of my favorite decaffinated soda for whenever I get that craving.

    I have a cup of half caff every morning and drink decaf tea. I will occasionally have a cup of hot chocolate in the afternoon.

    I love caffeine! I drink coffee every morning, but that's pretty much it. Other than that it's pretty much water, though sometimes I give in to my urge for a soda (but that's pretty rare). When my son was smaller and nursing more often, I was more careful about it than I am now.

    I also drink a TON of plain seltzer water - love the fizz! I do sometimes get flavored, unsweetened seltzer.
