My DD had her 18-month checkup last night and everything was excellent except for the doctor heard a slight heart murmur. Since she's been nursing mostly at nap and sleep times lately, I've been allowing myself 1 Red Bull per day (I know I know...) for the past month or so. I stayed clear of caffeine all through my pregnancy and up to this past month or two. I'm wondering if my caffeine intake (Red Bull has less caffeine than one cup of regular coffee) has gone through my breast milk to effect her? That's the only thing that's changed from all her perfect checkups prior.
I asked the pediatrician and he said that that wouldn't effect her, but I'm still not convinced b/c I had read that caffeine did go directly into the milk.
I would appreciate any advice you can give and I even welcome criticism at this point!
Trying to edit to correct spelling in subject. s/b murmur... oh well.
