  • Can you drink soft drinks while breastfeeding?

    As with alcohol, it's best to limit the amount of caffeine you consume while breastfeeding. One or two cups of coffee a day are fine, but more than one or two servings of caffeine per day may affect your baby's mood and/or sleep.
  • Can nicotine affect breast milk?

    The risks increase if you smoke more than 20 cigarettes per day. Don't smoke immediately before or during breastfeeding. It will inhibit let-down and is dangerous to your baby. Smoke immediately after breastfeeding to cut down on the amount of nicotine in your milk during nursing.
