Fiction: You Must Give Up Caffeine During Pregnancy

The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists say moderate caffeine consumption (about 200 mg per day) appears to be safe and won't harm the fetus. Breastfeeding moms should have no more than about three cups of coffee, tea or caffeinated soda throughout the day, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. Regular coffee has about 60 to 150 mg per cup; tea has 40 to 80 mg; and chocolate contains anywhere from 1 to 35 mg per one ounce. The amount in sodas varies widely from 35 mg to 64 mg per 12 ounces. Breast milk typically contains less than 1 percent of the caffeine ingested by the mom, but if your baby seems fussy when you drink it, cut back to see if she's less agitated.
