Coffee and pregnancy
Most doctors recommend limiting caffeine during pregnancy to 300mg per dag. The table below gives a guide to caffeine levels in popular drinks.
Coffee and breastfeeding
The occasional caffeinated beverage is not harmful to the baby, because only a very small part goes ito the milk. 1 or 2 cups of coffee a day is a safe limit. If you take more than 750 mg of caffeine a day, the amount of caffeine in the baby's body will accumulate, especially in newborn babies. It costs a baby about 2 to 5 days to excrete half of the caffeine. If the baby is 3 months old, he can do this in 14 hours.
