I’m not expecting, but I like to have things planned out and look into options.
I absolutely LOVE coffee, and I will usually drink 2 cups of coffee, black, each morning. Research shows coffee is not good for babies development, some articles suggest 8oz a day is ok… but my fiance doesnt like the idea of me drinking coffee at all during pregnancy. Which I’m fine with, and I ultimately agree with as well.
[name_f]My[/name_f] question is, to any coffee drinking moms out there, what alternatives did you use as a morning drink? I very much dislike tea, so that isnt an option unfortunately.
[name_m]How[/name_m] did you guys wean off of coffee? When did you start drinking coffee again, or did you stop all together while breastfeeding?
I have tried Dandy Blend, which is very yummy and tastes like coffee when you add more to the mug. But I’ve read that Chicory Roots may lead to problems during pregnancy. Dandy Blend suggests there is only a small amount of Chicory in their product and is safe to drink during pregnancy… I’m just wondering if anyone has experience with this drink while pregnant?
I really appreciate any feed back! I know everyone is different, some will drink coffee, some wont… I’m just trying to find the best option for me!
