I can’t get over how much I love the Offbeat Empire. When I got married last September, it was the Offbeat Bride site that nearly exclusively got us through our wedding. We were even featured in a Monday Montage (second photo down). Now that we are expecting a little bambino, I’ve been checking in from time to time on Offbeat Mama.
After months of “don’t eat this; don’t eat that; you’re not eating enough; soft cheeses are bad for you; should you be switching to decaf?” paired with the glaring looks from people whenever I say out loud that I would kill a man for a Margarita, FINALLY some good news. If you are a Breastfeeding Mom, it turns out that caffeine won’t keep your baby awake. In fact,
It’s not clear why the infants’ sleep wasn’t affected. The babies might have developed a tolerance to caffeine while in the womb, Rodrigues says. But other studies have found no caffeine metabolites in the urine of babies whose mothers drink coffee, suggesting that the babies don’t absorb caffeine the way older children and adults do. The results were published in the journal Pediatrics.
I’m so awesomely stoked about this information – until a new study is published next year that says the exact opposite.
Now, about that Margarita study….
