If you simply have to have a morning cup of joe, rest assured that small amounts of caffeine are safe (one to two cups of regular coffee a day) for breastfeeding mothers and their babies. And there’s no evidence to show that caffeine decreases a mother's milk supply.
But be careful of overdoing the caffeine. Large amounts (more than two caffeine-containing drinks a day) can make your baby fussy and wakeful. And we’re guessing that’s not something you want to risk!
