Quoting OmegaDucks!:" Try to cut down slowly. I cut myself off cold turkey with my last pregnancy and actually shocked myself. I got head aches and dealt with a really down feeling as I adjusted to being off caffeine."
Quoting Julie&Collin:" I cut back big time, I have 1 pepsi on fridays and thats it not other caffiene for the week, I've been cutting back for about a month"

Quoting Dicey Wifey:" Wow! One pepsi a week! You're a hero If I remember correctly, you can have 1-2 cups of coffee/caffeinated ... [snip!] ... that. I can't remember if caffeine is safe while nursing. I drank it while nursing and I don't think it affected DS at all. "lol It was a huge struggle at first I was grouchy and had headaches but its getting easier, I look at it as my treat for the week, I have heart palpitations and was advised to cut out caffiene completely but I can't do that lol
Quoting Mrs.O♥:" I had a bad coca cola addiction. Once I cut back, the craving deminished, well at least it did for me ... [snip!] ... it did for me I have it once in a while but not as much as I use to. It was bad! The withdrawal headaches sucked though!"
Quoting Julie&Collin:" Oh and my mom just told me she got us a Kurig for Christmas...I am in trouble"
