Win a Nespresso Inissia Bundle which include a Aeroccino Plus milk frother to the mom that loves coffee. Is it safe to have caffeine while I’m breastfeeding? Yes, but don’t overdo it. When caffeine enters your bloodstream, a small amount of it (usually less than 1 percent) ends up in your breast milk. The amount in your milk peaks a couple of hours after you consume it. Since your newborn’s body can’t easily break down and get rid of caffeine, it may accumulate in his system.
