I may have the most caffeine sensitive baby ever. Not that I can complain, he is incredibly easy with everything else.
OK, maybe I would like to complain a little.
I really like coffee and black non herbal tea, with milk and sugar, so good.....
And I just went 9 months without coffee, strengthening my tea addiction.
Now I can not have anything stronger then the odd cup of hot chocolate.
Here is how it started:
When Leo was 4 days old, Lizzy brought over pizza and Coke. It was great, I drank almost a liter of Coke. Then around midnight the baby was mysteriously awake, very awake, and very cranky.
I suspected the coke might be to blame. Fair enough, I do not need Coke.
Then last Friday, Lizzy was over again and I drank three cups of tea in a row. TEA! Hour later, same thing. Very very awake baby, in a bad mood.
I will not even try the coffee.
It really is not as though I need the caffeine, but I like having something hot to drink. After all, I do live in ICELAND. Sometimes you need something warm...
I would even drink decafe tea (not herbal, most of the fruity stuff creeps me out) or coffee, but I just have not seen it around. I would beg for some to be sent from Canada but it takes 4 months.
I guess I just have to look harder. Maybe some natural food stores....
