I am in the US - I remember that one of my friends who recently had a baby was told one (Starbucks sized) coffee a day.

In the US, 200mg is generally the cut off. And you have to remember that most sodas, teas and some foods also have caffeine.
I tend to crave coffee while pregnant (which is crazy) so I've switched to decaf coffee and teas.
I've also heard that caffeine can increase breast pain. And since mine is extensive, I like to stay under 100mg or less caffeine intake, and I've added a Vitamin E capsule. but nothing is helping.Mom to Weston Christopher, b. 2008

I've also read that if you want to be super careful, you should make sure that any decaf coffee you're drinking is 'water method' decaf. Otherwise they decaffeinate the coffee using chemicals that are also, like caffeine, associated with slight risks of miscarriage.

Just be smart - Have your coffee in the morning, don't go more than 2 Venti size drinks, and don't have any caffeine in the afternoons at all if you can help it, since sleep during pregnancy is already so restless.Azula Rosemary 1 July 2012

As a student midwife we advise no more than one to two cups of tea/coffee/cola a day. However, it is just advise and unless you are drinking a lot of caffeine the evidence suggests there is minimal to no effect on the developing fetus. If you are consuming lots, lots being ten or so cups a day, your baby may suffer withdrawal after birth so it would be wise to cut down if that's the case.Name lover
