Caffeine and My Toddler

I learned a very valuable lesson last night.

I drank a large Mountain Dew Baja Blast yesterday evening. It’s something I have now maybe twice a year, and I thoroughly enjoyed having one yesterday. I also learned a very valuable lesson: a large size of anything loaded with caffeine is probably a bad idea when you’re breastfeeding. Well after midnight, she was awake, kicking her father and I while she desperately avoided sleep, in spite of the fact that she was exhausted after the day’s events. It didn’t occur to us until sometime after 2am the reason why she was so wound up.

It was a total parenting fail on my part.

She’s napping now. If I weren’t busy, I’d be tempted to join her. I certainly deserve a nap after the night I had.
