When you think about giving your baby caffeine, it seems like a no brainer to avoid that for as long as possible. I mean, who would give a baby a sip of coffee? But, the truth is that caffeine can be found in many foods and drinks that are totally unsuspecting. Foods like chocolate, tea, and soda all have caffeine at some level. Like most parents know, caffeine can alter your sleep patterns causing you to feel more awake and alert. That same effect can happen to your little baby. Giving your baby foods like chocolate can have them awake all night long and have you up all night long, frustrated. Drinks like iced tea are another sneaky caffeine culprit and should be avoided while your baby is young. Stick to formula or breast milk and avoid treats like chocolate until your baby is at least a year old.
