Is it good to drink green tea when breastfeeding?

Hi Subha. Yes one can drink green tea while breast feeding.

thx for your reply Priya

Yes but remember that it has caffeine so no more than one or two cups a day as it can interfere with your iron absorption and thus reducing the iron in breast milk.
