Dacaf Coffee How Much Is OK

I was typically not a big coffee drinker pre-pregnancy. But lately have been swinging by our local starbucks to get a cup of decaf coffee. I have been able to limit myself to just one 'tall' a day, but do drink decaf tea at home sometimes. How much of this is OK to drink or is it better not to drink any?

I don't think there's any possible way to get enough caffeine from decaf tea and coffee that you would go over the "limit." Tea and coffee are both packed with antioxidants, so you're probably doing some good. Ask your doctor if you're still concerned.

I was told at an espresso shop that one shot of decaf has 30% the amount of regular espresso. I've read on the back of folgers that thier decaf is 99.7 % caffeine free. I drink a 12 oz 1 shot decaf a day. I do it for the milk, and was told it was okay... Plus I drink decaff foldgers at home. I think you'd have to drink it continually to get an overload.
