Yes: A breastfeeding mom (with no past caffeine problems) may enjoy some caffeinated drinks after her baby is 2-3 months. During the first 2-3 months, a mom may be napping between baby feedings, so should avoid caffeine.

No: No, there is no need to drink whole milk during breastfeeding. The only difference is a higher fat content and that is unnecessary for the infant or you.
