I'm breastfeeding, baby is 3 month old, when can I drink coffee?

Drink coffee. You may drink coffee anytime you wish as long as you drink in moderation. Limit your intake to two cups a day.
Now. The caffeine in coffee is considered safe during lactation after the newborn period. Consumption around the time of delivery has problems because baby has not developed a way of getting rid of it easily and it can linger in the system for days, producing irritability and poor feeding. After the first week it is broken down more like adults and is seldom a cause of baby symptoms.

Can I drink a cup of coffee and one cup of tea a day during breastfeeding? My son is 6m old!?

Likely OK. Newborns can have some trouble metabolizing caffeine but at 6m the exposure proposed is considered relatively safe during breast feeding. There is evidence that chronic caffeine use can lower the iron content of breast milk but in low to moderate amounts tis is less a issue. Rarely irritability & insomnia can arise in sensitive infants.
