For moms who breast feed, a daily cup of coffee or two won't keep their babies awake.

A new Brazilian study found that the breast-fed babies of coffee drinking moms are no more likely to have trouble sleeping than babies whose mothers do not have a coffee habit.

The study published in the journal Pediatrics does not endorse heavy caffeine intake during pregnancy or breast feeding. But researchers say a modest amount does not appear to pose a danger.
