Coffee can make some babies fussy, so it would be worth cutting back on caffeine to see if that helps your baby. Something else that may be happening is that you have forceful letdown or your body produces too much fore milk. Pumping a few minutes until letdown before feeding can help with both of these issues.

Good luck to you.

Absoultly cut the caffine!!! Holy cow! You are really supposed to have little to no caffiene. 1 cup a day at the most. And one issue you may be having is that you are drinking all of that coffee during the day and using the milk you pump while you are at work for nighttime feedings. Think about that. You may be giving her caffinated milk at night! LOL!
