I know babies can't have honey for their first year but what about the mom?

Yes, the honey that you consume won't affect the milk your baby ingests.

yes, the baby just can't eat honey, until he/she is about two, I think.

Yes, of course you can. Honey will boost your and your baby immunity, supply with nutrients you need and help you have more nutritional breast milk to feed your baby. Go ahead with a boost of 2 tablespoons of honey in a glass of water every morning.
