Please don't laugh at my ignorance. Is it really OK to have a drink or two while BFing? And what is the "protocol" to follow? Pump and dump, wait a couple hours?
I'm asking because my SIL and I are still BFing and while at my other SIL's wedding she came over to the table all giddy with some fruity mixed drink and told me her LLL consultant told her one or two is fine. Then a friend told me she goes by the one hour per drink rule--one drink, wait one hour, two drinks, wait two hours- this way the alcohol has been metabolized and won't get to baby. Then another friend said she pumps and dumps or no drinking. The last friend interviewed said, "no way! no drinking at all!"
So I'm just really curious what's the consensus out there because I was always under the impression of "no alcohol whatsoever" DS still nurses many time during the day if that makes any difference. It's not that I really want to go out drinking, I actually don't miss it since it's been over two years but I wouldn't mind having one drink now! lol.
