Breastfeeding

skipping a feeding

Will skipping a feeding hurt my supply? My son is already 3 months old and I EBF. I'm going to a BBQ today and want to enjoy a beer or two, I'm going to bring some milk just in case I need it. Will this hurt my supply at all??

Re: skipping a feeding

  • Why would you skip a feeding if it's only a beer or two?  As long as you're safe to drive, you're safe to BF.

    This. You can also "pump and dump" if you are iffy about it.

    Or purchase Milkscreen Test Strips. You pump, dip a test strip and it will tell if it it's safe or not. I got them as a gift and only used them twice. They're a good back up if you need that piece of mind.

    I was worried I would be very buzzed off of two beers since the beer I drink is about 7% or 8%. I have the milk test strips too, I really need to start using those. I just want to make sure my milk is super safe for my baby, thanks for the input ladies :)
