Probably not an important discussion but i needed to vent. DH and I finally went out to dinner yesterday for valentines day since my LO has been born (hes 4 months). I had 3 glasses of champagne and had a bottle of pumped milk ready for him for when he wakes up (around 12:30, 1is) he woke up around 12:30 and i fed him 5 ounces which is more than he normally eats but he still wanted to suck, he is used to sucking on my nipple to help him go to sleep, I had no option but to let him suck. I know he got some of my milk although it was not a lot. Even though a few hours went by before he ate, i feel horrible that i drank and let him suck. DH and MIL are making me feel horrible and i have been stressing all day about it. Just wanted to vent :-/
Re: feeling like the worst mom in the world.
The amount of alcohol that actually goes into breast milk is pretty low as is, and as long as you waited a few hours he probably got next to none. It's nothing to worry about, pumping and dumping is pretty much pointless unless you got hammered and had to pump within the hour or so. Also champagne isn't that strong to begin with?
