BF and the occasional alcoholic drink — The Bump
Breastfeeding

BF and the occasional alcoholic drink

just wondering what the recommendations are.  The LC at the hospital said "a glass of wine or so" after dinner is fine... and my sis-in-laws who are breastfeeding seem to have an occasional beer or two.

My DS is just twelve days old... and with feeding so often, I wonder if the alcohol would really be enough out of my system before the next feeding (as I'm feeding every 2-3 hours right now).

 Just wondering what you all think.  is the occasional drink o.k.?  Or would you wait until the feedings get a bit more spaced out?  I'm not desperate to have alcohol, but the occasional drink might be nice, given it's been so long!

 Thanks!

  • I have a drink here and there. I had wine, beer, margaritas...dark beer is actually good for your supply.

    Here is a Kellymom link with good info. No need to pump & dump!

  • My LC recommended waiting 2 hours per drink before feeding.  LO is eating so frequently right now that I have decided not to drink, but I think you should be fine.

    My LC said if you can drive after the drink then you can nurse.
