Do you drink alcohol when you are breastfeeding?
I found this great article explaining how much alcohol is safe to drink when you are breastfeeding your baby.
I will have an occasional drink when I am breastfeeding. I always wait at least one hour before I breastfeed my baby after I drink alcohol. I will never feed my baby while I still feel the alcohol. I have never found the need to pump and dump. I think that moderation is key and that as long as I am only drinking occasionally and not drinking to get totally wasted, it shouldn't be a problem.
My sister in law used to drink a glass of wine a night just to make 'the baby sleep'. All of her kids have learning disabilities...Coindence? I think not....
I do think a glass here and there will not hurt. But wait and let your body process it.. Like feed baby, drink your glass and by the time baby is ready to eat again you're good. But I have never tried that theory though seen my sister do it that way and her kids are fine.
