Recent studies show that your breast milk has the same alcohol content as your blood. So there is less recommendation to pump and dump. BUt you should wait until the alcohol has worked its way out of your system. Estimate and hour per drink.
Thats what our lactation consultant told us too!
Yes, no reason to pump and dump unless you are SO FULL that you need to pump some for comfort :)
That was my main reason for pumping and dumping. I would ache so bad, ugh.

I had my first child in April 2013, just before our one year anniversary. Riley has been an absolute joy and I love every minute of being mom. But I am the first among my friends to have a child, so there isn't always an easy place to go for advice.
