Ok. You can not drink while in the act of breastfeeding but you can safely drink while nursing. It takes 1 hour a glass/shot to get out of your system. ALcohol leaves your milk like it does your blood stream so if you have 1 glass 6 oz of wine, or 1 beer than wait 1 hour before nursing, etc. :) ALso, the rule really is "safe to drive, safe to nurse".. go to kellymom.com they have tons of info.
pumping and dumping is ineffective unless you get engorged etc. As I said, alcohol leaves your milk like it leaves your blood stream.. no matter how much you pump.
