I have a wedding to attend next week and would like to have a couple of beers my mother in law will be taking care of my son. I dont know the procedure to pumping and dumping if i would like to have a few beers. Can someone answer this for me. I have breastmilk storded in the freezer for this occassion. But i do not know how long after i have to wait to nurse again and do i have to pump and dump before i nurse and is it one hour after each drink you are suppose to wait?
i think it's a few hours atleast depending on how much you consume in the time you consume it in... If you only have 3 or 4 over the evening I would just wait and pump the next morning.. as for pump and dump, i'm not sure how much would still be in your system for it, but i would dump the first one atleast just to be safe
you don't need to pump and dump.....except maybe to keep your production up or relieve engorgement...alcohol leaves your breastmilk the same way it leaves your blood...it just takes 2-3 hours after you stop drinking, so you will want to wait at least that long to nurse. http://www.kellymom.com/health/lifestyle/alcohol.html
