3 Bumps

Pump question.

If I wanna have a few glasses of wine or my birthday tonight , how much should I pump? I didn't breast feed my daughter so I have no idea about it and googling it gives me a bunch of info that's written by docs and I don't really understand it cos I'm not a doctor..

  • there are kits at drug stores & walmart to test your milk to see if there is alcohol in it... and pump & dump any milk with alcohol in it and maybe more to be safe

  • How much should I pump and throw out, lie how many bottles?

  • I've seen women post on here that if you're safe to drive, you're safe to nurse - the alcohol will leave your milk like it does your blood. So technically you wouldn't have to pump and dump, just pump some ahead.
