  • What is the question?
    If you want my opinion I think it is wrong. My child birth educator, though, said if you want to have a glass of wine( not get drunk or have heavy alcohol) then just pump afterwards and throw that batch of milk away.

  • 1-2 drinks is fine....as a rule...if you are safe to drive you are safe to feed.

  • First off I think its wrong for a mother to even consider alchol while breast feeding,you obviously want to do the best thing for your child so DONT drink!But I will say walgreens in the baby section has in home alchol testing for your breast milk,do that before feeding your baby.

  • A glass of wine or A beer wont hurt. More than that you should pump and dump. Be careful though
