When and healthy

I heard that having a glass of red wine was healthy for the baby after a certain time, How safe is it? When will it be okay? I am very sceptical on hurting the baby and if having the glass hurts her then i wont have it, its no biggy for me, The only reason i concidered asking this question is if its healthy! I am 6 months!

  • well doctors don’t recommend it but they do say if you just have to have some just red wine to not drink more than 2oz a week and when you drink it drink twice as much water as you normally drink. But I was always to scared to drink more than a sip. A good guide to was is … 12 oz of wine = 8 oz of beer = 2 oz hard liquor ( I think that’s right). But keep in mind that yes any alcohol can be harmful. So I would talk to your doc 1st and if I were u for the safety of you baby I wouldn’t . I hoped I helped good luck.
