  • yes, like 24 hours to be sure. there are some strips you can buy that dip into the breast milk to see if there is still alcohol in there too

  • One or two drinks a few of hours, binge drinking...24-36 hours.

  • I guess LLL says that if you wait one hour per each drink you have, then it will metabolize and you won't have to pump and dump. I just heard this from a bfing friend today who is pretty picky about things, so it;s probably true, but I would check into it anyways.

  • Jeez it ain't worth it....even after a big night though milk is fine by morning normally. What a waste of milk.
