  • i breast fed dd just when i wanted to drink i planned it so i would pump a couple days in head of time and had formula on hand just in case i didnt pum enough...i pumped enough for 24 hrs of average feeding so that i didnt have a time limit on how much i could drink or when to stop drinking and i always packed my dd off to a sitter or my parents so i would have to be responsiable for her while drinking or dealing with her in the morning with a hang over

  • blah thats the same drink i've been craving for seven months

    redbull is terrible for pregnancy and breastfeeding, probably worse than vodka

    anyways what ive read is that newborns can't metabolize alcohol as well as an older baby might be able to, so be very careful plus they eat every 2 or so hours so there's not much time to get that drink in

    you're supposed to breastfeed for 12 months to two years. its ridiculous.

  • I'd wait until your baby is sleeping longer than 2-3 hrs, or if you just really are wanting to drink, then you could let the baby have formula for one night, so the alcohol doesn't overwhelm your BM.
