I take a sip out of my husbands beer before I pour it in his glass...

That's harmless, right?

Only a handful of weeks left til i deliver. I just want to taste it.

  • I did it too. I had a sip of wine each week at communion too. I'm not too high & mighty to admit it. Maybe I'm a terrible mom. Maybe not.

  • I doubt one sip is actually truly harmful BUT why would you even want to take the tiniest of chances? I wouldn't even eat anything that had been baked with any type of alcohol when I was pregnant. It was an absolute non-issue. Because you are asking, you are concerned. You can live without that taste for the next few weeks and longer if you are planning to nurse.

  • i dont know if its harmful in such a small amount, but if you made it this far you can wait until you deliver im sure, WILL POWER

  • When you bake with alcohol. the alcohol burns off. And it just keeps the taste of it. so eating food that was baked or cook with alcohol is ok to eat

  • Windy, it is ok to have one beer right after BF your baby, and nursing next time the baby is hungry. It helps with milk production. I would wait until the baby is eat at least 3 hours apart personally, but it's not going to harm the baby. And while ALL the alcohol doesn't leave when cooked, there's not enough in it to be concerned, and one sip of beer isn't going to hurt the baby. At least she's not drinking a few! That might harm the baby.
