Wine and breastfeeding

Hi I am in the mood to have a small glass of Arbor Mist flavored wine about 5 oz. My son is almost 8 mos and is solely breastfed. I was wondering others thoughts about if I can have a glass and still pump the milk. Or does it need to be thrown out? I am a lil concerned but he is sensitive to everything, so he cannot have too much food and no formula. I just need a lil something different. Any advice.

  • Sober enough to drive, sober enough to nurse. No need to pump.

  • You dont need to pump and dump...the truth is if you...after your babies last feeding you can have a drink..or 2 and as long as you are not tipsy your baby will have no effects...it takes an hour to metabolize 1 drink 8oz......enjoy...I did a lot of research..lol

  • Alcohol filters out of your breastmilk like it does your blood. As of last year (when I was BFing) there was no reason to pump and dump.

  • Enjoy your glass of wine. Or two. Any more then 2, I would recommend waiting 2-3 hrs per drink before nursing again.
