The rule of thumb is if you are too drunk to drive you are too drunk to breastfeed. Beyond that enjoy your daiquiris. BTW you never have to pump and dump unless baby is missing a feeding (to relieve engorgement and to keep on your schedule). Alcohol leaves your milk in the same way it leaves your blood stream, no amount of pumping will eliminate the alcohol content.

"stick to the 1 drink per hour rule and you'll be fine"
How do you know this? Are you a dr or even a nurse? I can't stand it when moms give medical advice like this. If you don't know for a fact, 100%, that her baby will be fine with 2 drinks then don't tell her this.
