No. With just one drink, you can nurse when you need to. Any more then 2 drinks, I'd wait 2-3 hrs before nursing. But, you never need to pump and dump. It's just a waste of time, energy, and most importantly, MILK! It does NOT rid your milk of alcohol any faster. Alcohol leaves your milk as it does your blood, and nothing will speed that up. Basically, if you're not wasted, you can nurse safely. If you have had a LOT to drink, and are going to be missing a feeding, you can pump to relive any discomfort, or keep up with supply, but you don't HAVE to.
