  • i dont know about hooka but alcohol usually takes 24 hours to leave your system completely so i would imagine that would include breast milk too.

  • Alcohol, you can have 1-2 drinks and safely nurse, any more then that wait 2-3 hrs per drink before nursing again. If you're not wasted, you can nurse. What was in the hookah?

  • the hookah is just like a cig so I would guess a few pump and dumps when the alcohol is out the tabacoo would be also

  • Whenever I had the occasional drink I would pump and dump and wait until the next day. Not sure about the smoking. I would call your local hospital (or look for a website) for a le leche league member. They are trained to let you know what you can do etc and guide you with breast feeding. I used one often with my son. :)
