Safe to drive, safe to nurse.  No need to pump and dump.

No, you don't have to wait at all. One glass of wine is not enough to impact your milk. If you feel drunk then wait until you sober up to nurse. It leaves the milk when it leaves the blood stream. One or two drinks is totally fine to nurse and can even help.

The general rule is safe to drive, safe to nurse. One glass of wine probably won't have any affect really. You should be fine :) When I was nursing, if we went out for the night or something and had some drinks, I'd just make sure I had an extra bottle of pumped milk in the fridge just in case.

Someone told me once that if you pump out the milk after a beer or two and leave it uncovered in the fridge, the alcohol would evaporate out.

I've never been sure about this, but I only ever had (nasty) champagne twice during nursing so I guess I really don't have a worry.

I'd wait an hour or two just for good measure but if you only have one glass you'd be fine nursing.

This is true. No need to dump pumped milk if you've had alcohol.
