what is your feelings about breastfeeding mothers who drink alcohol?
There was a girl on my facebook that posted a picture of the breastmilk alcohol testing strips and was like "OMG REALLY?". While I think that no one should ever use those strips I put in my two cents about how a neighbor had used them and you would be suprised how much alcohol one had to consume before it would show up on the strip, and if I am going to drink more than one or two glasses of wine or beer, or more than one mixed drink I won't breastfeed for a while, (use stored up milk or formula since I suppliment anyways due to lack of supply). She said that she doesn't think that any one who is breastfeeding has any business drinking alcohol, and that providing for their child should be first on their minds. I however, am a 22 year old female, who has the legal right to drink alcohol, and don't even do it often, I have had more than two drinks once since having my baby, and see no problem with it, seeing as she was at my mothers house and hubby and I were having an "alone night". What is your stance on it?
