I've heard 1 glass is fine, any after that wait 2 hours per glass to feed again. Probably better not to do it too often, like only special occasions. I personally don't drink while bf but not judging. Just be safe

This. If you aren't drunk, nurse. If you are drunk, don't nurse until sober again.

I know what I feel comfortable with. I don't handle too much alcohol, so I only have like 1/4 cup full.

I just read up on it because we are at a concert and I had a beer, you can have 2drinks (recommended) no need to pump and dump and wait about 2hrs to nurse and yes safe to drive safe to feed.

no you shouldn't have a couple of glasses of wine while breastfeeding.. if you truly want to, switch the baby to formula, or don't drink at all.

A beer is actually great for milk production.

I wouldn't drink hard liquor, but a glass of beer or wine isn't anything to worry about.
