 What I do is to cut my wine with a mixer... like, sparkling lemonade with white wine,  then I can have 2-3 glasses.    Also, when having beer at a party, or something, I will bring non alcoholic and have my 1 real beer and then switch to the NA for social drinking purposes.   I find I really like the act of drinking socially more than the actual alcohol!  (this when I'm actually nursing an infant!  Preggers right now  :)

Remember that you wouldn't want to actually get drunk while with baby no matter how he is fed.   You can always go out and have a few drinks while he's with a sitter.  :)

good idea on the non-alcoholic (although not as fun, lol).  no i wouldnt get drunk while caring for him, i just miss the "good buzz"  lol.

congrats on your little bun in the oven!

Honestly, I've never understood why people get buzzed or drunk on purpose.

i guess i have spent a good 10-15 yrs of drinking to get buzzed and drunk and i enjoyed it.  its fun to get drunk.  but it is MUCH more fun to play with my DS and make him laugh!!  :)

i have to admit...  i was one of thos "college party gals", then i was a "bar fly".  those days have been long gone, lol.  the past cpl yrs, before i had DS i was a "relax with a cpl glasses of wine".   now i am a "happy mommy".  i love BF and i LOVE being a mommy!  :)

i was actually able to have a cpl glasses,  i just had to pace myself correctly.  not the same as it used to be!

i had a glass about an hr before i had to feed DS.  then i folded some laundry, and drank some water.  i fed him, then i had another 1/2 glass.  i am blessed to have a baby who eats every 4 hrs so i was able to have one more glass and a SLIGHT buzz for about a half hr before sobering up to feed him  (these not even full 3 glasses were with food and lots of water and between the hrs of 7-12).  honestly that kind of sobering is not bad at all, i actually looked fwd to it!  having such a great reason to sober up makes it easy.  bc we all know it is not easy to find a good reason to sober up, lol.

Honey, welcome to real life. **smile**

I too have never understood drinking to get drunk. I was the one who used to take the blackmail photos. The kind you never want on Facebook. Good thing there was no Facebook then!

ha ha ha!!

i said that to my roomate from college the other day!!!!  Thank God there was no Facebook when we were in college!!!   i had a hard enough time getting into the bars with a fake ID nevermind all the dirty laundry on FB!!  :)

I hope by the time DS gets to be 18 there is no FB!  doubt he could be so lucky.  :)
