Breastfeeding and beer

I drank about eight ounces of beer. Baby woke up within 30-60minutes after consuming and wanted to nurse. Is it okay to nurse him? He will be 7 months old on the 13th.

I have been told many time safe to drive is safe to nurse.
If you worried they have little test strips at walmart that you dip in your milk to test for alchol. But one beer wont do anything.

One beer won't hurt. I've done it before. Beer has less alcohol than wine (typically) and just 8 oz. should be just fine. :)

Safe to drive = safe to nurse. Alcohol metabolizes out of your milk as it metabolizes out of your blood.

You should be fine but if you're worried about it you can give the baby formula for one feeding and use the pump on yourself if you feel engorged, then dump it if you don't feel comfortable.

Well I drank two Saturday night as well. Other than this weekend it's been 5 months since I've touched a beer.
