Breastfeeding Moms Breastfeeding Moms

Don't judge. But I need some advice with drinking and nursing

Posted by   + Show Post
Hello everyone I am a mother of three and had my third a month ago. I had my first night out last and got pretty tipsy, the kids spent the night with their grandparents, but I had 3 beers, 3 shots, and a mixed drink. I had the last drink at 130 so I was gonna wait 24 hours before breastfeeding. Does that sound about right? I was gonna hand express and dump since I am going so long without BF, and I had already pumped enough for him to have for a 24 hour period. Please no negative comments, moms need breaks sometimes too, and I love and take very good care of my children. Thank you in advance

And this, too.  Since alcohol will dehydrate you make sure you're drinking extra water :) 

Quoting GE1:

I drink every now and then too. We all do as long as you are not drunk, no reason to dump. I suggest you drink a lot of water though

i wish i knew all that when i had like 2 beers when dd1 was a week old. i thought you HAD to pump for 24hrs since alcohol stayed in your system for awhile. now i know better. i WILL be having myself a glass of wine from time to time!

dont worry, we all need to relax sometimes :)
