So last night between 8pm-1am I had about 10 wine coolers. I just pumped for the first time since then its about 10am. Will the alcohol be out of my milk or do I need to dump it? If there is any chance of alcohol I will be dump it but at the same time I hate wasting it... :) I also want to mention the baby has a little cold or allergies bothering him too incase that plays any part.

Were you sober enough to drive when you pumped?

If so, then your milk is safe for consumption. If no, dump it.

So you averaged 2 wine coolers an hour for 5 hours 9 hour ago...I'm going to guess you barely felt them in your system when you were drinking and I highly down you feel off now.  So with that said...

I wouldn't dump.  

Wine coolers barely have any alcohol in them.  It is 9 hours later.  Unless you are going to tell me you are still feeling effects of them...you are more than safe to use that milk.
