We are going out to dinner for our wedding anniversary tonight. I am 12 days PP and was contemplating a glass of campaign. But, I'm breastfeeding. I do gave quite a supply building up in the freezer so he won't go without..but how long should I wait to nurse him again if I choose to have a glass which I probably won't but just in case lol

Most people go with a fine to drive, fine to nurse policy. I had the occasional drink while breastfeeding my daughter and never waited to nurse. One glass of champagne shouldn't be a problem.

No! lol

For one glass, you would still be fine to nurse right away. For every drink after that, its 1-2 hours. No need to pump and dump (unless you're sore). When the milk leaves your bloodstream, its no longer in your milk.

One glass of wine is nothing. Enjoy, happy anniversary :)

1 glass, you will be fine to breastfeed right away. Anything after that is 2 hrs per drink. And there is no need to pump and dump just to be clear. Alcohol leaves breast milk just as it does blood

I was always told 1 hr per drink if ur planning on having more than 4 drinks. But ive always just froze some for whoever was watching the baby while i was drinking and just pumped and dumpedthe one before feeding the baby again on the boob but its mostly whatever you as a momma feel comfortable doing (=

Safe to drive, safe to nurse.

There's no reason to pump and dump either as it doesn't stay in your milk.  

Happy Anniversary!

I heard a glass of red wine will help milk production if your having a hard time lactating in the beginning..

 I was always told to 'pump&dump' for the next 12hrs... Nice to know that isn't policy. I'm only 6.3wks pregnant w/ #3...but I'll have to write this down! I hated to pump&dump.
