I am going to try and br___t feed my baby and was wondering how alcohol will affect the baby as well as my supply? I love my wine and cant wait to have a glass when I pop him out..... What do you think about this???

I asked my doc about this and he said that a gla__s of wine/beer was fine and would not hurt the baby. However, anything you eat or drink will directly go into your b___stmilk, so you don't want to drink alot. You can always pump before you drink, bottle feed and then pump & dump after you drink, this is what most of my friends do.

I recieved a little information from a lactation consultant about this. If you are just having one drink after approx 24mins the alcohol will not pa__s through into your b___st milk. I would reseach the 'pump and dump' thing though as this is what we automatically a__sume is the correct thing to do however after a certain period of time the alcohol will not pa__s through into your milk, its a good idea to talk to a L.C if you can. Hope this helps.

Also I forgot to add that your baby can taste the difference in the milk if you do drink and will self limit.
