If you have ever breastfed or are breastfeeding... have you had a drink while breastfeeding? just one? a couple? I had three drinks one night (I am breastfeeding) after my son went to sleep. He ate later that night, though. They say that there are only trace amounts in the milk you produce. It didn't affect him at all.

No idea, Sorry. Before I answer this question, I like to think about, why this thread was created ? And what was the real motive for this question? When I find nothing wrong, immediately I prefer to answer. However I like questions on science and politics but don't ignore other members requests. I'm thankful to mylot for giving such opportunity to share our views with international members.

from what i have read or heard it leaves your milk in about 2 hours per drink, i dont really drink so it isnt a propblem for me. but someone had told me before to "pump and dump" but now from what i understand it just wastes your milk to do that. just wait a couple hours and you should be fine to nurse

When I nursed I had a drink every now and then, it didn't seem to affect the baby, but if I had a few drinks, I'd just bottle feed for the next couple of feeding to be on the safe side.

40 years ago when I had my 1st, (the old days), I spent a week at my mother's,(her idea),so I would get some rest. I must have been anxious about something because one day she said I needed to calm down. she insited that I have a small glass of sherry. I hate the taste of liquour, but I had that glass of sherry. She also thought it a good idea to have a little bran on my cereal. well!! We won't even go into that except to say, I must of changed a zillion diapers that day!!!
