Im so glad that the new study shows that drinking alcohol while breastfeeding is not a good idea & that it goes straight into the milk 30-60 mins after drinking it.
They advise that should you have a glass ( although are not advising this ) that you feed bubs then have your glass of alcohol then wait at least 3hrs before feeding bubs again !
The study showed many women were drinking at the level they did before falling pregnant because they dont know the facts.
So many mis-truths out there & they have been all shown to be wrong even the drinking of a stout to help with milk flow etc it has instead found to hinder it !
As one of the mums that was shown on the t.v said " i wouldnt put alcohol in a bottle for her to drink so why would i drink it ??? " & i totally agree !!!!
Imagine if any of the bottle feeding mums did this !
Anyways well done to the Curtin University for their great study that helps disspell the myths & let us mums know what the right thing to do is & make informed choices
