    I had a glass of wine the day after they were born - it was served with dinner in hospital. I asked the pead about alcohol consupmtion and breastfeeding and was advised the best time to have a drink (and maybe stick to beer or wine which has a much lower alcohol content than spirits - I think) is immediatley after bub has had a feed that way you know that your body has 2 - 4 hours to breakdown the alchohol before bub is ready for the next feed

    I had my first drink at my mothers' group combined first birthday party recently. One glass of champaign and I was so tipsy I wouldn't have felt safe to drive I know the risks are small but I prefer not to drink at all while breastfeeding. Given that I intend to be BF or pregnant for the next four of five years I reckon it will be a while before I have more than a glass of an alcoholic drink

    I can't remember. I probably had half a glass of champers when we got home from the hospital (maybe?! I don't know now) But not really until she started going to bed and sleeping for a few hours at a stretch before waking up for a 10pm feed. It would have just been at home having an occasional drink.

    Almost straight afterwards

    I had a celebration glass or red when DD and I first came home from hospital (she was 5 days old and BF)

    First time I had 'a few' & expressed was when she was 6 weeks old and my BFF came to stay for the weekend/meet DD.
