Yep. I have a small glass of wine as soon as DS has finished feeding. Heaps of time for the alcohol to leave my system before the next feed (3-4 hourly feeds).
ETA: obviously I don't mean every feed!
Also helped relieve some of the excess milk so I wasn't in pain/leaking.
I didn't pump and dump...... I drank wine in moderation the entire 14 month I was feeding DS
I sometimes have a glass of wine or cider after I have fed DD at her bedtime. Only pump & dumped once (at a hens & had nowhere to store it & had had a few drinks not long before). If I do have too much then I have a stash of EBM in the freezer.
No I didn't and I wouldn't...ever.
Yes I have. Once my DS could sleep through the night I have had a few drinks in the evening. I'm fairly confident that it was out of my system the 8 hours after I fed my DS.
I occasionally have a well-timed drink or two, although DS is 8.5 months and I can count those occasions on one hand.
Yep sure did, I've never been a big drinker but I do have 1-2 glasses of wine every 1-2 months but then I might not have any for 3-4 months just depends. Im of the belief that if the odd glass of alcohol is why you want to wean then just have a drink or 3. Lord knows I sacrifice enough by breastfeeding each child for 3ish years I don't think the odd glass of wine is going to harm them.
