    Don't let a couple of drinks stop you feeding.
    It is nothing like pregnancy. If you drink when pregnant, the foetus gets the same dose that you do. But when breastfeeding it is diluted so the baby gets a far lower dose than the mother. However the taste can put baby off.
    And the biggest risk of feeding after drinking is in injuring the baby.

    I would occasionally have one or two glasses of wine once they started sleeping for longer stretches at night. There was always lots of expressed milk in the freezer and I would just pump and dump if I felt tipsy. I chose not to drink at all during both pregnancys so it was nice to be able to enjoy a glass of wine again

So have the time frame there to have a few glasses & not effect my milk.
    It's actually based on weight..there is a chart around which is good I'll see if I can find it.

    Hmmm. I have to disagree with this. A baby does not have a "glass of wine" if you do while pregnant.

    People talk about the scientific evidence that suggest that drinking and breastfeeding is preferable to giving formula. I'd like to see the studies please. Has anyone got a link?

    <sigh> I didn't drink at all during BF or pregnancy. But I don't believe it's useful to question others who did and diagnose the matter - the only purpose of this is to make mothers who did have a drink here and there feel bad! I'm sick of how we are so critical of mums for everything!! I think we all know most mums are sensible in this regard.
