    i would never mix alcohol in to my daughters feed so i wouldnt ever breast feed with milk that had ANY chance of having alcohol in it, so no way would i ever drink alcohol when breast feeding, or while pregnant for that matter no way not ever

    Curious too . I have had a drink or 2 and fed DD. I tend to have 1 standard drink (low alc. Cider) either while I'm feeding or soon after then wait a few hours.. I do wonder whether I should FF after a drink though?

Talk about cherry picking scientific advice.

    This from the mayo clinic "Breast-feeding and alcohol don't mix well. There's no level of alcohol in breast milk that's considered safe for a baby to drink."

    I personally a few wines when pregnant with my first. Not with the others.
    They also say this

    "If you choose to drink, avoid breast-feeding until alcohol has completely cleared your breast milk. This typically takes two to three hours for 12 ounces (340 grams) of 5 percent beer, 5 ounces (142 grams) of 11 percent wine or 1.5 ounces (43 grams) of 40 percent liquor, depending on your body weight.

    Pumping and dumping breast milk isn't necessary and doesn't speed the elimination of alcohol from your body.

    Remember, breast-feeding is the optimal way to feed a newborn and is recommended until a baby is age 1. If you choose to drink, plan carefully to avoid exposing your baby to alcohol."

    Nobody here is saying they get plastered regularly and breastfeed while still under the effects of large alcohol consumption.

    In the end I believe telling women that they should abstain from alcohol leads to shorter breastfeeding duration which I think causes more harm than the odd glass of alcohol.

    I agree thermolicious. That's why I used the breast milk testing strips. I love my wine and 40 weeks without it was enough for me. I loved breast feeding and am really looking forward to doing it again with this Bub. I will enjoy a glass of wine straight after a feed and it should be fine by the time the next feed is due. If not i,will use frozen breastmilk from the freezer. There is no need to abstain all together. However, I know lots of people who choose not to drink while feeding!! Each to their own. I'm sure we can all have our own opinions without producing yet another nasty thread!

    Breastfeeding while pregnant should be safe providing you follow the guidelines, this ABA site has a pdf at the bottom which gives you estimated times for different body weights and types of alcohol.

    https://www.breastfeeding.asn.au/bf-...-breastfeeding

    I usually wait an extra couple of hours than they recommend to allow for any other factors, and I use the strips to test my milk for any alcohol before I feed my baby.

    I didn't drink while pregnant, I didn't even dye my hair or drink any coffee, but breastfeeding allows you more freedom as you can pump and use expressed milk or drink early enough to wait safely until the next feed.

    Absolutely agree. I've been pregnant and/or breast feeding continually since Feb 2008. At least I can have a couple of drinks while breast feeding as I have another 2-3 years breast feeding to go... and that's if we don't have another baby.

    Agree. I have just finished nine years of continuos pregnancy and breastfeeding. I have definitely had the odd glass of wine without worrying too much.
