3 weeks after i had DD was my 21st. I had expressed a heap in those 3 weeks so i could have a drink at my bday dinner and not worry about feeding.
I had 1 and a half drinks and i was DRUNK! I couldnt even finish my second drink and was ready to go home and sleep
I didnt have another drink till about a month later at christmas and i managed to finish 4 (little) drinks before feeling tipsy and needing to go to bed.

I fell pregnant with DD1 in March 2005 and had my first drink since having her in March this year! I didn't want to consume any alcohol when breastfeeding or pregnant and I did that back to back until May this year when my third baby weaned but I went away for the weekend in March so had one drink with dinner.
I did have the neck of one of those mixed drinks at a 40th birthday party in Feb because DS was night weaned but stopped because I had to drive home and it was making me feel light headed!

I am not a regular drinker, and was even less of one when I first had my daughter, so I have no idea how long it would have been. It wouldn't have been something I even thought about.
That said, if I wanted to drink soon after I had a baby, I would be thinking about 2 things....
1. Am I breastfeeding? If I was, I wouldn't drink.
2. Who is going to care for my child while under the influence? If it was me or my partner, and we were both drinking, then I wouldn't drink.
Like I said though, drinking isn't a big part of my life, so it's an easy thing for me to go without.

1 Week after DS was born. We were still in hospital and a midwife had given me a small bottle of white wine because she felt sorry for me being in hospital with DS still on Christmas day. It was only half a glass anyway

My DS is 8 months old and I haven't had a drink since I found out I was pregnant.
He is too unpredictable with feeding, I am thinking of having 1 or 2 on Christmas Day but probably wont, because I'm lazy

I occasionally have a small glass of wine with tea or a beer or something and breastfeed probably within 2 or 3 hours. I don't time it but I don't drink often or much. I did the same with my son. From my reading about this, its not really a big deal as a very minute amount of alcohol actually passes into breastmilk and the main thing is to drink little and leave a few hours before feeding. My daughter doesn't drink from a bottle so I don't express. I have had only a handfull of alcoholic drinks since giving birth six months ago. It affects me more than it used to be and we co sleep so its not safe to be under the influence

my birthday was 2 and half weeks after my DD's birth, and I had a glass of wine. well, half a glass, i fell asleep before I could finish it.
I have gotten proper drunk only once since finding out I was pg, and that was a few days ago. i didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would, and I couldn't bf for ages afterwards as the % was reading too high for a lot longer than I had anticipated.

A glass of bubbles with DH a few hours after she was born.
The next drink after that I can't remember.
