    I've had a well timed glass of wine on a couple of occaisions but didn't really enjoy it as was too busy worrying about whether DS would choose that night to want a feed earlier than usual....so don't really bother anymore.....Once he's not having any night feeds I'll try again.

    This is me too, I've been pregnant and or breastfeeding (including tandem feeding) since December 06 I honestly feel no guilt whatsoever for the odd glass or 2 of wine!

    I think common sense is the key here

    I've had the occasional glass of wine. Like once every two months. It's always timed so that the alcohol would have left my system by the time DD would be due for a feed, or she has EBM.

    completely agree.
    and this is a thread asking if you drank alcohol while you were breastfeeding, not (another ) debate about breastfeeding versus formula.

    surely all the pro-breastfeeders out there would rather a woman have the odd glass of wine, give baby a bottle or a breastfeed, than choosing not to breastfeed at all?

    When breastfeeding I had a table on a pamphlet from the hospital that was v handy. You just look up your weight and number if standard drinks and it gave an estimate for how long it takes for the alcohol to be eliminated from
    Breast milk. I didn't drink often, and never a lot but I used this as a guide. I only 'pumped & dumped' to relieve heavy boobs.

    Sorry for late reply. To clarify the foetus will have the same blood-alcohol concentration as the mother. A breastfeeding baby will have a much lower blood reading than the mother. e.g. if The point is that information on alcohol and pregnancy does not apply to breast-feeding.
    Another way: after a couple of drinks, your breast milk might have the same amount of alcohol as that naturally ocurring in fruit juice.
