    Default Breast milk and alcohol

    Generally how long does it take for 1 standard drink of alcohol to leave your system so it is safe to breast feed?

    The same amount of time it takes for your body to process a drink. Dependant on weight etc. I think its 2 hours.

    I always went by the rule if I would drive, I can feed. So 1 standard drink per hour (maximum of 2 drinks for me though).
    The ABA has an app you can download where you enter your weight etc and it does a countdown for how long it takes alcohol to completely clear from the blood****** (and therefore breast milk).
