my baby is breastfed mostly..and gets the ocassional formula bottle..tonight is a special girls night out (with 3 kids this happens NEVER lol) i plan to have a few drinks , i need to know whats safe ..whats not..how many can i have? do i need to pump and dump? any info ladies..my party time is starting shortly! lol
i wouldnt about it if your only having a few. Maybe pump one bottle before you leave, by the time you are done your last drink id say if an hour or 2 goes by you'll be fine.
They say if u can drive then u can drink a cpl... And it wont affect baby...
Drink whatever u want... when u feel sober, its ok to breastfeed,
Only pump and dump if you are uncomfortable or are gonna be out for 4-8 hours depending on your feeding schedule. But Therese once you're sober (approx 1-2 hrs per drink) u can bf again. Have fun.
They also have little strips you can buy if you are really worried. You just put a drop of breastmilk on them and if they change color then it means there is alcohol in it... 1 or 2 drinks didnt really do anything to them
thanks ladies! i feel at ease now..i cant exceed 3 beers it seems like..so ill stick to 3 hahah
Do NOT pump and dump. You're just wasting breast milk. It will leave your system the same time it leaves your blood stream. If you can drive, you can feed. And something like one or two drinks won't affect your breast milk that badly anyway.
