post #41 of 92
haha. This thread really tickles me! I'm on my third child, and I don't really recall any comments from anyone about my drinkin' while nursin' before. But a few people have said stuff this time, like "you can't drink, can you?" I'm like "watch me!" I drink most nights ... sigh, that's how my days end with 3 daughters, 9, 5, & 6 months.

My current infant was 3 weeks overdue. During the last week, I went out to dinner most nights with my parents, who were anxiously awaiting her arrival. Nobody argued when I drank during those meals. I shared my husband's drink, I didn't want to cause too much of a sensation at the restaurants, though.

cheers!

I think drinking while nursing has a lot to do with why I'm all knocked up again.

cheers!

I usually have wine with dinner. :

Life doesn't get much better than a picnic of stinky cheeses, crusty bread and deliciously rich wine!

I'm so glad I stumbled upon this...I don't feel so freakish. Although I will admit my own mother was very dissappointed when we 1st went to their house after DS was born & I wouldn't have a beer. That went out the window by about 2.5 months, though. I think if we WERE to go out to dinner (something I haven't yet tried) I would probably steal sips from DH's.

I am so glad I found this thread. I enjoy the occasional margarita and even my mom is weirded out that I drink and nurse, even if I wait two hours.

So what's everyone's drink of choice. Mine's usually margaritas, but I found the best wine ever yesterday which is huge b/c I normally hate wine.

Drink of choice? Mmm... probably something fruity and sweet but I also enjoy red wine and beer. Sooo yummy. This mommy needs her warm, buzzy feeling, too.

I had wine and animal crackers during DD's nap today. It's been a long week.
post #52 of 92
Now that my 17 month old ds STTN without nursing (until 4 am or so...) I will definitely say CHEERS! (And Cheers! And Cheers!)
post #53 of 92
My drink of choice is mead, but i save that for special occasions. I usually drink (cheap) red or white wine.

Also a HUGE fan of vodka, but again that's rare.

Fantastic...I actually can find like-minded people on MDC. Cheers to that.

(And yes, animal crackers pair so well with wine!)

oooo this is great. I've always partaken and not really worried about it but lately for some reason I've started to question it. Now I feel better. I love my Vino!

nak

In this order: Champagne, red wine, kir (pin. grig. w/syrup), white wine, ale, white russian, margarita... But never mix!
post #57 of 92
My drinks of choice: gin and tonic or red wine.

DH has decided that we no longer drink, though...at least until the baby is weaned. And she's only 3 months old.
post #58 of 92
drinks of choice: cheap white or rose wine , caesars, screwdrivers. Pretty much anything, I just don't get to drink often.
post #59 of 92
mmm I just put the baby to bed and I'm enjoying a nice beer right now. I've had some mom friends startled when I drank while BFing but I just patiently explained to them how the blood alcohol content of alcohol is the same as what's in the breastmilk (ie negligible amounts) and now they jump to my defence if we're out with others.
I remember my neighbours glaring at me while I was enjoying half a beer while BFing my newborn. My midwife told them she prescribed it! LOL

CHEERS!!

It's 10am here in good ol' Guam, so i'll wait at least a few hours but I usually have 3-4 beers a week....or more :

I am also European so I got the "Ohhh, well that's OK then" looks when I was pregnant and drinking Guinness. Which is, btw, the recommended drink for pregnant women in the UK- as per my Mother..."It's got tons of iron sweeeetie".
