Thank you for the laugh! I have this image in my head...
When I was shopping for a pump last week I saw some home tests that would measure the amount of alcohol in your milk. I didn't really pay attention to it, so am not quite sure how it worked, if it tells you how much is too much or what not. If you were planning on having some beers or drinking a bit, couldn't you just pump and store before? This was my plan for New Years Eve, have gramma watch our little man and provide her with enough milk to keep him happy through the night and into the next day for me. I really worry about these things as well, and wonder how long the alcohol would stay in my milk... but have never been much of a drinker anyway.
