I drink wine and dont pump and dump. Now usually, it happens to be when my DD is asleep for the night, so its a while till she nurses again but sometimes she wakes up around 11 or 12 to eat. I dont worry too much about it. I dont get sloshed, just a glass or two.

I drink a glass of wine 3-5 nights a week and dd never seems bothered. Moderation is key.

You can have a big old glass of wine right now if you would like... just not more than 1 or 2. -

BoatBaby, sounds lovely
I am in the ABAC group, I have been known to enjoy a beer while nursing Ds. Get some pretty strange looks doing that in public though LOL

You should see the looks I got while doing a beer sampling with dd in my sling. Priceless.

Really, a few sips is nothing.

I also had the occasional beer while pg. Oh the horror. When strangers would comment I would dial the midwife and pass them the phone.

Have your drink and enjoy. Personally, I'm a beer woman.

Having a beer is supposed to be a good way to increase supply. I can't speak from experience, but I've read that.

I just returned from Napa, where I tasted many fine wines- Zinfandels are my current favorite.
Ella was in a sling, and I got plenty of nice comments about how happy she looked, and also some about the baby appreciating wine as well-the people were just being cute, but I liked the fact that they assumed we were breastfeeding!

I thought our neighbor and Thanksgiving dinner guest was going to flip out when I, 41 weeks pregnant, drank a glass of wine.

I've had a few drinks while nursing dd (wine and mixed) and no pump and dump here. If anything the wine has helped my milk let down. It's never adversely affected my supply. DD has never had any problems (or objected to the taste, or anything). Have a glass of wine.

Oh, I'm so glad I found this thread, it has been so educational.
I couldn't find any good info about alchohol and breastfeeding, except the standard advice of the occasional 1-2 drinks, but no explanation.
And I thought maybe the alchohol accumulated in the milk, but it's good to know it stays the same as blood alchohol levels.

We were living in Sonoma county for the past year and I 'tasted' (two large glasses) a lot of wine while nursing frequently. It didn't seem to affect ds at all, but I still wondered if maybe it could be bad for him.

From what I've read here I think I feel okay about it now.


I don't like how this is the only drinking smiley... there should be a sophisticated bf mom holding a glass of red wine....

I think I usually don't have wine (even though I really love it) because I am afraid to cosleep after drinking wine. I haven't had a glass of wine since finding out I was pregnant and I am afraid I would be sleepy.

If I hadn't enjoyed a glass or two of wine, I wouldn't be pg with #2!

I'd nurse DS to sleep, then DH and I would enjoy our dinner with a glass of wine, or dessert and wine. And then...you know . By the time I went to bed, the wine would have worn off. We cosleep as well, and I never went to bed tipsy.
