Not drinking alcohol is the safest option for breastfeeding mothers. Generally, moderate alcohol consumption by a breastfeeding mother (up to 1 standard drink per day) is not known to be harmful to the infant, especially if the mother waits at least 2 hours after a single drink before nursing.

Breastfeeding and Alcohol

I never drank while breast feeding, personal choice, even if the chance was minimal of passing to baby I wasn’t going to risk it

The first time I had a drink after my son was born and while breastfeeding, I made sure I pumped enough for 2 feeds before hand and pumped an hour after my drink and threw that away.
Always best to be on the safe side

If you have one drink whilst breastfeeding it was explained to me via a paediatrician that one drink in breast milk is equivalent to a drop in a very large ocean

Yep and you’ll both get a good night sleep lol​:slight_smile::champagne::rainbow:
