Re: Wine and breastfeeding?

My understanding is that there is no point to pumping and dumping apart from stimulating let-down for your supply. That blood and milk alcohol levels are about the same, so letting time pass is the best way to keep pumped milk safe. That, and not drinking much or at all to begin with.

And we actually do know how alcohol can affect LOs. We don't like it, so we try to keep exposure to a minimum. Fortunately, mothers' bodies do a pretty good job of filtering if we don't overwhelm them by, say, chugging.

Again, you just gotta find what the best balance is for yourself and your family. That means looking at facts -and- knowing yourself. GL!
