This is controversial. It metabolizes out of your milk at the same rate as your blood. It takes a small baby 2x as long to metabolize it as an older baby, but very little is supposed to cross over.

I've never done it until after dc was on a predictable nursing schedule with at least 3 hours in between sessions. I have 1 drink (beer or wine) right after they nurse before bed for the night. I'm too scared to do it otherwise, but I know other women have done it differently/sooner and been fine.
