Re: Drinking while breastfeeding?

I only drink when my babies are at an age where they are consistently sleeping through the night. Unfortunately for me, my third and most recent child decided to start doing that when she was a year old so I went a long time without a relaxing glass of wine at the end of a hectic day. Honestly though, it was no big deal to not drink.

As far as being pregnant and drinking- I have never done it and would never do it. Seems a little selfish to me for a pregnant woman to want to drink- yes, it is my body but I chose to make it into a human incubator for 9 months so the least I could do would be to not purposefully consume anything toxic to my baby. I also quit smoking the minute I found out I was pregnant with my first child.
SAHM to three wonderful monsters: Tyler 6, Alli 4 and Jilly Billy 2. And all I have to say is thank God for wine!
