I wouldn't get drunk, but I don't think a little wine could really hurt. It's what people drank before we had sanitized water, and humanity seemed to make it through!

Re: Wine during pregnancy?

I don't like wine or beer, so I don't drink those at all. I abstain from all alcohol because somehow, I don't think shots and a margarita are a good idea

Re: Wine during pregnancy?

My mom lived in Scotland in the early 80s and the doc recommended a glass of beer a day. We turned out fine

None for me during pregnancy... I'll have a drink or two right after a nursing session and that's about it.

Re: Wine during pregnancy?

I don't drink during pregnancy, and I don't like wine I did occasionally having a drink after I nursed my lo to sleep when he was sleeping through the night. I was pretty sure after 6-8 hours there would not still be any alcohol in the breastmilk!

Re: Wine during pregnancy?

I drank sometimes in both pregnancies. Generally after the first trimester and never more than a glass of wine or beer.
I'm fairly certain that there are NO proven risks to drinking moderately during pregnancy. honestly I think the insane amount of water that is recommended is probably worse than a glass of wine, especially because the water around here has flouride in it. (ducks and runs)

You can surely drink and nurse. If you can drive, you can nurse. More research has happened and it okay. It's no longer something need to fear. Get tipsy? No nursing. Have a glass of wine? Nursing is fine.

I'll have an occasional drink during he last trimester. Doesn't matter what kind. Wine, beer or mixed drinks. Although mixed drinks I only have when out. Usually beer or wine.

I have not had anything to drink with either pregnancy but have been seriously considering an ounce of Bailey's in 8 oz of milk.
