How fast?

Do things get into your breastmilk? Like caffeiene, alcohol, food, etc? How soon would it reach your supply?

Re: How fast?

im pretty sure how quick it hits your bloodstream is how fast it will get in your milk

I wanted to add that doesn't mean how MUCH it will get in your milk.

Like if you want to drink a beer drink it after you nurse.

Re: How fast?

i am pretty sure its something like 2 hours. and i think caffeine is very weak when its in the milk, not strong enough to affect the babies' behavior. not entirely sure about that one though, i feel like i read it somewhere, but can't remember it clearly. what did you drink?

Re: How fast?

It is generally safe to assume that in a couple of hours *it* will be in the BM in very minute amounts. Many people don't worry too much about a small amount of caffeine or alcohol but to be safest you can pump and dump.

I think if you google one of these sites, maybe you can get more info. on the specific beverage or medication you may have consumed. I don't have the time to get the proper links right now. Sorry.

nak Oh jeez, I didn't drink anything, I was just wondering, LOL. Just curious. Although I did have coffee earlier, but that's not why I asked, LOL.
LOL, Helen, I thought you were asking like I drank something bizarre. I was going to tell you I drank gasoline or something - just as a joke.
