Had a lovely night out last night with mum chums and drank probably just over half a bottle of wine, between 8.30 and 11. Got home and expressed 120ml. Is this alright for the little one? Dont want to have a pissed up baby! X

Yes - the alcohol transfer to milk is very little. I wouldn't do this regularly (I'm sure you don't) but as a one-off it's fine.

I went out for a drink (or quite a lot) last saturday night. Got in at 3 and expressed into the sink for comfort a few times and waited 24 hours to actually let him feed from me. He still had bad stomach the next day!
I wouldn't risk it personally! For the sake of one expressed feed!

Quite honestly, hiss42, for there have been enough alcohol in your system after 12 hours to have upset your baby's stomach you must have REALLY been going for it grin. I would be far more inclined to think that the two were unrelated, TBH.

Nah, you need to ingest a hell of a lot of booze for it to transfer to milk hours later. I really doubt an occasional and moderate drinker need worry. Source - my lovely midwife.

Hiss24 - It is extremely unlikely any residual alcohol after 24 hours (you'd have to drunk over 2 bottles of wine for there to still be booze in your system then!) upset your baby's stomach - surely a coincidence.
