I had my first night out last night since DD was born 8 Weeks ago and as she is EBF i managed to express 3x 5oz bottles for her do there was plenty.
I had looked into units and how long it takes to burn off and read that it was an hour so had it all worked out that i chips have a maximum of 12 units. I ended up having 10ish (probably more like 8 tbh) and now see its 2 hours per unit!
DD has only taken 1 bottle but she's not keen on them so whilst there is 10oz left i would rather feed her, plus I've been slightly about her having the bottle anyway.
My last drink was at 1am so would it be really bad to feed her when she wakes?
Oh and how long does defrosted milk last in the fridge?
I frequently BF the next morning or even during the night and DD is fine. She does often get grumpy though so don't know if it alters the taste. Also my 'nights out' tend to be 'nights in' with DH and a bottle of wine (hard to get out with 3 DCs)
I don't think you were wrong - the body metabolises 1 unit per hour and it's fine to have a few in your system and bf.
I've had one big boozy night while bf (we're talking absolutely steaming!) and DS had ebm until the freezer supply ran out the next day. But normally, if I've had a few glasses of wine or a few beers I would just feed him when he wakes up.
