I am slowly creeping up to two small glasses a night...DD is five weeks. With DS I did similar he's fine if a little cheeky

Am I a bad human being?

Okay I've just checked - it's more like one and a quarter small glasses...for now!

www.drinkaware.co.uk/check-the-facts/what-is-alcohol/types-of-alcohol/wine for info on safe limits for yourself.

Drinking every night = not good.

Your breastmilk will have minimal alcohol - check out the guidance here www.breastfeedingnetwork.org.uk. They have a factsheet on it.

Thank you! That's really helpful. I'm going to keep it to just under a glass after reading that info.

That is a lot of wine when you have such a young one. I looked at the guidance and only started drinking again at 3 months, even then just one small glass after bedtime.

Thanks Tatty. I'm going to keep it to a small glass/ just under. I just look forward to it so much!
