I dont think i will be home until 4am, how long would you leave it before putting baby back on the boob?!?! i know it depends on volume of alcohol, I should think i will have a fair few glasses of wine.....

The NCT breastfeeding line 0870 444 8708 (I could have sworn there was a new number) will have the answer. I think it's when you feel sober you can assume the alcohol has left your body but better ask someone qualified.

Have a great time!

i would feed regardless, unless dreadfully baby-dropping drunk.

As long as not wrecked, it will be fine. Never concerned me. I drank as normal.

I think (or how I judge it anyway) is if you are beyond slightly merry, wait until you have sobered up. If you have a heavy night i'd wait until middayish I guess, but I don't think you'd drink that much.

I just fed as nornmal, never so drunk that I couldn't walk though HE HEgrin
