just one thought tho - as expressing isn't necessarily a reliable method of measuring milk production, would the same effects necessarily be seen if a woman was feeding a baby after alcohol as if she was expressing?
Hmmm... I am not sure about this study. When I expressed regularly I got various times for letdown and various amounts for a variety of reasons. Observing feeding would have been a better way to do it - agree mummytosteven.
Alcohol is not an issue really unless it is crateloads!
hmm. have always drunk plenty of alcohol and have a good milk supply - I suggest eating chocolate while drinking alcohol - as chocolate increases the supply you won't need to worry about alcohol reducing it
(unsurprisingly I don't lose weight breastfeeding ...)
