Do you drink and feed?

SnuffleGruntSnorter Fri 12-Feb-16 21:55:19

Yes but I don't drink heavily

figginz Fri 12-Feb-16 21:59:48

Yes I did

Yes I'd have a couple of glasses of wine with a meal and then give a feed once I got home. But only once a month maybe. Nothing major. The amount of alcohol in breastmilk is really minuscule; you'd be unfit to care for a child well before the alcohol level in the milk got high enough to affect your baby.

Yes. Not enough to get drunk (well, maybe once or twice) but a couple of glasses of wine.

Yes, not sure how I'd get through this parenting malarkey without wine. blush

Oh and I did my research and made an educated decision about it. wine

I did. I didn't drink more than a glass until they were about three months old but then I had two and sometimes three! Small glasses, I hasten to add.

Yes, I have a tin of gin on the go at the moment. Can't drink too much though because at 17 months she still doesn't sleep well.

Effiethemonster Fri 12-Feb-16 22:26:51

Oh yeah I don't drink much but not cos I'm worried about the breastmilk, she just doesn't sleep so I'm constantly on edge grin
