pump and dump?

Ok so I have a long over due girls night out coming up. If I have a couple beers...when would it be safe to nurse again? I know they sell test strips but I wanted a general idea of how long it takes to pass thru the milk or of its even needed with only having two beers?

If your not buzzed you can nurse. If you can drive you can nurse. No need to pump and dump. It is filtered in and out of your milk constantly. It doesn't stay in your milk. Just nurse before you leave and then your fine to nurse ( unless your drunk) when you get home. Cheers!! Happy girls night out!!

I might be wrong but I think if the alcohol is in your bloodstream it will be in your milk. So as long as the alcohol is out of your system you're fine.

Re: pump and dump?

SOmetimes people think they need to pump and dump to get the milk out of their system faster. It is in your blood, and milk is made from your blood, so you just have to wait it out, pumping isn't going to get it out any faster.

And yes, easiest thing to remember, if you can drive, you can nurse your baby.

Many recommend a beer while nursing to help supply and let down, so I am sure 2 beers will not be an issue. I have had a couple drinks while nursing. I just make sure to not get buzzed, just enough to enjoy the taste.
