Which Health Shortcuts Are OK?
Having a Glass of Wine While You Are Breast-FeedingRisk Rating: 1
Go ahead and toast your new baby (in moderation). Both the La Leche League and the American Academy of Pediatrics have stated that it's fine for a breast-feeding mom to have an occasional glass of wine or beer. "Just be sure to watch your baby and see if it affects him," says Rachel Masch, M.D., associate director of the Division of Family Planning at the Beth Israel Medical Center, in New York City. If he seems extra fussy, you may want to stick to seltzer.
Also, contrary to popular belief, the alcohol doesn't get "trapped" in breast milk. It passes out of your system within two to three hours if you're drinking a glass of wine or beer; within 13 hours if you've had hard liquor. If you've inadvertently had a few too many, consider giving the baby a bottle until the liquor is out of your system.
