if you choose to consume alcohol, you would probably want to consult your OB or lactation consultant in regards to how much is safe. There are many different opinions on this out there, and it is a hot topic. Personally, I was told the occasional drink is safe. I had asked my ped, OB and LC. If you are actually going out and drinking, you do have the option of giving the baby pumped milk, or some moms choose to do occasional bottles of formula.
As TBH mentioned, this is a very hot-button issue. However, there are safer ways to imbibe, just make sure you ask your OB, the baby's pediatrician, and a lactation consultant just to get clear parameters. If choose to do so, I recommend pumping and dumping in an effort to keep your production on schedule. If I missed even one feeding for any reason, it took me a day or two to get my supply back on track.
