Drinking while breastfeeding is the same as drinking while pregnant.  Your putting it in the baby's system

If u drink while breast feeding, pump the first batch of milk and dump it because it drinking affects your milk, but yes its safe to drink wine,

Im 33 wks and just had a 3oz glass of red wine. I wouldnt dare do beer or anything else. Drinkin while breastfeeding is the same. Ur going to pass it to the baby via breastmilk. I read online if u chose to have a drink pump and dump for 24 hrs b4 breastfeeding again

Wine is stronger than beer. But one small cup is okay only if you want to.

Ive never heard its ok to drink beer. But small glasses of red wine occasionally are ok. I still dont however just bc I feel its necessary. Now holidays breastfeeding or pregnant thankgiving and Christmas I have 1 3 oz glass of wine. Which my mil condones and says is fine and I didnt pump and dump for 3 oz. Not enough to hurt anything. And a lot of ppl midwives etc will tell you that a small amount of wine will also help with let down.And milk.production. though you may not feel effects its still enough to help and safe. My mil is a midwife btw.
