It does, but wait an hour and breastfeeding is ok. Actually, alcohol (beer) used to be used to help bring in the milk in nursing mothers. I think that it relaxes the muscles or maybe something in the hops??? Anyhow, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! Have a great day!
Happy b-day!! I know (!) how you feel but I wouldn't drink and breastfeed your baby. Enjoy your bday. Maybe have a virgin drink for now???
No, I would not advise drinking at all this early. Your baby is way too young to cope with the lingering alcohol in your milk, they cannot even process caffeine this early, let alone alcohol.
Find an alternative, maybe a sparkling juice or something of the like. Perhaps make a margarita minus the liquor and pretend ; )
Virgin? What does this strange word mean, "virgin"?
And FYI, no one advocates drinking and nursing anymore. In the rare time you do find someone, I suggest running far and fast. While it may relax you, you are then running the risk of passing this along to your baby. not everyone metabolizes alcohol at the same rate, so you may wait an hour and you baby may be getting it anyway.
Not worth it IMO. I have nursed three kids and have NEVER had a professional advise me to drink at all while nursing.
k... didn't know if one drink would hurt or not... never mind
Uh-oh, we've confused peek.
Hmmm, let's see. "VIRGIN" means no booze in it. You know, that stuff that makes you get naked and dance on the table? I know you have ahard time grasping it as it has been years since you have experienced anything virgin ; )
WHAT???????????? What's the point, then?
I've been a virgin plenty of times, btw. Guys will believe anything.
Prob will just enjoy an ice cream cake :)
PS: I may ask this later but I only lost 11 lbs since delivery... and 7.7 of that was her alone... I thought with all the fluid and placenta and shrinking of the uterus it would be more. Am I being crazy? lol?
Again, I am going to guess these men have not partaken in anything virgin for a while either if they believe that load of c-r-a-p ; )
I've gained 50 pounds since I last gave birth. I think I gained your 11 pounds since Thursday.
Hey I'm actually a nurse in a maternity unit and we tell mom's it's fine to have 1 drink, just breastfeed before you have it, then wait at least an hour before breastfeeing again. In an hour, one standard drink will be out of your system and not in the breastmilk. It's really ok.
