Just 2 things I found online.

Dr. Jack Newman, member of the LLLI Health Advisory Council, says this in his handout "More Breastfeeding Myths":
Reasonable alcohol intake should not be discouraged at all. As is the case with most drugs, very little alcohol comes out in the milk. The mother can take some alcohol and continue breastfeeding as she normally does. Prohibiting alcohol is another way we make life unnecessarily restrictive for nursing mothers.

Thomas W. Hale, R.Ph. Ph.D., member of the LLLI Health Advisory Council, says this in his book Medications and Mothers' Milk (11th ed.):
Adult metabolism of alcohol is approximately 1 oz in 3 hours, so that mothers who ingest alcohol in moderate amounts can generally return to breastfeeding as soon as they feel neurologically normal.

I am looking for more now.

In otherwords 1 to 2 drinks is fine, but have them right after you feed and don't feed again for 2 to 3 hours. So if you have a drink or 2 when he goes down and night and he sleeps for 3 or more hours, there is no harm at all. I have only have a beer a few times, but I always do it when she is down for the night, this way I know I have till at least 4 AM before I need to feed her again.

and dang it all i forgot most of the liquor stores in our state are closed on "holidays" which-so not cool-includes today. i'd have to drive like 40 min out of my way and wait in a 1 hour line if i took off right now, since it closes at 2pm today sad.gif shite!

 

oh well, i've got a bottle of kahlua especial that i can drink with milk, but i'd rather add vodka and coke to that! my all time fave. hopefully SIL will have some vodka at her house, since all we have besides the kahlua at our house is tequila left over from the wedding, YUCK!

My drink of choice for New Year's Eve (at least the last few years) has been vodka and Monster or vodka and Gatorade. My DH and I usually go out camping and ride our toys the New Year's week, so Gatorade and Monster is what we have readily available and it tastes gooood!

 

However, since I'm preggo this year, I will be stuck in my RV unable to ride this trip and not drinking a darn thing but water shots.gif

 

Have plenty of drinks for me ladies and be safe tonight!

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
