    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.

    ETA: and this http://www.kellymom....le/alcohol.html

    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 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

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

              i can't drink blush wine for some reason... It gives me awful headaches.. and hangovers; the worse. Red wine is my favorite when it comes to wine. I love Shiraz & Pinot Noir. YUM
