Breastfeeding and Alcohol

Q – My baby is 7 weeks old and I am exclusively breastfeeding and very happy doing it. I am, though, really missing a glass of wine or two…not like I need to drink a lot but I feel very conflicted about it while I’m nursing. How much is ok to drink, how long do I have to wait before feeding my baby, and how long does it take for the alcohol to actually leave my body?

Drinking Alcohol and Breastfeeding

baby, FAM, health By February 19, 2007 1 Comment

Women are often warned to not consume alcohol during pregnancy, as ample evidence has shown that it poses a severe and avoidable risk to her unborn baby. The risks of drinking and breastfeeding are not as well defined. (And let’s face it.  You were so good for 9 months.  How long before you can really enjoy the Veuve?)  Breastfeeding mothers receive conflicting advice about whether alcohol and breastfeeding can have an effect on their baby, which often leaves mothers feeling like they have more questions than answers. So, what information should a mother who is considering drinking while breastfeeding know? Instead of being all judgy, we’ve outlined the prevalent research and you can make your own informed decision.

Sexy and pregnant: Hot mamas-to-be

FAM, pregnancy By July 25, 2006 Tags: , , , , , No Comments

Sexy and pregnant — once seemingly an oxymoron — are smouldering together, with the backlash against the uninviting muumuu (a.k.a. the baby bivouac or tent shirt) at full speed.

Sex and the City may be gone, but you have only to recall how Patricia Field dressed Sarah Jessica Parker when she was pregnant…
