Consuming Wine While Breastfeeding


There have been many different responses to consuming wine while breastfeeding. I've heard it doesn't affect the child and I have also heard you should pump and dump. I am confused. I just want to know if you have one small glass of wine, how does it affect your baby while you're breastfeeding.


Thank you for your question.  Please see the above linked article on our blog, OnCloudMom, that addresses your questions.  It is important to note that every mom is different and will metabolize alcohol differently and it very much depends on the age of your baby whether they are under 3 months or older.
