Day 70 - Drink Up

Today's Tip - Pump out your breast milk if you have more than one alcoholic drink per two hours

Most women look forward to being able to unwind with a glass of wine or go out partying with the girls after they've given birth. But if you're breastfeeding, and you don't allow your body to get rid of the alcohol, it can be harmful for your baby. One generally won't harm him, but don't do it too often without pumping out your supply.

Give your body two hours to get rid of a drink (12 oz beer, 1 oz liquor). So if you have three drinks, pump out your supply for up to six hours.
