Default How long for alcohol to leave BM?

Hi everyone and a Happy New Year!

I celebrated last night with a few too many, and I was wondering how long
the alcohol will stay in my breastmilk.
I gave my DD a bottle last night but put her on the breast this morning.
DH wants me to pump and dump for 3 days but I think this is too long.

TIA.
:-)

Ridiculous
There's no need at all to pump and dump, nor to give a bottle.
If you are too drunk to drive (here anyhow) your BA level is 0.08% which
will be the alcohol level of your breastmilk.
For comparison, gripe water with alcohol is 3% alcohol.
Alcohol stays in your breast milk as long as it stays in your blood.
Breast fed babies whose mothers have consumed alcohol may nurse more
frequently but for shorter periods of time.

Happy New Year!

Do not pump and dump. When they give you those
warnings about alcohol, they're talking about
people who drink every day and that gets into
the baby. Once in a great while is not a big
deal, especially since the amount that gets into
the milk is very low.

I've had a couple of glasses of wine at Halloween
and Thanksgiving. Pillbug was never even sleepier
than usual; it seemed like there was no effect!

3 days, no way! I looked up what damage the odd drink or 3 does to
the baby and the only thing it affects (that I could find out about)
is motor co-ordination in a young baby and that levels out when they
get older. This was about light to moderate drinking though, not
getting raddled every day :-)

Um, here in NSW we are legally too drunk to drive at 0.05% -- is yours 0.1%?


Varies from state to state. Most are either .1% or .08. I don't know of any
states where it's ,05%. (However, the main point of the figure was to explain
that, even if mom is solidly plastered, the milk is still going to contain only
a fraction of the amount of alcohol that would be found in any actual alcoholic
beverage, and so would not do any harm to the baby.)

Used to be 0.08 here in Denmark. I believe it's 0.05% now.

And even that study looked at daily alcohol use by the mother (2-3 drinks a
day, every day), NOT occassional use, even occassional heavy indulgence.

This made me smile, since I remember there being some point made about
it applying to cyclists as well as motorists. In my student days,
many a cyclist weaved back from the city centre extremely drunk!
