Is breastfeeding and drinking alcohol okay or frowned upon in your eyes?

Keeping in mind that no amount of alcohol is safe for a baby to be exposed to, is breastfeeding while drinking not a big deal or a potential harm to the baby in your eyes?

    Sorry, but this is total scaremongering. I actually just looked through some medical journals and the common consensus is that occasional drinking while BFing not medically significant. Putting alcohol in a bottle is not even remotely the same.

    I agree, my doctor said it was fine, with no pump and dump, as long as I tried to have a drink right after feeding. Just a matter of moderation.
