Breastfeeding 🤱🏼 mamas don’t need to fret this New Years on pumping and dumping. Reasonable alcohol intake should actually not be discouraged at all. There is very little alcohol that comes out in the milk. If you’re a breastfeeding mother, you can take some alcohol and continue breastfeeding as normal. Prohibiting alcohol is another way we make life unnecessarily restrictive for nursing and you don’t have to! La Leche League recommends against pumping and dumping because it doesn’t work. You will simply make new milk that has no alcohol in it. Once the alcohol is cleared from your blood stream, it also clears from any milk that was already in your breasts.
So raise your glasses to a New Year of motherhood and enjoy the celebration !! 🍾 🥂 🎉
