I am sure they meant 2.5 o/oo not o/o so 0.25%
My grandma used to tell the story how she drank celebrating her first son's birth and then breastfed him and then he slept for 48 hours...I always thought she exaggerated...
I would, and I have, breastfed my 7 month old after having "a" drink.....but that's 1 drink, and it's not immediately after consuming it.
It also makes you wonder if it is a once only thing. I mean, if a motheer usually does not drink, it is probably because she is aware of the dangers, and is taking precautions. Which makes it seem strange that she would then have such a high level of alcohol n her sytem. If she drank that much with a small baby, is it more likely that she is a habitual heavy drinker? I know this is surmising.
Well, to answer your question, yes, I would and have BF after a drink.
However, I contend that this story is BS.
Ok, here are some rough calculations.
I'm not usually on this board but I read this and wanted to post. Are they sure the baby died from alcohol? Maybe she was breastfeeding and suffocated the baby or passed out on top of him/her?? I agree it doesn't make sense that the baby would get enough alcohol in ONE feeding to cause death. Or possibly she passed out and the baby choked on the milk because she wasn't paying attention. There's unfortunately a lot of things that could of happened. That poor baby, its horrible!
