I haven't had a drink in over a year and since I'm exclusively BFing, I haven't bothered to figure out how long alcohol stays in BM and all that. Even though some days I'd kill for a margarita, I guess I'm too lazy to pump and dump. LOL
The other day, I was at a happy hour at someone's house for my mom's group. Since I'm nursing, I just had lemonade.
One mom who has a 3 yo DD and just had a baby with a heart condition 3 weeks ago (and is exclusively BFing AFAIK) was sitting next to me and kept commenting that she hoped her baby would sleep the whole time so she could have a beer. Once she nursed the baby and put him back in his car seat, she cracked open a beer and began drinking. Of course the baby woke up and wanted to eat again so she picked him up and began nursing him and when he was done, proceeded to finish her beer!! This totally shocked me but I could be mistaken how long it takes alcohol to reach BM.
Am I just naive or is this normal??
