    Thought someone might know on here. Im going to a hen party on saturday night and wouldnt mind a few drinks and let my hair down. Im not sure how much is ok to drink and if i do drink what to do. Do i express some milk or something if its not possible for me to drink then its tough after all Ellie comes first (would be nice though).

    they gave me a pamphlet at the hospital saying how much time you have to wait to BF again after so much alcohol and according to your weight... I'll try and find it for you! Sooo many pamphlets :dohh:

    basically, it takes your body one hour to get rid of one unit of alcohol. So 2 pints would take your body 4 hours to get rid of.
