    No of course you arn't sefish hun! I think after being pregnant for 9 months we deserve it !!!!

    I'd speak to your m/w and ask her about it x you might find it is ok to have a glass or two x

    If you want a night out then express a load so that the day after when the booze is in your milk your babys can have your expressed milk and you can just express your not so great milk to tip it away until your milks back to normal ;)

    Ok im going to sound like a really bad mother here but....I drink, i dont go out every weekend and get wasted, i will have the odd glass of wine, also if i do go out (iv been about about 4 times since charlie was born) I only have a few i think the most iv had is 6 halfs it sounds like alot but its only 3 pints and its only 6 units, my HV said its ok as long as you dont get "Bladderd" "all it will do is make him sleep a little bit more" which is true if i have any more than 4 drinks he sleeps most of the day, every woman in my family have drank and breast fed, i dont particullary watch what eat. i thinks its personal prefrance, If my health visitor doesnt have a problem with it then i dont :)

    Also my midwife told me it was ok to have no more than 4 units of alcholol a week while pregnant, again i had the odd glass of wine but never anymore...its all about what u feel is right

    A small amount of whatever you eat/drink does get through to your breast milk, I remember when I was breast feeding my first after having a glass of pure orange juice.. dear lord did I regret that after the nappies that followed! lmao

    I tried that. Omg I hate pumping! My boobs still got so engorged with milk they hurt. I think I need a better pump LOL. I am a wine drinker too occasionally. I don't mind giving it up. I want a taste here and there but don't bother.

    I read an NHS leaflet today that says you don't have to avoid alcohol, as long as you're not going crazy. Plus you can go back to eating soft cheeses etc. You should just not have a crap diet.
