Question: Can breastfeeding moms consume alcoholic beverages?
Answer: Yes, it is ok for a breastfeeding mother to have an occasional alcoholic beverage. However, frequent or excessive amounts of alcohol should be avoided. A good rule is; if you are feeling the effects of the alcohol (feeling a buzz or intoxicated) then you should avoid breastfeeding until the effects wear off. Once the effects have worn-off, it is safe to breastfeed.
