i read somewhere that "pump and dump" is a myth because whatever your body alcohol level is at the time, that's the alcoholic content of your milk.
Yep. If you pump and dump, all you're doing is throwing away milk. It doesn't cause the alcohol to be metabolized any quicker, or lower the alcohol content of the milk that is being produced. The only reason to pump and dump is if you have to wait to nurse/store pumped milk due to excessive alcohol consumption and don't want to let yourself become engorged in the meantime.
