I feel silly asking this question! I swear I am a good and responsible mom.
About once a week, I have a glass of wine in the evening. I don't pump and dump or delay nursing, I'm quite confident that my daughter can metabolise the tiny bit of alcohol she might get from that one drink.
The thing is, I like wine, but I love good scotch. I was a scotch drinker before I got pregnant and haven't had any since. We have a couple of very nice bottles in the house, and some evenings I'd really love to have a little.
So the question is, is there a difference between wine and hard liquor as far as breastfeeding goes? Would half a shot of scotch make it into my breastmilk any more than one glass of wine?
She's nearly 8 months old, and just over 25lbs, if that makes a difference. She nurses every 2 hours or so.
