Yup. You will have a drunk baby. You can certainly wait until the alcohol is out of your system. Pumping and dumping is quite frankly a waste, because if you consumed 5 beers or whatever, and you pump and dump...your boobs will just fill right back up with alcohol filled milk. You need to just wait it out until it leaves your system, and the milk will be clear for him to drink. And yes, 1 drink per hour is what it takes to leave your blood stream and milk supply. So if you drink, and immediately pump and dump, the new milk will have it too. Like I said, just gotta wait until it leaves your system, then you can breastfeed.

Your baby would get drunk. Wait until the alcohol is out of your system before you feed him.

Don't do it. You'll have to pump and dump. It takes 1 hour for 1 beer to filter through your system.
