beer and breastfeeding

If someone has three beers from 11:30-3 am, then breastfeeds at 7 am is it going to affect the baby? Is there going to be alcohol in the milk? And if so, is it going to harm the baby in any way, if it is a one time occurance?

3 beers in a 3.5 hour time frame and then no alcohol for 4 hours before a feeding? 'Probably' not. It depends on how the person's body metabolizes the alcohol. Generally speaking... if you don't feel it the baby won't either.

That's all from what I've 'heard' though as I don't drink.

I think since it's a one time occurrence it should be alright. How I would drink while breast feeding is have one drink last about 3 hours.
