What does your physician say? What does baby's physician say?

Considering that everything that you ingest is transmitted to baby via your milk, I would think that its probably not a good idea.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

My boys were preemies so I always pumped and gave them breast milk in a bottle. My doctor always told me if I wanted to have a glass of wine I could but the next time I pumped to throw that down the drain. I would check with your doctor though.
