What difference does it make what it will or won't do to him since you already done it? I have no idea what that drink is or how much alcohol is in it, but.... FIVE drinks and then you breastfed? That seems.... excessive...

While I don't drink alcohol at all I do know that some women drink and breastfeed and I 'believe' the general rule is safe enough to drive, safe enough to nurse... so... for an average person I 'think' that is about one drink per hour... and wait an extra hour before a feed. Someone with actual experience and knowledge on this topic might be able to give a different input.
