There is no reason to pump and dump if you are educated about breastfeeding at all. Alcohol appears in breastmilk in the same consentration as in the blood and metabolizes out at the same rate. So depending on how often your baby nurses, you can have a glass of wine or a beer as long as you allow enough time for it to metabolize out. That's not to say one should drink heavily than spray breasmilk at anyone!The idea of pushing mothers into breastfeeding because it's healthier isn't all it's cracked up to be. I know lots of breastfeeding moms who drink and feed.
