Can I have a glass of wine while breastfeeding and do I have to wait to feed my baby?

Hard to comment: There are arguments back and forth about the safety of alcohol consumption during breastfeeding there are some basic facts. Alcohol will pass through the breast milk and it lingers in the milk after it is made.Alcohol converts to byproducts that are toxic to the developing brain.There is no level of alcohol exposure that is considered safe to a developing infant. ...Read more

Can I have a glass of wine while breastfeeding? Baby is 3 months do I need to pump and dump if so how long after should I pump?

Probably ok: Everything you eat or drink can travel into your breast milk, so the term"Everything in moderation". A glass of wine should not have any ill affects, but the urge to drink more could have an effect on your baby and cause symptoms such as sleepiness, irritablity, and low blood sugar. if you elect to try some wine ,then not on an empty stomach as it will be more rapidly absorbed with higher levels ...Read more

There's mixed answers about drinking wine while breastfeeding. Would a glass of red wine 14% be ok 2oz if I drink at night while baby is sleep?

There's mixed answers about drinking wine while breastfeeding. Would a glass of red wine 14% be ok 2oz if I drink at night while baby is sleep?

Life is confusing: The effect of high dose exposure is well known and worrisome.Data on the low level exposure of infants to alcohol is difficult to come by because of problems with study design and population variables.

I can never recommend avoidable exposure ...Read more

How long after ativan (lorazepam) can I have one glass of wine?

Problem: It is really not about the timing, and i understand that the answer might sound extreme. First of all, you mention alprazolam, Clonazepam in your list of meds, but only ask about ativan (lorazepam). Your dr probably assumed that you would not use alcohol while on treatment with those 3 CNS depressants. We don t know when you will take or need your next ativan (lorazepam). Please ask your dr. See comment. ...Read more

I have one glass of wine a night, am I addicted?

I have one glass of wine a night, am I addicted?

No.: I wouldn't worry about one glass of wine a night (if that's all it is, and you don't have a history of alcoholism or substance abuse). If that glass of wine is causing substantial conflicts with your family, work, relationships, or the law, then you start getting into some shady territory. But for the majority of people, one glass of wine a night is fine. Everything in moderation. Cheers! ...Read more

I had one glass of wine about an hour ago, is it safe for me to take a benedryl?

Likely safe: But Benadryl (diphenhydramine) will add to the drowsiness effect to any alcohol you might have consumed. So I would caution against operating anything which requires alertness (driving etc) after this combination. ...Read more
