Herbal tea: It's an organic caffeine free herbal tea. Some mother's swear by it, that it increases their milk supply. BUT for maximal effect, you need to have at least 3 cups a day. It also supposedly works in 72 hours, so you may be rushing things a bit. I have no strong feelings about this tea one way or another. I will tell you that a lot of moms thought it tasted horrible and used tons of honey. ...Read more

Alcohol & nursing: I'm sorry you know if you're nursing you should not drink or smoke, but for now pump your breast for today & dicard the milk, feed the baby formula, keep the baby hydrated, you also need to drink a lot of water to help flush the alcohol out of your body.
