One sip ?: Although studies many years ago suggested that beer might promote milk flow, later studies have shown that ethanol is a potent inhibitor of prolactin hormone, the hormone that stimulates milk flow. A simple sip is probably never going to hurt baby, but why bother.

Seems very unnatural: Not a natural thing to do.

An occasional Tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain is generally ok, but don't take anything else. Eat healthy. ...Read more

Otherwise, unless physically or emotionally unable to, breastfeeding should be continued despite minor illness. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
