In brief: Yes, OK to drink

but caution is always recommended regarding drinking responsibly, especially if you will continue to be caretaker of your infant.
Unless on other medication, a healthy 120 pound woman can have 2 drinks and have alcohol free milk in 5 hours. See reference http://www.obfocus.com/calculators/alcoholinmilk.htm for more information.
