In brief: Don't drink
Long answer is also short.
It is not a good idea to drink alcohol while breastfeeding. Alcohol will find its way into breast milk!

In brief: A little can be ok
Wait 4 hours after drinking each glass of wine before you feed your baby or pump milk that you are saving.
There are test strips available in most stores that test for alcohol in your milk. These can tell you if the milk is safe to give baby. Never sleep in the same bed as baby if you have had alcohol.
