I drank on avg. 4 beers/day (no more than 7) for 8 days straight over the holidays. How long should my wife and I wait before trying to have a baby?

In brief: 3 months

December badness=wait for march madness.
Binge drinking is toxic to sperm. To be safe, wait a few months before trying in earnest.

In brief: Not the issue

The issue should not be how long to wait as after several days the alcohol has essentially left your system and your liver has worked on repairing the damage.
The question should be should you work on not drinking that much as that is probably an excessive amount even though it is short in duration.
