Does anyone know the "pump & dump" rule?
November 17, 2012 at 4:38 PM
So, my dd is 8.5 months old & I'm still EPing. I had 1 draft beer & 1 Bahama mama (it has rum) last night. I didn't pump until about 3.5-4 hrs after consumption. Would I need to dump it or is it safe to give to dd?

    If you weren't drunk/buzzed when you pumped that milk, then it is safe. :)

    As long as you wern't still feeling the effects of the alcohol when you pumped then it's fine for baby.  If your safe to drive your safe to nurse.

    Pump and dump is an outdated rule. It's one hour wait for every drink after your second one, or if you're not tipsy, it isn't in your milk.
