Alcohol, nicotine, and medicines reach the baby through breast milk. It takes about two to three hours before alcohol is completely out of your blood, according to the La Leche League website. To prevent the baby from drinking alcohol, it is better for the mother to drink a glass of alcohol immediately after breastfeeding. Another tip they give is that the expressed milk is in stock. This way the baby is still able to drink, if the alcohol has not been removed from the mother’s blood.
Not every mother breastfeeds. Some women choose to bottle-feed. These new mothers can drink a glass of wine right after delivery. The latest figures from the national government show that nearly 70 percent of mothers start breastfeeding. After a month this percentage is only about 47 percent.
