Is it safe for breast feeding mums to drink alcohol?

Of course, whether a breast-feeding mum decides to drink alcohol or not is up to her. The La Leche League’s advice states that

“When a breastfeeding mother drinks occasionally and limits her consumption to one drink, the amount of alcohol her baby receives has not been proven to be harmful. While we constantly review research, present studies indicate that although significant amounts of alcohol are secreted into breastmilk it is not considered harmful to the infant if the amount and duration are limited. The absolute amount of alcohol transferred into milk is generally low.”

I would like to buy a hamper for my friend/sister/partner/colleague but she hasn’t had the baby yet, what should I do?

There are 3 options. You can either

  1. Wait until she has had the baby and order then. Orders are usually sent out within 2 working days.
  2. Order the hamper now, but during the order process you can tell me it is not for immediate delivery (you will be prompted to do this via a question). You can let me know the estimated delivery date, but email once this has happened so I know when to send out the order
  3. As well as option 2 I can also send a nice Mum’s Back postcard to the lady in question, letting her know that a Mum’s Back hamper will be hers after the birth of her baby. This option is available if you want her to know you have thought of her before the birth of the baby.
