Updated Recommendations on Alcohol Consumption While Breastfeeding

New, updated information has come out regarding alcohol consumption while breastfeeding:

"Any long-term consequences for the children of alcohol-abusing mothers are yet unknown, but occasional drinking while breastfeeding has not been convincingly shown to adversely affect nursing infants. In conclusion, special recommendations aimed at lactating women are not warranted. Instead, lactating women should simply follow standard recommendations on alcohol consumption."
