Alcohol and breastfeeding

The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) recommends that, for women who are breastfeeding, not drinking alcohol is safest for their baby. The concentration of alcohol in a breastfeeding woman’s breastmilk is the same as the concentration in her blood. Alcohol will be present in a woman’s breastmilk 30–60 minutes after she starts drinking.
