Need your advice... Can drink DOM everyday while still breastfeeding? Cos my dear husband keep forcing me to drink everyday say good for health
Strictly no drinking of alcohol stuffs while bf as milk production may be impaired.
I have not taken any alcohol while breastfeeding for 18+ months. Without DOM, I am still as fit and healthy. Baby's health is most important.
Thanks mommies... Actually I also dont't like the taste finding out more so my husband won't say I finding excuses to dont't drink...
If your husband really insist that you take DOM, you can add DOM to soups. Make sure you boil it so that the alcohol is evaporated and the remaining stuff in DOM remains in the soup.
Alcohol can seep into your breastmilk and into your baby. Babies' livers are not developed enough to process alcohol.
For the soup, best is if you can drink it right after you breastfeed so that you can pass out at least some of the alcohol in your urine before your next feed.
But best is to steer clear of alcohol.
Why dont't you drink chicken essence instead?
I took DOM everyday when bf.. Only bf at least two hour after took DOM..
Refer to this table on percentage of alcohol retained after cooking:
Cooking with alcohol does it all evaporate?
You can drink Dom but provided you double boil it for an hour before drinking to remove all the alcohol content but yet still get all the goodness of it. Its a bit of a hassle to do that everyday but no choice.
I went to antenatal class at Kandang Kerbau Hospital the nurse say if you want to breastfeed it is better that you breastfeed your baby 1st before consume DOM as they have alchol. Hope this information helps.
