    Re: Are you able to drink dom during breastfeeding?

    Personally, I believe that everything in moderation is fine. After all, baby will learn different tastes through your breastmilk (it changes in taste depending on what you've been eating!)

    If you are worried about the alcohol content, some moms drink immediately after a feed so as to maximise the time taken between feeds. If you are planning to use it during your confinement, consider adding it to soups. If you bring the soup to a boil after adding the DOM, the alcohol content will evaporate. That way you still get the goodness while getting rid of the alcohol. That's what we did when making herbal soups and they tasted really yummy.

    Aby... if dont't breastfeed a newborn at night... how can? I'm assuming that Vone wants to do exclusive breastfeeding with no supplementation. A little alcohol really won't kill, I think... just dont't drink a whole litre! Most of us take a tiny little cup right?

    As for breast shells.. never used them. Didn't like that. Used breastpads/towels. Keep a stack of them next to your nursing station for use on baby or yourself! Used to sleep on a towel too... in case of leaks at night. Easier than changing bedsheets so often.

    I used breast shells with holes for air circulation.. I dont't prefer breast pads as I leaked alot and very embarassed when out with the whole blouse stained badly.. The pads pressed unto the nipples and if leaked badly, it's so wet!! During the 1st one, I suffered from blocked ducts while the 2nd one no such problem at all thus I really prefer breast shells to pads.. The shells will catch little milk thus no wastage at all..

    Intented to breastfeed at night too but my confinement lady requested me to rest totally while she feed my 2nd one FM.. Well, it's my personal choice to listen to her advise.. I drink a normal cup of DOM every night before bed.. Finished 6 bottles of DOM..

    Jopeck's advise of drinking right after a feed or cooking it is good..

    Yes, alittle bit of DOM is ok, but not one big cup ..

    I suppose Vone wants to drink abit of DOM to "warm" up her body system as it's believed that after pregnancy, body is "cool".. just like jo mention, drink immediately after nursing.

    During my confinement, DOM was added to cooked food as I do not like to drink DOM direct, prefer yomeishu.

    Yup ~ Suddenly i got like 6 bottles of dom appearing out of nowhere >_<

    And mother in law alrdy used 1 bottle to make soup and food.

    But she insist i take a small cup of it before i sleep at nite. But im worried if it'll affect the breastmilk if im feeding him at nite. So i still am able to bf him after drinking alittle right?

    Like what jopeck advise, drink right after you finish bf baby.. Thus there's always an interval after.. Cheers!!!

    you really good mommy , knows how to take care of yourself despite the yurky taste of DOM..

    Re: Are you able to drink dom during breastfeeding?

    you can drink dom / alcohol... but for the next 2hrs+ from that drinking, dont't b'feed / pump.
    as there will be lil' traces of alcohol that will pass thru' b'milk.
    the lapse of 2hrs+ will allow the alcohol to pass thru milk production but it doesn't stay in it... so it's fine.
    but note alcohol causes dehydration to your body, so best to drink lots of water before and after a drink.
    plan in such away, at night after baby's last feed (before your bedtime) take 1shot of dom and go to bed... thereafter, guided time usually 2~2.5hrs baby would get up for a feed, drink a glass of warm water before feed and 1 more glass after feed.

    Vone, congratulations on your new baby! i noticed i posted a congratulatory msg in another thread a week back

    yah i believe the key is everything in moderation and you would do fine. i personally avoid alcohol. perhaps drinking more water will also help afetr dom consumption.

    Agree. If you really have to drink straight from a cup, and you're worried about the alcohol content, take it after expressing or nursing.

    hi vone,

    A shot of DOM before you go to bed, is fine. you can feel the different the next day you wake up. you can ask yr mother in law to boil half bottle of martell with a chicken drumstick, its very good for you.
    Try it once a week.

    Congrats.
