  • Feed Safe

    Apps

    Can I have an occasional drink while I'm breastfeeding? Should I 'pump and dump'? How does alcohol affect breastmilk? How long should I wait after having a drink, before breastfeeding?

    New Zealand recommendations say that the safest option is to not drink while breastfeeding. If you do want to drink while breastfeeding it is recommended that you avoid doing so until your baby is one month old. After this time, mothers may wish to enjoy a drink with a meal, when out with friends, or on a special occasion. Feed Safe includes a handy standard drinks guide, to help you understand how much alcohol is in a range of common drinks. Feed Safe also contains local contact details for breastfeeding information and support services.

    FREE app for iOS and android devices which contains information on breastfeeding and alcohol, to help you make an informed choice. 

    Download from Google Play or the iOS App store appstore.com/feedsafenz. For more information on Breastfeeding Support across Otago & Southland visit www.breastfeedingsos.co.nz.
