If the alcohol still effects you, it will effect baby. Because it is in your blood stream, it goes into your milk. Therefore, there is no need to pump and dump(unless you are doing it to keep up with feedings) once it is no longer in your blood stream it is no longer in your milk.

A drink every now and then isn't going to hurt anything, as long as you are not drunk. They make strips to test your milk for alcohol, they are pricey. I've also seen if you are okay to drive you are ok to feed, i find this bad advice as many people don't know limitations.

You can eat sushi, you just cannot eat raw fish sushi in pregnancy for risk of food poisoning. Ok while nursing.

Breastmilk last, i think, 3 months in a regular freezer, 1 year in a deep freeze.
I thought it was 6 months in reg freezer?
