Handling these cases before, I believe they have determined a time period when a fetus is more susceptible to FAS (and, like everything else if I remember correctly, it is in the ~6-10 weeks range). Plus, it seems to be the total number of drinks over pregnancy and not necessarily the amount in one time setting. Alcohol Risk to Fetus Is Highest at End of 1st Trimester | Fetal Alcohol Syndrome & Drinking During Pregnancy | LiveScience

Like I said before, if a little bit of dayquil can do it, all our kids would have FAS b\c fruit juices have .1% of alcohol in it and, I don't know about you, but I drink juice everyday.

Agreed that the only way to avoid it is not to have a single drink, but I don't think we need to all believe our kids will have FAS.
