When my wife was pregnant with our youngest, she forwarded an article to me that told how stouts can provide essential nutrients to lactating women. If I remember right, they were recommending that only about half a glass be drunk at a time, and that very soon after the baby finished nursing so the mother’s body had time to flush the alcohol out before the next feeding. Not sure if there was any real science backing it up, but it made my wife happy to have the keg available.
Good info! I’m not planning on breast feeding but it is good news for my friends who might be. I will be sure to pass it on.
