I’m a fan of wine. In fact, I’m pretty sure that wine is one of the main reasons I never walked out on my children and boarded a plane to the Bahamas during their early years.
But during my pregnancies I consumed way more ice cream than Chardonnay. I took my doctor’s advice: One or two glasses a week is just fine. (I decided it would be much more enjoyable to drink those one or two glasses at home than while at a wedding or a restaurant where all those judgy judgers would be judging me.)Now this is making headlines. It’s hard, as my doctor told me, to say that a little alcohol during pregnancy is okay, since some people will take it a step further.
