I'm not missing the humor, but still want to point out that women can drink a little while breastfeeding. It's not the same as drinking while pregnant:

"Since current research does not show that occasional use (1-2 drinks) of alcohol is harmful to the nursing baby, La Leche League continues to support the opinion that occasional use of alcohol in limited amounts is compatible with breastfeeding."

The alcohol industry fought back against the temperance movement by marketing booze as something to drink for your health, not for intoxication.  I wonder if it was as "wink wink" then as the current fight against cannabis prohibition via medical marijuana?
