I think this happens to a lot of people, and most babies are born fine without FAS.

It all depends on the stage of development your baby was at at the time you had the alcohold, and there is no safe limit of alcohol, and whether it was beer, wine or neat whiskey doesn''t make any difference either.

There is a far bigger chance that everything is fine.
There are many, many women who this happen to and everythign is just fine with their babies.
