Beyoncé has whipped up a bit of a storm this weekend after sharing a photo of herself drinking a glass of wine.

The image was taken at Sushi Park in West Hollywood where she dined with husband Jay-Z.

Beyonce – who gave birth to twins Sir and Rumi in June – dressed in a stunning $484 Alexis wrap dress that shows off her décolletage and gold necklaces, but her fans were more interested in the glass of red in her hand.

Apart from the plenty of “Drunk in Love” jokes, one follower said, “But how can you drink if you breastfeed? Let’s hope it’s iced tea”.

“Sooo, she’s not breastfeeding?” and “People don’t know if she pumped before she went out and can have a drink or two while feeding”, others remarked.

The studies regarding breastfeeding and alcohol consumption aren’t clear-cut.

The American Academy of Paediatrics advises mums to avoid routine consumption of alcohol and to wait two hours after drinking to breastfeed in order to allow alcohol levels time to decline.

That two-hour window is one reason the “pump and dump” method (emptying the breast after drinking so the baby doesn’t consume any milk with alcohol) isn’t a popular option for many women.

“We aren’t absolutely certain of the affects of alcohol on breastfed babies because the data isn’t strong,” Tami Rowen, MD, a San Francisco-based gynaecologist and obstetrician, told Yahoo Beauty.

“All the studies are observational or retrospective because it’s unethical to give breastfeeding women alcohol in order to study them.”

No matter how Bey is feeding her babies, one thing is clear: These are two cool parents-of-three making the most of date night.

    She’s obviously not breastfeeding. They hired 8 different Nannys to cover all 24 hours of the day. You need to be with your baby 24/7 to breastfeed

    This is a great story but people shouldn’t worry if she breastfeeds her kids or not

    Beyonce is a grown woman, I’m sure her children are being nourished properly.

    Her babies are two months studies also show that breast feeding twins is 10x’s harder than jus feeding one child and even if she is she’s allowed to have a glass of red wine whic is clearly what’s in her glass
