41. That's a different calculator than the one I used.
Here's the one I used:

2.5 glasses (in an hour) puts a 20 lb girl at .337, and 3.0 glasses puts it at .433 (The gender difference doesn't appear until somewhere around puberty - but all the calculators include it since they probably weren't thinking about infant blood alcohol content).

Your calculator and mine are probably using different size glasses of wine (since neither specified the size).
