No, I am not making this up! I am watching 20/20 and just heard about a mom from Toad Suck, Arkansas (again, I am not making this up...that is really the town's name)... anyway, the mom was seen drinking alcoholic beverages and breastfeeding her 6 month old. At the same time.
There is a bit of confusion.... mom says she had 2 beers, an off duty waitress said she was drinking mixed drinks with hard liquor. Mom was arrested for endangering a child but the charges later dropped. She maintains she was "sober enough to be breastfeeding."
Really? Sober, maybe --- but breastfeeding while drinking?? I am no expert on drinking alcoholic beverages or breastfeeding but doesn't whatever the mom consumes cross over into the breast milk?
The waitress who called the police and turned the mom in? She lost her job. So, if you saw someone with a drink in one hand and a baby breastfeeding in the other what would you do?
