“Your own link says light drinking is fine. We won't know what the mom actually had until she can speak to her side.”

“The article says she was downing drink after drink. Yes, we need to know what the mother has to say. The article is a starting point only.”

“We won't know until the mom is allowed to speak, which won't be until January. For godssake, we have breweries with children's play areas here. Your standard of parenting isn't everyone eles's. Can we hang up the mother shaming (for once?)”

“Wrong again. I did read the article -- all we have is the waitress's word -- the mom hasn't been allowed to speak her side until January (if you had read the article, you'd know that). We have no idea if "drink after drink" means simply two -- which is perfectly acceptable to do and not harmful in any way. Because pumping is an exhausting process and you should used pumped milk wisely (some women don't have an abundance), you have to pick and choose which feeding it'd be appropriate to use the pumped milk -- that would be 4-5 hours AFTER she had her beers -- not before or during. All you need is one day of breastfeeding education to know this (but you know, they also have books for that too).”

“Yeah its easier to drink 4 or 5 drinks and then breast feed! nothing like binge drinking before breast feeding. Nothing like giving drugs to a 7 month old! No thanks but have fun getting drunk and breast feeding but i love my children to much and would never get them drunk....its common sense to bad they do not have school for that!”

“If one or more of them was not drinking to the point of intoxication, then nothing was wrong. All we have is the waitress's word. The mom is a mom of three, a business owner who owns a floral shop, and does things like attend baseball games (and is probably a seasoned drinker with a moderate tolerance). She's not some alcoholic teen from the streets. Get a grip.”

“No, you are not. Not to mention, you have absolutely no idea if she had pumped milk at home to use when she got home if she was planning on having "drink after drink" (which for me, would be 4 or more). The BEST time for her to be breastfeeding would be while she is taking her first one or two drinks before her body metabolises the alcohol. It is NOT safe to presume she drank while pregnant, because drinking while bfing works NOTHING like drinking while pregnant -- they are two totally different biological processes. Read a book.”

snickers531 on Dec 1, 2013 at 08:37:01

“nursing equals giving a baby alcohol.. FYI if you had read the article she drank drink after drink and then breast fed the baby. So at this time it does not matter if she had pumped bottles at home. This would be when she should of brought them with her. Again more trouble with reading comprehension. There's school for that.”

“You have absolutely no way to know that unless you were there. She could have had two beers, which is perfectly okay to do while breastfeeding. That certainly wouldn't leave me "drunk" at all, nor would it for many, many people. Stop jumping to conclusions when you have very little information to make educated ones.”

Hansy Peguero on Dec 1, 2013 at 08:56:41

“I don't think that drink after drink means two beers. I am a mother and I breastfed. There is no need to put a 7 month old in that situation, get a sitter or don't go out.”

“And plenty of mothers are able to do it in moderation with zero problems for their infants. Just because your sister couldn't be bothered to practice moderation doesn't mean everyone else does. And we have no idea how many drinks this woman had. And yes, I've balanced a beer while holding a baby before (newsflash -- there are martini playdates and playgroups held at breweries where I live) -- it's not an issue if one isn't getting intoxicated.”

“It's not a safe assumption to make. Plenty of breastfeeding mothers drink because it's not harmful. They abstained during pregnancy because there is a lot of debate as to its effects and harm.”

hat1701d on Nov 30, 2013 at 18:51:35

“I'm not talking about whether it's harmful or not. I'm talking about whether she chose to do so during pregnancy. There are plenty of examples of those who do or did drink during pregnancy for whatever reason they choose or chose to. Not all are responsible individuals in every matter and aspect of their life. Humans are a fickle group overall as history teaches.”

“So you have no problem with a woman slamming down drinks, holding a child? Or a woman, that if she is drinking like that in public, most certainly drinks like that a lot, breastfeeding her child.
Please don't try to lecture me on what is "perfectly fine in moderation". I raised two children myself. My sister, who drank daily, never saw the problem with it either. She also breastfeed. It is not healthy for the child as I have seen it first hand.”

“She is actually correct. This is what you are SUPPOSED to do to minimize alcohol exposure to breastmilk. And the basic rule all nursing mothers are given is "Safe to drive, safe to nurse."”

River Birch on Nov 30, 2013 at 18:48:17

“Maybe that was the basic rule in 1960.  It is not included in the 2013 Mayo Clinic website.  All drunk drivers think it is 'safe' for them to drive because it is a subjective opinion.”

“No it's not. Drinking while breastfeeding is perfectly fine. Drinking while pregnant is questionable. They're two entirely different things.”

Moni222 on Nov 30, 2013 at 20:00:32

“All depends on how much the mother is drinking:

La Leche League's The Breastfeeding Answer Book (pp. 597-598) says:

Alcohol passes freely into mother's milk and has been found to peak about 30 to 60 minutes after consumption, 60 to 90 minutes when taken with food. Alcohol also freely passes out of a mother's milk and her system. It takes a 120 pound woman about two to three hours to eliminate from her body the alcohol in one serving of beer or wine...the more alcohol that is consumed, the longer it takes for it to be eliminated. It takes up to 13 hours for a 120 pound woman to eliminate the alcohol from one high-alcohol drink. The effects of alcohol on the breastfeeding baby are directly related to the amount the mother consumes.”

hat1701d on Nov 30, 2013 at 18:30:38

“I wasn't stating whether it is safe to drink while breast feeding verse safe to drink while pregnant. I'll reword it...It's probably a safe bet that if she drinks while breast feeding her child then she probably did so while she was pregnant as well. Not a 100% garunteed bet but a safe margin of error. Does that work better on clarifying on what I was trying to get across? Yes, it does make assumptions but the vast majority of people make assumptions based on daily observations of everything they see.”

“She was not giving alcohol to an infant, and she was not engaging in illegal behavior. Until she is allowed to tell her side, we won't know if it was dangerous behavior. "Drink after drink" could well have been "sip after sip" of a beer, which is perfectly safe for a nursing mother to ingest. We won't know until the mom gets a chance to defend herself.”

“Sigh. Speaking of scientific research:

Thomas W. Hale, R.Ph. Ph.D., member of the LLLI Health Advisory Council, says this in his book Medications and Mothers' Milk (12th ed.):

Significant amounts of alcohol are secreted into breastmilk although it is not considered harmful to the infant if the amount and duration are limited. The absolute amount of alcohol transferred into milk is generally low. Beer, but not ethanol, has been reported in a number of studies to stimulate prolactin levels and breastmilk production (1, 2, 3). Thus it is presumed that the polysaccharide from barley may be the prolactin-stimulating component of beer (4). Non-alcoholic beer is equally effective.

In an interesting study of the effect of alcohol on milk ingestion by infants, the rate of milk consumption by infants during the 4 hours immediately after exposure to alcohol (0.3 g/kg) in 12 mothers was significantly less (7). Compensatory increases in intake were then observed during the 8 - 16 hours after exposure when mothers refrained from drinking.

Adult metabolism of alcohol is approximately 1 ounce in 3 hours, so mothers who ingest alcohol in moderate amounts can generally return to breastfeeding as soon as they feel neurologically normal. Chronic or heavy consumers of alcohol should not breastfeed.”

“Because there isn't a magic tube that leads from the throat to the nipples. Alcohol is metabolized by the body before it enters the bloodstream and then the milk. It's basic biology.”

Would you convert the task of growing up your child little by little (privately), into something the whole world needs to comment on and that the world argues fiercely about??? That would be the politicization. Poor child might not even understand all the messages that get thrown at him/her as a result of the video you posted. Would you post it?”

“There are 1,400 rights, benefits and protections (yes -- 1,400) that married couples have that single people do not. They're not hard to Google.”

Erin84 on Nov 6, 2013 at 17:33:49

“And how many of those rights have nothing to do with single people, since by definition of being single, you don't have a person to designate as your legal spouse? Yes, there are some examples, like taxes and adopting a child, like Ian Salmon pointed out above in the comment train. Those things are unfair in some cases (adoption laws vary by state and marriage can put people at a financial disadvantage in some ways) and should be reformed. However many of the other rights to marriage exist precisely because two people who were previously unrelated wanted to become legal immediate next of kin under the law. As a few examples: The right not to be forced to testify against a spouse doesn't really pertain to a person who doesn't have someone to designate a spouse. The right to be first in line to inherit a spouse's assets and retirement benefits doesn't pertain to people who don't actually have a spouse in the first place. Now, heterosexuals in all 50 states have the right to marry and gain those benefits. Saying marriage discriminates against them because they're not married is like saying requiring driver's licenses discriminates against people who failed to qualify for or chose not to get a driver's license. The actual discrimination occurs when a person is barred from the opportunity to marry in the first place. And the marriage license exists so that it is known both parties agreed to the arrangement in the even of disputes.”
