Is Drunk Breastfeeding A Form Of Child Abuse?
Add this to the list of things not to do while drunk: breastfeed. Stacey Anvarinia, 26, from North Dakota, didn’t catch that memo. Earlier this year, police officers responded to an unrelated call at her home when they noticed she was drinking while breastfeeding. The brilliant cops weren’t sure if that was okay, so they put in a call to the local hospital to confirm that was not so good for the 6-week-old baby. The baby was taken out of Anvarinia’s custody. Yesterday, she plead guilty to child neglect and now she’s facing up to five years in prison. Clearly, the baby was put in harm’s way, even if the cops didn’t know it at first. But do you think this should be considered child abuse? [Grand Fork Herald]
