This is crazy. I can't imagine what made her think that this was a good idea.

IDK, I've totally drank too much since I've been nursing DD. She was at a wedding, so its pretty likely that she had her kid with someone else and had pumped. I've gone out with my friends to a bar and left DD with pumped milk and I consider myself to "take nursing seriously."

I just cant believe that she used her breastmilk as a weapon against the cops. I wonder how many of the cops were totally grossed out by having some random woman's breastmilk squirted at them.

Pffft, I nursed my oldest for almost four years (including through his younger brother's pregnancy), without supplementing. I've nursed in public without shame. I've had my partner sit outside my class for eight hours a day with a one week old infant so I could feed the baby before he was old enough to be safely introduced to a bottle. I take nursing seriously. AND l drink alcohol on occasion (and have drunk to intoxication in a few rare instances).

Never did assault a cop with breastmilk, though.

I have taken aim at my husband when he was being obnoxious...

lol, "using breast milk as a weapon" bahahaha....

To add, I have also drank socially while nursing, but would never do so while pregnant or with a baby- only with an older toddler. The way I figure it, people have been drinking alcohol while nursing as long as it's been around- I don't think it's the source of other issues like cancer or stupidity or w/e may be... (not to spark a debate or offend anyone or anything)

Yep, I feel the same way. For me the issue is not alcohol transfer in breastmilk, its the fact that you cant take care of your kid if you are drunk. I assume this woman didnt have her baby there, or it would have been mentioned. I've had half a beer when in my second and third trimester too, and I dont see anything wrong with it. (only half because it has to be good beer for me to drink it when Im pregnant as the taste of lager when Im pregnant is too gross).

I love the link to the article about the woman in Owensboro. KY mamas represent!
