...fas is a developmental problem that occurs in utero. That's what FETAL means.

Maybe I shouldn't have went off like I did but i was already upset she wasn't answering her phone and the baby was hunger and I wasn't sure what to do. She doesn't really want to talk to me right now. Maybe I should go over a say sorry about the way I came at her?

I wouldn't call it abuse... probably not intelligent, though. It's not like when you're pregnant, at all.



I would've been furious if a mama didn't leave enough milk and then refused to answer her phone and got mad at me about it :/

If you enjoy her company and the kids are friends, I would apologise. Maybe it will turn into a discussion about breastfeeding and drinking. But I wouldn't push the subject.

That depends on how you can handle her behavior. If it happens again it would be kind of silly to make up with her, then get mad at her again for the same thing. The hardest part with people like that is ignoring them. You do what you can, then you have to let it go, to let them make their own decisions. If she doesnt make the right one, oh well. Just dont babysit for her anymore.

Then it's dangerous. My DH is a friefighter, and has gotten calls because mothers nursed and their babies got drunk. People are dumb.

I guess i'll just talk to her and see what's going on and if she doesn't want to be bother by me anymore i'll accept that and move on. If her older kid still wants to come by and play with my kids(that is if she lets her) than i wouldn't have a problem with that because the kid did nothing wrong

That's what got me worked up cause she was overly drunk, wasn't answering her phone and mad at me for blowing her cell phone up. I know people to drink a glass a wine and breastfeed. I wish she would have a sit down talk with me but I know I can't force her.

No because the alcohol leaves BM just as it does the bloodstream

It sounds like you care about her baby because you spend a lot of time with her and her children. I would be so upset to be left alone with a hungry baby and no way to feed them. I think that was not responsible on her behalf. As for safe amounts of alcohol in breastmilk and everyone's oppinion...I guess it depends on where you obtain your information. With my son, I use the AAP as my guide and they say allow 2 hours PER DRINK, and also caution that Alcohol can reduce your milk supply contrary to popular belief that it increases it. I trust the AAP and use them as my guide for many health related issues. Maybe you want to share this link with her.

Dark hops alcohol has been proven to increase milk supply.
