CONWAY, Ark. — A woman was arrested and charged with child endangerment after she allegedly breastfed her baby while drinking alcohol at a restaurant in Arkansas, according to ABC News.

Tasha Adams was in Conway for a funeral when she and her family stopped to eat dinner. She said she had “two beers” and breastfed her baby while at the restaurant, according to the report.

An off-duty waitress, who had showed up early for an after-hours meeting, reported Adams to management but was told the manager already decided not to “cut off” the woman.

After discussing the incident with her mom, the waitress decided to call police.

This woman was actually arrested for child endangerment, but the charges were eventually dropped. Land of the free?

The waitress told ABC she was fired as a result of the incident.

Good riddance

Twenty years ago, our health visitor cheerfully recommended a daily half of stout at 6pm for nursing mothers.

AS late as the early 80s, my Sister was given a bottle of Mackesons every morning on the Peodiatrics ward. (she had to stay three weeks before the birth... don't know why, but....)

Yup, same as that. When I was born (1949), the doc recommended that my mother drink a bottle of Guinness every day (lots of iron in Guinness, apparently), and also suggested to her that a few teaspoons of the black stuff administered to the babe at night would contribute to a better night's sleep. And I've never looked back...
