  • That's ridiculous. I'm glad the server was fired, even if it was for something else.

    Just curious to know why you aren't sticking by your original response on this?

    ETA: It was probably wise anyhow, I could have seen this thread blowing up.

  • ooo drama.  It seemed a little quiet recently.
    ppl are dumb.
    My dh was just finishing a beer at bennigans and asked the pimple faced server to bring him another. The kid refused, said he could only have 1 beer at a time. We had been there before and returned again, and NEVER had that problem. ppl are stupid over alcohol.

    What was the original response?

  • Don't quote me but it said something about her knowing someone or having a friend that did that routinely and how she was more or less taking the position of what the waitress did. (This is putting it very nicely as I knew it would stir some feathers how it was originally worded).

  • I'm speechless over this. I personally would pump and dump, but I know people who swear by a bit of alcohol in the milk supply for teething babies.

  • It takes at least 30 min for alcohol to get into breast milk so if she's breast feeding while drinking, the baby isn't getting any alcohol anyway! It's not like we develop a tube that goes straight from the throat to the boob! Either way, I can't believe this is going to trial. What a waste, and that poor mom...

    This was pretty much my reaction too. Stupid waste of time for our already overloaded justice system.

  • That makes me so angry. I drank some and breastfed my baby, no worries. My pediatrician said it was fine as lone as you aren't drunk. People need to mind their own business.

  • I am just trying to figure out how she managed to simultaneously nurse a drink AND a baby. Admittedly I was not the most adept at nursing but still I think I would need three arms to do both at the same time.

  • I can't believe the cops actually arrested her.  As others have commented, it takes at least 30 minutes before the alcohol makes it into the breast milk.  For all we know she could be planning to pump and dump later.  The fact this is going to trial makes me stabby!

    And I can nurse while doing other things too.  It takes practice but is doable.

    I was a pro at nursing. I could crochet a scarf while nursing, eat a meal, whatever.
    Same! I nursed for a year and could browse my iPad, have a glass of wine, read a book, etc. 

    But yes, the bottom line is, MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS!

  • I'm curious if there were other factors that made the waitress think to call the police. And I'm also curious if the cops gave her a breathalyzer before they arrested her. I cannot imagine that this would all happen over her having just one, or even two, drinks.

  • Ooh this one is gonna get a lot of different opinions! My opinion to each his own! I personally don't drink at all so I'll never be the subject of this lol. You do what you think is best for yourself and if you're getting professional advice even better! I just think its a personal subject/choice and not up to the public :)
  • One of the things someone in June 2014 found out more information on was the whole "drink after drink" actually meant "sip after sip"
