Saturday, April 22, 2006Hey, I'm all for breastfeeding. Anyone that reads the Lactivist knows that I'm...well...a lactivist... but there are some instances in which breast milk is NOT the best thing to give your baby.
Like when you're on cocaine.
From WOOD TV:
Ogemaw County prosecutors say the five-month-old girl died after drinking breast milk containing cocaine.
Assistant Prosecutor Scott Williams says she wasn't charged with murder because he believes the death was NOT intentional.
Prosecutors allege the mother used cocaine while she was breast-feeding the child.
The drug was passed on through her breast milk.
Of course the bigger issue here isn't bad breast milk, it's a mom that's on drugs.
