Bad headline--makes it look like breastfeeding is the cause of death, and not the mother's stupid, irresponsible actions! >:-( I hope they throw the book at her, especially since she wasn't supposed to be drinking in the first place!! Why oh WHY didn't Child Services remove those children from the home before it was too late?! Ack.

At least she wasn't nursing the kid when it was 6 years old, like a couple of stupid moms have done in the past.

... when her inebriated mother fell asleep ...

hy, oh why, do people with problems such as these have child after child


I may be going out on a limb here but I think the answer to your question lies in the word "inebriated".
