OSHKOSH, Wis. — A 4-month-old girl died when her inebriated mother fell asleep on top of her while breast-feeding, prosecutors said. Lorinda Hawkins told police she fell asleep about 15 minutes after she started breast-feeding the baby Feb. 23 because of her intoxication, a criminal complaint said. When she woke up about an hour later, the baby was pale and wasn't breathing, the complaint said.

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.
How convenient....what will they think of next.
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.
That's just sick!
