Drinking alcohol after birth.....


Ok so this personally disgusted me but im interested on your thoughts ....

A friend of the OH's wife had a baby 14 days ago, on friday her and another new mum were in our local pub drinking wine for 4 hours, with their babies in their prams. They were too drunk to be able to walk home so they had to call their husbands for lifts.

When the OH told me i was mortified that a new mum so soon after the birth would get drunk. Is that just me?????

i can understand 2 weeks after childbirth going out for a drink or two or three with a friend but its totally unacceptable to take your child with you!! not being able to care for them and have to ring someone to help them just screams out disgusting behaviour in my eyes!!

I agree. Although I'm going to breastfeed so I won't be drinking alcohol afterwards either.

I agree with bigbelly, I don't see the problem going out for a few drinks with a friend but not taking the babies with them that's not on.

Yea i can see going out for a drink with my friends, perhaps not getting totally wasted though ha ha!! But taking my baby with me would be so wrong, although i think if it was a glass of wine or something wouldnt be a problem so long as baby was happy enough.

I totally agree with u on this one.

I live straight accross from a pub.
I see kids running round outside (same ones all the time) right beside a main road and then get sent to the shop next door with 5 to keep them quiet. (during the week aswell as weekends)
They think its great as they dont know any different but i think its very irresponsible on the parents part.
I feel like gong down and telling them their kids should be at home having a good dinner and being properly cared for.

There is nothing wrong with enjoying drinks with friends, but why cant the kids be left at home with a responsible family member/granny/father ect??? I would never dream of taking my baby into a pub no matter what.
