When I was nursing, I was told by my doctor to have a drink or two if I was ever stressed. It would make me feel better and it would calm the baby down. I get drunk on two beers. Why is it wrong to have a beer while nursing? North Dakota Mother Charged With Child Neglect, Allegedly Breast-Fed Baby While Drunk BISMARCK, N.D. — A North Dakota mother has pleaded not guilty to child neglect after prosecutors alleged she was drunk while breast-feeding her 6-week-old baby. Prosecutor Carmell Mattison says alcohol was not the only factor in the felony charge against 27-year-old Stacey Anvarinia, who appeared in court Monday. She is free on bond. Mattison says the mother "wasn't in a position to care for the child properly." Anvarinia was arrested Feb. 13 after police answered a domestic disturbance call at her Grand Forks home. The prosecutor said officers witnessed Anvarinia breast-feeding the baby and asked her to stop because she was intoxicated. Her attorney David Ogren says no blood test was taken and the charge could be difficult to prove.
