Boozy Breast Feeding Mess

It’s a bit sad when something in your home town is so over-the-top embarrassing that it makes news in another country. But that’s what happened with a story out of Toad Suck Arkansas.

Yes, it really is called Toad Suck – the town’s website says, “We catch a lot of heck about our silly name, but we are a serious place located just west of Conway in central Arkansas. “ The amazing name must have been part of the attraction when a UK paper ran a story about two woman, a baby and the perils of turning someone in for bad behavior.

As the London paper, The Daily Mail, tells it, Jackie Conners called the cops when she noticed a patron at the restaurant where she works, “downing drink after drink” while breastfeeding an infant.

Sounds pretty hick. And pretty disgusting. The woman was sitting in the pizzeria where Jackie was a waitress. It’s bad enough the lady was drinking non-stop in a pizza place, but she was also getting her baby drunk second hand. So Jackie called the local police who arrested Tasha Adams on a charge of endangering the welfare of a minor. But there’s more…

A few days later, Jackie was fired from her job. She believes it is because she took matters into her own hands and acted, as she sees it, in the best interests of the child.

So the picture UK readers are left with of our state is pretty trailer-trashy. Not only does a mother think it’s OK to drink while breastfeeding, but the practice is accepted enough that turning her in is grounds for losing your job. And, oh yeah, it happens near Toad Suck – bonus.

The whole thing is sad, but we know how strong a grip alcohol can have on a person, and the really upsetting thing here will be if the offender doesn’t get treatment. Without kicking the addiction, things will just get worse, and a new baby deserves better.
