Allanah Earley took her three-week-old daughter out to a bar last Friday to get the weekend started. After having half a dozen drinks or so, she took the kid and wandered about in the cold for a while before ending up at a friend's house to continue drinking and feed the baby.
Police arrested Earley and she has been charged with risk of injury to a minor. The Department of Children and Families was contacted. All kidding aside, I don't understand what was going through this woman's head that she thought it was okay to take her kid out drinking while she is breastfeeding. Perhaps if we want to ensure the continuation of our species, we need to make sure people know how to be good parents. Because while there are an awful lot of folks who are very good parents, there are an awful lot who aren't.
