Has everyone missed the point where the OP stated the baby had been to the doctors suffering from the ill affects of its mothers drinking? Did I imagine that part? That, in my opinion, IS abuse! And surely this doctor would be OBLIGATED to report what he saw.
I'm not saying these are terrible parents, they may very well be uneducated and clearly in need of help. I don't necessarily believe that they should have the baby taken away from them either. But a single report to DoCS will not result in that anyway. It MIGHT raise a red flag and get this family the help/education it needs.
