    I don't know... it seems like a reasonable precaution.

    But it also seems like the dad was just trying to "hold something over" the mother.

    I think the fact that anyone can ban a mother from breastfeeding is a bit scary.

    Make no mistake, this is not about what is the best interest of a baby, it's about 2 men controlling a woman's body and the father using the baby to control the mother's actions.

    Thankfully women who are on medication that is contraindicated with breastfeeding are usually sensible enough to follow the recommended medical advice.



    Personally I wouldn't get a tattoo whilst breastfeeding for no other reason that it just wouldn't seem right for me. However I have full faith in the ABA's advice which does not recommend against getting tattoos (from a safe regulated tattoo parlour) whilst breastfeeding, as well as the numerous other studies that prove minimal or no risk and would not think wrong of someone who chose to get a tattoo whilst breastfeeding.

    I also agree that this specific case seems to be more about parenting disputes and an ugly court battle than the actual "dangers" of getting a tattoo and breastfeeding.
    Fair enough, I agree with that too. But more with taking the kid into care, rather than a ban on breastfeeding. It just feels like yet another way it's not accepted IYKWIM.

    I wouldn't either. But really, I'm sure she researched the place first. If the court had found that particular tattoo parlour inadequate in any way, sure. No mention of that though.

    I waited until I had finished bfing before getting another tattoo (it was for my ds) and I actually noticed in the parlor and on their paperwork were notations that you had to include confirmation if you were pregnant or breastfeeding. If you were they were not able to tattoo you due to insurance reasons. This I have found to be the case at most parlors.

    In this instance I think the ruling is wrong. It is up to the mother to make this risk assessment not two men trying to exert their authority.

    The judge's consideration is purely the welfare of the child by law. From the SMH

    Judge Myers said he weighed up the benefits of breastfeeding for an 11-month-old infant against the life-long harm caused to a child who contracted HIV.
    "It is the view of the court that it is not in the best interests of the child that the mother continue to breastfeed the child, and in those circumstances the court will make the order sought by the father, that is, that the mother be prevented from breastfeeding the child," he said.
    He also said it was "disappointing" that the mother had smoked cannabis on May 22 while she was breastfeeding.
    Both parents provided the court with clean drug screens. Judge Myers also ordered both the mother and father to abstain from using illicit drugs in the 48 hours prior to or during the care of their son.
    He also ordered them not to "partake in any criminal activity" while the boy is with them.
    Further, he ordered the mother to live with the child's maternal great grandmother and the father to live with the child's paternal grandmother to ensure there is a "responsible adult" around the child.

    Being ordered to abstain from drug use or criminal activity makes me suspect this couple may have a dodgy/criminal history.

    I suspect there's more going on here than just the breastfeeding issue.
