Mum was found breastfeeding her baby while high on P

Filed under: General — Vman @ 11:25 am Sat 3rd December 2011

I don’t know why anyone would be shocked by this.

We spend over $1.7 billion dollars on the DPB which we know leads to these outcomes. Why all of a sudden pretend to be shocked?

A Hamilton mum was found breastfeeding her baby while high on P during a Waikato drug operation, shocking veteran detectives.

Waikato police acting district crime services manager, Detective Inspector Chris Page, said the woman appeared oblivious to the risk to her baby.

Children were found in nearly 20 per cent of homes raided by police during the month-long methamphetamine operation, dubbed Operation Share.

Mr Page said the breastfeeding incident was a first for his 27-year policing career.

“I think members of the community will be shocked by this, and it reinforces for us how important it is to continue to target and work on the methamphetamine trade and industry,” he said.


  1. it maybe the first time a cop has seen it with his own eyes but one can almost guarantee its happened in plenty other households as well..and dealt with a soft approach more than likely

  2. There was a similar case hit the news a few years back where a mother kept getting wasted and passing out for up to 24 ours. The father moved out with the child and to his mother’s place to look after the child and the family court gave the mother sole custody. Wouldn’t it be interesting to know where that child is now?

  4. Even easier to solve. Put the mother in jail for supplying illegal substances to a minor (through her breast-milk). Give the child to one of the thousands of childless couples who want to adopt. Hey hang on, that would mean doing what is best for the child…….getting it away from a parent who is incapable of looking after it.

  5. Come now, surely you’re not suggesting women should be held accountable for any behaviour that harms children? There are no laws restricting pregnant women from any behaviours (short of deliberate abortion) that cause damage, disability or death to unborn children, and really to be fair the same should apply to children who have been born. And if you disagree with that you’re clearly a male chauvinist pig who hates women. Check out this story about a young pregnant woman whose choice to drink alcohol appears to have caused her baby to be born 13 weeks early, costing us all hugely and unnecessarily to patch up her wrongdoing. No hint anywhere of holding her accountable for her behaviour, so get with the game and just find a man somewhere to blame for this P mother’s choices too.

    is that all she is getting… a slap on her wrist.. a male would be crucified by now and kids removed from his care.
