I hope the link works, as it was taken from a radio station's news feed on Facebook. But the gist of it is, having been reported by an ex during a pretty nasty custody battle, a woman has been court ordered to stop breast feeding her 11mo baby because she got a tattoo 4 weeks ago. She is appealing the decision at the court in Sydney, but aibu in thinking that this is an awful decision by the courts? Even bf organisations have come forward to say that the benefits of bf far outweigh any risks of a tat. And the woman has tested neg for hep and HIV.

Sounds petty and controlling on the part of the father.

I think it takes 6 months for the all clear?

The whole thing is very questionable, the Mother was the Primary Carer and BF, yet the Judge has awarded the Father four days a week, residency and the Mother, three days.

It will be interesting to see what the Appeal verdict us, tomorrow.

""I think it takes 6 months for the all clear?""

HIV can take years to develop and be detectable, it's a bug bear of mine that the likes of Hollyoaks etc give out incorrect information, when they should be using the opportunity to educate.

The woman used a reputable Tattoo Artist, apparently.

HIV can take years to develop and be detectable

I don't watch Hollyoaks so I've been getting my information from the sexual health clinic. Can you point me in the direction of an explanation for what you'd like people to understand about HIV? Are you sure you don't mea for HIV to develop into AIDS?

If your not allowed to donate blood after having a tattoo or piecing. I would think the same should apply to breastfeeding mothers. You don't breast feed after getting a tattoo. Your putting your child at risk. Why get a tat in the first place when breastfeeding?

The father was right to take her to court. She gave him a reason to.

Just to clarify. You can donate blood after four months of having a tattoo or piecing.
