Drunk Mom's Baby DIES During Breastfeeding, Manslaughter Charges Filed

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Yadina Indira Morales, a Maryland mom who was breastfeeding her baby while highly intoxicated, has been charged with manslaughter after the infant died.

Officials say Morales was both breastfeeding and "highly intoxicated," which led to her two-month-old being found unresponsive, unable to be revived.

The alcohol in her system was only part of the story here. Cops say Morales passed out while breastfeeding and that the baby was found underneath her.

She's since been charged with manslaughter, second-degree child abuse, reckless endangerment, and other lesser charges as a result of her actions.

This was not her first involvement with the law, either.

Last year, a man Morales identified as her boyfriend was charged with child abuse after another child, Morales' then two-year-old girl, was hospitalized.

Maryland online judicial records indicate that the man, Daniel Keith Edmonds, ultimately registered a plea to a lesser, second-degree assault charge.

In the current case, drinking when you're a mom is not a crime, but clearly if you drink to the point where you can't function, you can commit a crime.

Unknowingly or unwittingly? Perhaps. But if you're impaired, you can still be held responsible. This should be a cautionary tale for all to take note of.

Breastfeeding is important, but the baby's safety is more so. Time to pump and dump, or go the formula route. Or get a sitter, or lay off the booze.

Seriously. There's got to be a way to prevent this.

tacky and racist! y'all act like people of other races don't do dumb stuff to have terrible consequences happwn. all of should be concerned about the children of abuse and not politics.


The line, "time to pump and dump, or go the formula route infuriates me! Time for a sitter!! It's the irresponsiblity of the mother that killed that poor child, not breastfeeding. Give me break, she could have passed out on her with a bottle, or just holding her. SMH


Black bitch deserves to scoop out her stank hole with a knife and shove roadkill in there until she gets an infection . Take out the roadkill becuase it's not it's fault, bury it . While this bitch gets a bad infection strap her down and throw African fire ants down her fucking throat . Let her die slow and painful . Put her in Saw 8!!!

I see I got the best of your ass somewhere down the line? You no longer can even use your own user. You have weakness huh? Must be an Obama voter.


It's a shame that the baby's mom is a drunk . I hope she is haunted everyday of the rest of her miserable life . She's not like me pretty and white with pretty hair . Maybe that's why she drinks , is Mommy sorry now ?!?


Her hair is pube-like and like a Brillo pad. Poor lady


First of all no one seems concerned with the fact that she was intoxicated and breast feeding! WTF is it ok to get a child drunk? NO! That's why its against the law for any adult to contribute to a minor! When you choose to Breastfeed you choose to be healthy so your child can be healthy not to get them wasted and have them sleep longer. I guarantee the alcohol content was probably enough to kill that child!

@ Renee

She smothered the baby, the baby didn't die from booze.

@ Turd

Yah she smothered the baby, but it happened because she was drunk and breastfeeding her baby, what a freaking idiot!!! Pump or formula feed, some people are so stupid!! Why are these people allowed to have kid after kid! So frustrating!!! There's nothing wrong with drinking while you have kids, but if your gonna be that drunk have someone else watch your child!!!

@ fee+see

You are ignorant


If she can hold on a little longer, Obama will rob every white person in America - after lying to them of course and this black turd will be just fine. If you like your insurance you can keep it..... Then we will reach in your pocket ..... Then give it to the Obama voters.


Who let that woman out of the hospital with ANOTHER child? If one was already beaten to the point of hospitalization - don't you think someone would have said.."Oh, we should take this one away before the UNTHINKABLE happens." ....too late now. Praying for that little angel.
