Mother banned from breastfeeding after getting tattoo

A federal judge in Australia banned a mother from breastfeeding because she got a tattoo.

The ruling went on to say the woman's decision to get it 4 weeks earlier exposed her 11-month-old baby to an unacceptable risk of harm.

The decision has shocked breastfeeding advocates since the woman has not tested positive for hepatitis or HIV.

This case came before the court because the baby's father raised concerns about the tattoo during a bitter parenting dispute.
