"The ministry does not recommend babies or children be given alcoholic drinks," she said.
I’m sure that’ll come as surprising news to some sections of trailer trash society.

They’ll probably revert back to feeding their bubs Coke.

They used to feed ale to kids because it was safer for them than water, but vodka is a bit stronger than that.

A good female friend used to tell me that mothers were given beer (I hope alcohol-free) just after them given birth to increase milk flow

This NZ stuff is 4.8% so about equal to a strong beer.
Wine improves with age
I improve with wine :YMPARTY:

My daughter was a fractious child when she was a very young baby, and the health visitor prescribed 'gripe water' (the HV was Italian and called it grippie water)
The original Woodward's Gripe Water contained 3.6% alcohol, dill oil, sodium bicarbonate, sugar, and water.
Prior to alcohol's removal from the recipe, Woodward's maximum recommended dose of gripe water contained an alcohol content equivalent to five tots of whiskey for an 80kg adult.
- as a result the child developed a taste for alcohol which lasted into adulthood.
