Drinking does not raise the risk of developmental problems for babies, a study has suggested.
A study of more than 11,000 babies under two years old, published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health found no evidence of harm.
The study is the second to have examined large numbers of children and the effects of drinking alcohol.
The control group of eighteen month infants was fed a diet of warm breast milk in baby bottles while the test group of the same age was given a quart of bourbon straight up.
Observation of the control and test groups concluded that shortly after ingesting the test liquids both groups had trouble walking and talking and once all there was to drink was gone both groups shit their pants and had a long nap.
Repeated trials of the study involving three other UK universities came up with similar results.
Dr. Fergus McFaddie who led the study said that "While no evidence of behavioral or emotional problems have yet been discovered we recommend that trials continue with the infants until school age to make sure nothing is taken for chance."
