Kenosha baby expected to recover from vodka in formula

Vodka burglars smash window, make off with liquor worth hundreds of dollars

Kenosha police said an infant who landed in intensive care after her mother accidentally used two ounces vodka to mix the baby’s formula is expected to recover.

The Kenosha Police Department said the 1-month-old had a blood alcohol level over 0.29 percent.

The 20-year-old mother told officers she didn’t know that the baby’s father had emptied a water bottle and filled it with vodka before she used it to mix the baby’s formula Monday evening. She soon noticed the baby was acting abnormally.

Lt. Bradley Hetlet said the parents then got into an argument. He said the 22-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of domestic abuse and other counts.

The baby was taken to the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin in Milwaukee.

Hetlet said Wednesday that it appears she’ll be fine.
