Woman asks if she's wrong to call stepsister a 'bad' mother.


When someone is a bad parent, it's hard to say whether or not you should do something about it. When this woman is conflicted about her stepsister, she asks Reddit:

'AITA for calling out my step sister for her smoking?'

My step sister recently had a baby, throughout her entire pregnancy she smoked ecigs.

Her baby was born and had to go to the NICU due to poor blood sugars and feedings. I asked my step mother if they informed the doctor’s that she smoked ecigs throughout her pregnancy and drank very occasionally, as a potential cause for his issues.

It was not taken well and my entire family ganged up on me . Saying I was out of line for asking that and that IATA . I told them that they say not to smoke anything during pregnancy for a reason and that I went cold turkey the day I found out I was pregnant.

(Background EVERYONE in the family does ecigs). It can be a sore subject for most but I feel like the doctors should know. AITA?

Let's see what Reddit has to say.

NTA. Doctors always know about cigarette smokers because people who smoke reek of it and have lost their own sense of smell, but I am not sure how much odor the ecigs have.

Fortunately the management of neonatal hypoglycemia does not depend on knowing whether the mother smoked.

About the only thing a mother would be taking in late pregnancy that would be crucial for the doctors managing neonatal hypoglycemia to know would be insulin or certain other diabetes medications.

NTA- Important medical information that can help doctors give the child a better life trumps your step sisters feelings. Even if she cuts you off for it, this way you will have helped the child.

Well, is OP TA? What do YOU think?
