No the baby can't be exposed but touch but if she blow smoke n his face or around him den yea
I do believe meth is different though. There is something called meth residue. Basically, if someone smokes it, it will cling to any surface such as their clothes. Holding the baby would indeed then transfer the drug to the baby. good luck
I was told this but I need documentation. Would you know where to get that? I don't want her to do more harm to him than she already has. She is my niece and he is my great nephew. So family fostering is hard. I know something is happening to him during visitation because of how he acts after.
I don't think it is asking too much for her to be clean to see him. But, the state just wants to reunite mother and baby. Baby has not much rights it seems.
If you suspect anything, can you try asking CWS to swab the baby and test for meth or anything like that right after the visit when you get there to pick him up?
The baby does have rights, trust me. If you have a good social worker on that case, they are feeling pain and concern for that child because of the positive test results and will be working to make a case for the next Court date to have the visitation rights terminated or, at the very least, reduced and changed to supervised, more if the case is reaching 12 months.
Have you voiced your concerns to your social worker at a home visit, CWS office visit, or by phone/email? If not, do so. See what the options are.
