medical expert medical experts are split on whether it's safe to drink alcohol during pregnancy. a new commentary in the british medical journal says that some health providers say it's okay for women to consume some alcohol in their second and third trimester. most will say, though, that pregnant women should abstain from alcohol altogether. however, they agree on two things -- that women should stay away from alcohol in the first trimester and they should avoid heavy drinking during the entire pregnancy. >> okay. so controversial study there. speaking of controversy, a breast-feeding mother in arizona says that she was shamed by flight attendant on an american airlines flight out of chicago. and this apparently happened because she was using a breast pump on the airplane at the bathroom. >> and the confrontation between that mother and the flight attendant was captured on the mom's new ipad. here's abc's brandi hitt. >> i was in there breast-feeding. >> you know what? you need to -- >> reporter: an airplane argument over using a breast pump. >> if i don't pump regularly, my breast milk supply goes down.

2:16 am
says it has apologized to hanniman and our policy is that "women can breast-feed or express milk at any of our facilities, seats and in lavatories on the plane." american airlines says its flight attendant's number one priority is safety. they will check on anyone in a bathroom for a long time and recommend new moms needing to pump just let them know. >> that's good advice, let them know they'll be in there for a while. it is troubling to flight attendants if someone's in there for too long. but she said apparently the folks knew. >> that's what she said. but i guess it's one of those educational tools for flight attendants. and american airlines say they do plan to use it as an educational tool but it is a good idea because those flight attendants are there for our safety and security primarily. >> you're a big supporter of flight attendants, aren't you? >> oh, i would make a great flight attendant. >> you would. and you would have given that lady a free drink. but probably not a beer because then she'd have to pump and dump.
