Line Severinsen, an illustrator animator and mother of two in Bergen, has a funny series of simple webcomics that share some of the challenges and everyday realities of being an expectant mom. We all know motherhood can be tough, but her comic - Kos og Kaos, or "Cuddles and Chaos" in English - illustrates these struggles in a fun and approachable way.

Severinsen started her comic when she was pregnant in 2012, and continued it after a brief hiatus when she was pregnant with her second child (who was born in May of this year). Let us know in the comment section, mommies – did she get it right?

I think it was 7 months since the authors last drink..not seven months total during pregnancy...brains, people!

On average, people find out at 8 weeks, which is 2 months; and it's quite possible that a women had a few drinks in that moment of time

Most ppl don't know they are pregnant till 4-8 weeks maybe she didn't find out till later?

You don't need to abstain from drinking while breastfeeding, just be minimal with it.

JulianaPopovich

The whole pregnancy + while nursing = 1 year & 9 months

You can drink while breastfeeding though, you just can't get drunk

I had the occasional glass of RED wine in my last trimester of pregnancy. Special occasions like a glass with Christmas dinner and on Valentine's Day. March 19, 2015 I had my beautiful 10 lb boy. I sure you he's far from "retarded". So yeah, 7 months without alcohol.

Even if you don't know you are pregnant for the first to months you still can't drink while you breast feed from what I read...

I was planning a baby so didn't drink alcohol or caffeine for 6 months before trying for her, nor through pregnancy. Turns out I was sensitive to caffeine so that was a great move and cleared up severe migraines and other health problems and I never really wanted to be drunk ever again after so win win :) Cheaper and healthier

And if she did these while still pregnant then she could've only been 7 months at that point

Who would take a chance and drink two of those months? Dont blame me if your child comes out retarded.

That was stupid! Some women don't even realize they are pregnant at the beginning. She didn't drink during the entire pregnancy. What is wrong with you?
