Sippy cups aren't for Chardonnay, but a coffee cup might be. A 20/20 episode featured moms who tapped the bottle on a frequent basis while raising their babes.

The shocking (to some) report followed three women who struggle with sobriety because of the pressures of daily life working or staying at home. The show also included an interview with recovering alcoholic Stephanie Wilder-Taylor, the author famed for writing about her irreverent take on motherhood in Naptime Is the New Happy Hour and other popular titles that the mom masses rallied around.
