20. People have been giving alcohol (and laudanum) to babies for centuries.
I'm not defending this woman. I would be curious to know how much alcohol it takes to give a nine month old a .33 BAC.

Even when alcohol was given to children medicinally or as a sedative, I believe a teaspoon was the recommended dose, even less if it was cough medicine or laudanum.
