I wonder if they will give the girl back to the mother. Wouldn't surprise me. I have absolutely no faith in Child Protective Services.

I told them about a dangerous situation with my ex daughter-in-law and my grandson and they investigated, believed their lies, and never did a thing.

Finally the courts helped us and got the poor kid away from the beast. He is doing so much better.
He was 9 years old and still in diapers! They did NOTHING.

Munchausen or mom just couldn't handle one more mouth to feed - not hard to make it look you are
a concerned mother - what about history with her other children ??? Its not unusual for a mother to single out one child ..........

That's easy to figure out. As a writer, I think like one.
She wanted to kill the baby but didn't want to be blamed. If the baby died in a hospital, the hospital would be blamed. Or so she thought.
I totally get it, but it still doesn't make sense. She would've known she would have been suspected right?

Hmmmm, acting suspicious they say, I'd like to know how so. Maybe that will help me make more sense of this odd story. Am I the only one who thinks it seems odd so far?

Could she have been like that one mother who would almost kill the baby then bring it back to life and claim a seizure of some sort?

At least the baby is ok. That being said, I say put the mother in jail for a few years, then when she gets out, give her kids back to her. I am sure will have learned her lesson and will never harm another child again. Yeah right, believe that and ur just as stupid as she is.

Really you can tell if someone has been smothered the baby wasnt a new born. If that was the plan to blame the hos staff then shes a total moron! Can you use that as a suitable defence? Idiocracy??(cant spell either guess Im on the right thread lol) Have they released a statement from the father? Love to read that!

I think it's important that we take a moment and look at it from the Mother's perspective. Maybe that baby was really, really annoying her and wouldn't shut up.

It's only fair. There's two sides to every story. The baby could have provoked her.

As the mother to 7 kids ...Heres what ya do ,The baby is crying for no reason,(i.e. not hungery ,wet whatever) you place the baby gently in crib walk away , shut door. Then call a friend ,watch tv ,what ever to chill oout ..YOU do NOT try to smoother the baby ..........Hope this so called mom gets time and the help she needs but place the babywith caring people ....

I can already tell you the outcome of this arrest. Since the perpetrator was a woman ... and mother .... she will most likely receive probation, or a token jail sentence of 6 months. If the husband or father had comitted the offense ... he would get the max. jail time. Yes ! There IS a double standard in the justice system. A woman commits a serious offense, she gets a slap on the wrist. The same offense comitted by a man ... he gets max. jail time. I've never understood it. Perhaps the ACLU will someday explore this prejudicial action.
