Snoozing baby left with note, everyone feels bad for mom 12 hrs ago A New Zealand mother learned an important "Child Care 101" lesson (we hope) on Saturday when worried folks gathered around her car and read the note she'd placed on her sleeping newborn, tucked into the car seat and locked inside. "My mum's in doing the shopping, call her if I need anything," the note read (it also listed the mom's cellphone number). Rather than calling the authorities, the bystanders felt sorry for the mother and called her instead. "As parents ourselves we know it is hard to get a baby to sleep, and once you start moving them they can wake up," said one man. "We thought it was just a silly decision by a tired mother."
I can understand being tempted, but to actually do it? Terrible idea!!! I am shocked no one called the authorities, if for no other reason to give that mom a wake up call on what could really happen.
