Baby burnt over 40% of his body while mommy sunbathes beside him...

Horrible. The poor, poor baby! I think that mommy needs more help than it is possible to give!

  • That is just horrible. I am terrified of my daughter or one of the kids I babysit for getting burnt or even just sick from being out in the heat too long. I always slather sunblock on them and make sure they have cups of water outside to drink and we don't ever stay out longer than 45 minutes at a time..coming in to take a break, especially when I have toddlers or babies here.
    Sounds like there was something mentally wrong with that woman. Any mother should be able to understand that her baby is burning alive right in her arms, I don't care if they speak the same language or not.
    Maybe she was on drugs or something.

  • That's so sad. That poor kid. How can you be so stupid not to know that babies and sun don't mix?

  • The article seemed to imply that the mother may not be quite all there. Don't know if that is the case, but if so, she needs to be watched like a hawk with that baby.

  • What the FREAK?! It sounds like this woman was doing it on purpose and obviously ignoring the other people, and she obviously spoke English, and was pretending not to understand them and ignore them.
    I just wonder what the hell was running through that woman's mind.
    I hope her baby gets taken away and adopted by a good family, or something.
