I am making this a second part becuase it got so long that I know people dont like to read past the first page lol...
I got alot of comments saying that I dont know if the baby has something wrong with her ( meaning the mom wants me to keep her son while she tends to the baby) , or that she is depressed...
I DO KNOW that the baby doesnt have any sort of medical problem that warrants special care , she had jaundice when she was first born but that is it...
You guys are right in not knowing if she could have PPD or something, BUT i really dont believe so... she takes the baby to the park ( I guess just for the baby swings) , she goes to playdates, and even visits family -- all without her son ( who is actually of the age that would benefit from those sorts of things) .
Do you know how odd it is for me to take my kids and her son to the park only to "run into" her there with her younger child...
Or to call to say that my kids are sick and maybe she shouldnt bring him over , but she will say " its ok, he will be fine".
obviously something is going on, as to why she treats him like this... and it bothers me so much that I cant help but think about it....

Sounds to me like she doesn't want to deal with both the baby that you watch and her 'younger child' that you see her with at the park at the same time. Does the 'younger child' have issues? DD has ADHD and I didn't always have the confidence to bring her out with her brothers - especially when they were infants. How does the 'younger child' act with the baby?
