How stupid can you be? vent

So, my friend called me the other night asking if itt would hurt a 1year old if someone gave her Goody's PM. Turns out the baby's mom caught Grandma giving it to her and grandma said "If you don't like it you can get out of my house" Mom later found out that grandma had been giving it to her dd for the past week to make her sleep. Mom & baby left the house & I advised her to take baby to the hospital to get checked out. She was fine, but now mom & baby are basically homeless - staying with a friend. What would make someone think it's a good idea to give that to a child, much less a baby?! Ok, vent over. Please keep this little girl & her mom in your prayers. Thanks for reading.

 I have no idea what Goody's is but it sounds like a sort of medicine.  If her grandmother can't handle putting a child to sleep the natural way, then she shouldn't be handling her.  And the fact that she kicked her grandchild out because of her inability to make the right decisions is just plain wrong.  This isn't the 1950's - you can't do all the things you did with a child back in the day. If it was her child then she could make that decison, but she should have respected her granddaughter's wishes.

I'm sorry, I should have explained. Goody's is an aspirin headache powder. Goody's pm also has benadryl in it to help you sleep

Thats ridiculous. First off, why the hell would she give that to a 1 year old?! Second..she kicked them out because of her own stupidity?! Wow.. you know what..maybe its good that they aren't there anymore..who knows what else she would have given to that baby! 

*By the way.. I love your sons name!

That's what I would think too. Since your friends out of a place anyways I would look into press charges against the Grandma for child endangerment...I would be sooooo pissed!
