Neighbor leaving baby home alone - Should I say something? **UPDATE**
So, I'm friendly with my neighbor and our son's are good friends. When I invite her son over to play, she'll walk him over but leave her 18 month old daughter sleeping in her crib at home. We are about 5 houses away from each other. She doesn't bring a monitor and usually stays and chats for a while. Yesterday she stayed for over an hour!
I've asked her if she's worried that her dd will wake up but she says no - that she always sleeps for 3 hrs. She also says that even if her dd did wake up, she'd just play in her crib. She said that her husband doesn't like it when she leaves the baby home alone because he worries about things like - what if there's a fire! But she says, 'what are the chances of that!' and carries on doing what she doees - leaing her dd home alone asleep.
Does anyone else think this is really strange? I'm not sure if I should be saying something more to her or trying not to chat with her when she stops over but I don't want to be rude. I like chatting with her and having her over but in the back of my mind, I can't stop thinking of her dd home alone.
Should I say something to her or mind my own business?
I suggested that she get a babysitter so she had more free time and didn't have to worry about the baby being home alone (not that she was worried). I gave her a few leads and she said she's going to call them and hire one.
Her hubby is happy to pay for a sitter and hates that she leaves the baby alone even for just a bit. I'm hoping she has a regular sitter by next week!
