  • This is disgusting behaviour! Just reading this makes me mad


  • I’m not sure the teenage girl is the boy’s Mother. Maybe she is an older sibling. From one of the texts I get the impression there was more than one person involved. Regardless of who the girl is I hope DOCS were notified and the little boy taken to a safe place even if it is responsible relatives or friends until something permanent is arranged.


  • A plastic bag over a baby’s face…..oh my god! I hope this child has been removed from their care and not returned until a complete investigation has been done and they’re shown to fed innocent


  • I hope DOCS were notified and this is being investigated.


  • This does not sound good – Im glad the police were alerted.


  • That’s not a game. He could have died. Not funny at all. :-(


  • This is why we need a supportive network. Not defending the people doing this to the poor toddler, they deserve any punishment they get and probably more, but just maybe if they had someone to “babysit” while they had an hour or a few to “chill out”, they may not have even got to this point.
