    Default At a loss what should I do

    Id be reporting to docs and the cops immediately. Stuff the parents. That baby needs protecting and neither of the parents are doing their responsibilities.

    Yeah agree with Pp. stuff the parents. Ring the cops. Step in and save that baby. And probably end up saving the mothers life too. How horrible of a man.

    if you call the police and they see a child in the house they report it to who ever the child safety people in your area are....it is mandatory that any domestic violence where a child is in the house gets reported. It doesnt mean anyone will help them though or take the baby. I lived through dv for 4 years with children (including one being a baby and the rest verylittle) and no child protection unit ever came to speak to me. I did get out eventually but it takes some time for a person in this situation to do that. hopefully she does find her way out for her and her bubs safety.

    All reports to child protection are kept anonymous. You can check this with them when you call before giving any info.

    What a difficult situation. That poor baby must be terrified with all of that fighting.

    It's all about giving them the right information so they can act on it. In qld the information is screened and has to meet certain thresholds. Be really specific about what you have seen and heard. How you know the baby is there and at risk. And if you can get the police out there while it's happening, it will give the child protection officer a lot more evidence to work on.

    I would report it, as horrible as it is the baby is better off in a loving safe home than with its parents. You won't be able to forgive yourself if something happens to her or the baby and you shouldn't have to live with that guilt.
    I'm sorry you are in this situation, it's horrible but that little bub needs a loving, devoted and safe home.

    I can't see any reasonable reason NOT to call docs or the police!

    Call the police and docs. Why haven't her parents called docs? Babies can't be helped if no one knows.

    Call docs & report it. How sad for the poor little baby, imagine how scared he must be when they fight

    Hopefully he will be given to her parents.
