    This
    Or she tried to climb out of her cot and fall. Or woke up and cried until she vommited choked, you know the everyday stuff.

    I just asked if she thought she'd be okay. She said, yeah she sleeps really well in the morning. Then we left each other. What made it worse, was that she was clearly enjoying her childfree moment. I still feel a bit sick actually..

    I would too. I wonder how often she does that! If it's more than a once off, I'd call that neglect and just plain dumb.

    Omg! Never ever ever would I do that!
    I don't even go outside or shower without the baby monitor. I'm appalled someone would do this - do they not have any common sense. Anything could happen!

    Never would I do this. What if someone broke in? House caught on fire? The parent was involved in an accident at the shops? So many what ifs!!!!

    it seems from the conversation, that this is not an unusual thing for this person to do. !!!! gosh I would think twice before I would leave any child at home alone, maybe 10 or over, but only one year old. oh my God, no . marie
