    That would distress me. Poor baby. It makes me so sad to think about it being left there for most of the day

    When I was struggling quite badly I didn't get frustrated but hen my toddler spent a lot of time to himself while I just layed there, he wasn't left crying etc and had his needs met but I wasn't doing the playing / interacting etc bit either

    I'd either report or invite myself over with a coffee and a hello and see what's up then base my decision on that
    Thank you very much for sharing. I just always assumed that someone was struggling would be visibly upset. It's certainly given me something to think about.

    It scared the poo out of me when I saw the parents doing this. It's wrong in my opinion
    I did think of that style of parenting actually!

    So tonight the baby stayed out in the doorway, crying little bits on and off, until just before 9pm! It was dark outside!

    So long as I don't get called in to work tomorrow, I actually have nothing on except for school drop off/pick up and activities drop off/pick up in the afternoon. So I'm going to keep a close eye on them tomorrow. If it's still like this before I school pick up I will report.
    I actually just looked up the website for this housing, they say they are partners with a whole heap of different community/charity organisations to assist their residents, and they also have a report line for 'antisocial behaviour'. So that makes me feel a lot better, that I have somewhere to report it to.

    Thanks for all the advice, it's been very helpful!

    ETA: you can even report ir as a noise complaint issue to the police. Then if they go & check it out, they can assess the situation & see if the baby is in danger & seems neglected.
    My thoughts exactly. Call the police first, they can call around and call in social services etc as needed. My heart is breaking for that poor baby

    Now that the OP has clarified the amount of time baby is left out there I would definitely report it. I didn't have that info initially. As I said, better to report unnecessarily than not report a dangerous situation.

    It actually reminds me of babywise parenting (what I understand of it anyway as ive never read the books but have a couple of friends who follow it). they've done CIO with their babies from a week or so old. I definitely dont agree with it.

    Please make a report to FACS.
    It is not only anti- social behaviour but a potential child protection concern . Infants under age 12 months are the most at risk of abuse and neglect. by reporting it, you could be helping this mum by getting her the support she needs to look after that baby.


    In NSW the helpline no is 132 111

    I would report it to DOCS and the police. I hope the baby is ok.

    Sounds like neglect to me. Please report it. Just reading about it is distressing enough
