I ran into a friend at the shops this morning. She has a 1 year old, but she wasn't with her. I know the child doesn't attend childcare, so I asked if her partner was home, but he wasn't. She said she was just nipping down to pick up a few things while her DD was sleeping in her cot! The shops are only about a 3-4 minute drive from where she lives, but still?!
Is this something you would do? The thought has never crossed my mind! It just doesn't feel right to me...

Leaving sleeping baby at home..alone?!

OMFG! No, no, no, no, NO! Not ever is that a good idea - EVER!

Nope, never. Simple as that. You could just never be sure of 100% safety.

Never EVER. I don't even hang washing out without the baby monitor.
I would be worried that someone might break in or the house burn down, or that I'd be involved in an accident and no one would know that she's home alone.

Nope not cool. You just never know what could happen.

What did you say to her? I would have no problems being completely disgusted in front of her and tell her to go home right away.i mean other than common sense saying that's really unsafe, but does she not know what happened to Maddie McCann?

No not on purpose. I did once do it in a total sleep deprived accident. I went to take dh to work and dd to school. Both of us thought the other had put her in the car. When I realized I didn't have her. I called 000 and asked them to break the door down. Sadly they wouldn't. They I would get there before them. She was safe asleep in her cot. I have never forgiven myself for doing it. There is no way I could do that on purpose.
