    Never ever ever! And yes I damn well would judge a parent who did this!!

    There is 10001 things that could happen and not just to the baby!

    What if the Mother was in a car crash on the way home? No one would know the baby was at home!

    I'm shocked. I'm disgusted.

    My maternal instincts are going wild reading this. How could anyone be so cool and collected about leaving a baby at home alone? Gosh I'm frantic just thinking of it.

    There was a thread on here a couple of years ago where a mum did something similar, except she would leave both kids asleep alone in the mornings while she went for an hour run or something ridiculous.
    Yep also a Mum who left a sleeping baby to go pick up her toddle from childcare

    That's what I couldn't get my head around. Okay fine, she made the choice to leave her at home. But she didn't appear to be stressed or rushing! Young kids are just so defenceless.

    Thanks for the responses & scenarios you have all posted. I will rattle them off to her when I see her again. I don't think she is a bad or neglectful mother, I just don't think she thought it through..at all

    What an extremely poor decision.
    Unfortunately we live in a world where bad things can/do happen.....house fires,car accidents, kids going missing to name a few......you just have to watch the news!
    the fact that she was quite carefree about it is concerning.

    Default Leaving sleeping baby at home..alone?!

    Id starve before I left DD sleep/alone in the house.

    I don't believe it when she said she "felt funny" about leaving her.

    I think she's done it before and she will do it again. She obviously doesn't think there is anything wrong with her actions.

    Some people's stupidity makes me really cranky.

    Hell no. No way no how.

    Dd is 16 months and never never never.
    Furthest I will go is to take the bins out which is about 30m and I take my baby video monitor.

    OP i would text back now with something like 'thanks for writing back, i just kept thinking what if you had an accident and no one knew bub was at home' or 'i just kept havi g the Maddie McCann story buzzing in my head all afternoon' or 'i jusr couldnt get out of my head the story i saw the other day where it only takes x minutes for a house to burn down'. Just while the topic is fresh in her mind

    I know she is your friend, but what she did was extremely neglectful. No need to think about it, it just is.

    I don't want to judge her, but going on how calm you felt she was, I doubt this was the first (or last) time.
