Mother who left baby alone at shops: 'You're unfit'

YOUR SAY: To the young woman shopping at the bakery in Middle Ridge on Monday.

I watched you cradle your almost newborn in your arms on the way to your SUV.

You secured your precious cargo in a baby seat and then returned to the bakery.

After returning to the car a second time you then again went back to the bakery.

All this time, your baby was alone in your vehicle.

Do you not know it is illegal to leave a child unattended in a car?

Especially a defensive, wee babe on a warm morning.

Is it okay to leave your child alone, even for a minute?

This is not a scientific poll. The results reflect only the opinions of those who chose to participate.

Then to make matters worse, you drove off - hands free - allowing your car to coast around the parking lot while your two hands were re-affixing your pony tail.

You were driving in a life threatening manner - shame on you.

Young lady, you are an unfit mother and need to amend your ways before your precious little baby comes to harm.
