    What a disgustingly horrific death for this poor little baby girl! Her 18 year young mother has a long life ahead to think about her negligent acts.

    How drunk do you have to be on a regular basis to keep a bucket by the bed after you go out partying?

    Makes you wonder if there are any friends or family who gave a crap about this poor baby.
    Please help find Gerry Largay, 66, missing on the Appalachian Trail in Maine.

    I just read this story and it is made sickto my stomach. It's so horribly disgusting. And she didn't realize what happened to the baby until the next afternoon? The mother must have slept all day. Poor baby.. I hope the mother is held accountable.
    Just my opinion of course!!

    Wow, I don't know what to say. I was hoping she was sick b/c I remember when my twins were 3 months old my husband and I had a stomach virus. My husband was in the hospital for dehydration and i was home sick with the babies. i out of nowhere became violently ill and had the horrifying realization that I was unable to care for my children, i recall putting them in the playpen by the bedand throwing up in their diaperpail. I called someone to come get them shrtly after that. I was hoping that was the case and not that she was a stupid drunken twit.

    Was she out partying the night before? I don't remember reading that.... IF she was... she should be punished far more than "up to 7 years".
