Worst parent nominee: feed the baby morphine

Münchausen syndrome by proxy is a mental illness characterized by causing illness in someone, usually one's child, in order to draw attention to oneself. This woman gave her 2-month-old baby morphine to get the father's attention.

She was already on probation for giving morphine to her other baby (then 10 months old) to get the attention of that baby's father.

She got 7 1/2 years in prision. She should also have her tubes tied.
