I’ll go out on a limb here at administer some medical advice.
Is this a case of a home remedy gone wrong? A father puts bleach in his baby’s formula to cure congestion.
The 2-month-old girl hospitalized after authorities say her father mixed bleach in her baby formula was expected to be released from the hospital Tuesday, a Department of Children and Families spokesperson said.
Meanwhile, a judge has ruled the father, Carron Washington, cannot to have any contact with baby Kaelynn.
Washington admitted feeding Kaelynn bleach in an effort to help her breathe easier.
Washington, who said he’s a “pre-med” student at the College of Central Florida, said he would never intentionally hurt his daughter and only added less than a capful of bleach to about two ounces of her formula because a classmate from school told him she used the remedy with her child.
Whoa. As our tipster David Wood writes: “I’m a little concerned about the quaility of pre-med students at College of Central Florida now.” How could anyone think that is a good idea?!
But just a reminder, people willingly take bleach to cure all sorts of illnesses. It’s disgusting. Get the word out. It’s pretty sad that you would have to state the obvious.
