Oops, She Screwed Up Again
Exclusively from Star Magazine:
On April 7, when Britney Spears and Kevin Federline realized that their baby, Sean Preston, had been sleeping more than usual, panic bells went off. Just six days earlier, the 7-month-old had taken a major fall from his high chair, a tumble that had his parents worried that he might have been critically injured.
They had every right to fret. After rushing Sean to a nearby hospital, they discovered he had a minor skull fracture (sometimes called a "scalp fracture" in babies), and a blood clot. And the doctors weren't the only ones to take notice! The next day, the Department of Children and Family Services began looking into the incident.
The Spears-Federline clan escaped disaster, but not their obligation to explain themselves to the authorities. On April 8, L.A. sheriff's deputies arrived at Britney's Malibu home to investigate a child-abuse claim against Britney and Kevin in relation to the head injury. Such an investigation isn't unusual. According to California law, whenever a baby is brought into the hospital with a serious injury, the Department of Children and Family Services is alerted.
Jesus. Can I just say that although I'm not a parent, I know better than this moron? Let me rant for a minute. You can yell at me if you want. I like reading comments. I'm a part-time nanny for four young children, and today one of them fell and cut her forehead. It was a little cut, and I put Neosporin on it with a band-aid and held ice on it for ten minutes, then gave her Children's Advil. OK, so maybe I'm a little overprotective, but GEEZE! To let your kid fall from a high chair, first of all, is so irresponsible. They have straps that are SUPPOSED TO BE USED. Anyone who doesn't strap their child in and either push them to the table or snap in the plastic tray that is on some chairs right away so they have something in front of them to block them from falling in addition to the straps is negligent. Sean Preston is an INFANT. Either Britney dropped him or she left him in the chair unsupervised. Either way, bad parenting. And to not notice anything strange for SIX DAYS?!!?? My God. I really hope this kid survives to see his first birthday.
