Mom Laced Baby’s Formula With Drug So He Would Sleep
Police are reporting that a Pennsylvania woman laced her baby’s formula with a drug that helps heroin addicts kick the habit so he would sleep.
The (Allentown) Morning Call reports 28-year-old Corinne Barndt told police she drugged her son’s formula six or seven times from November to April.
The drug she is accused of using is buprenorphine (boo-prehn-OR’-feen). It’s a painkiller also used to wean addicts off heroin.
The woman in question has been jailed, charged with child endangerment and reckless endangerment. She’s currently unable to post the $1 million bond.
The 8-month-old’s custody and health status isn’t clear. We will keep you updated.
