    Please keep this baby in your prayers each day. The father seem to have had a problem being around the baby and should have not been left alone with it. Interesting why the mother left the baby with him in the first place. I just bet the flags were all around and she just ignored them.

    The baby continues to be on life support and in a coma. The father, term used loosely, was mad because the teething baby was crying. No tears for him.

    Please keep good vibes, prayers, or thoughts for the poor innocent child.

    He is probably crying, thinking of how he's going to be treated in prison.

    I hope the baby will be okay and put in a loving foster home.

    The answer is very simple! He didn't want the child in the first place! Its so sad, it happens so often these days!

    I just can't get how or why anyone would want to hurt a baby, or any child in general.

    He looks like he's either been crying or he's drunk..
