After her mother bleached her skin, a baby was diagnosed with a chronic renal illness.
Because she is darker-skinned than her siblings, the mother allegedly chose to bleach her baby's skin.
According to a Twitter user @Tejumola_who relayed the terrible news on the microblogging network, the innocent youngster is now gravely unwell and on the point of death.
"How do you bleach your baby's skin up to the point where they develop chronic kidney disease before age 10? An innocent child is on the brink of death due to the parents' recklessness, and I just can't make sense of it.
"When I say I hate paediatrics, most people assume it's cause I don't like kids, but it's because I just can't stand parents. This should be a criminal offence, a defenceless human left in your care should not be treated this way.
Ignorance is no longer a good enough excuse. You are telling me you want to "bring out the baby's colour cause she's not as fair as her siblings." You know what? I'm exhausted. I can't.
"A woman from my former church wouldn't touch her baby within the first few hours of life because she was convinced that he wasn't hers.
"Her reason: "He's just too black" Imagine not feeling the warmth of your mother fresh out of the womb because of this…This is a woman who is dark-skinned with a husband with the same complexion. She said her first children did not come out that "black". The tweet read.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
