The car seat lady is back in the news again after it was reported the woman had used a “pumpkin-shaped” pillow to keep her baby warm during the winter months.
The incident was sparked when the mother took the woman’s two-year-old baby to the doctor to have her airway blocked by an oxygen mask.
The woman said she had been told she could not get the mask off and that her child’s respiratory system would have to be treated.
Ms Jones said she felt very upset and wanted to make sure the woman knew she would be blamed if her child died.
“She didn’t realise I was there,” Ms Jones told the ABC.
“The oxygen mask had been on for so long she couldn’t even move her eyes to look at it, and she said ‘I can’t breathe’.”
She was absolutely devastated.
“When she said this I felt a little bit bad, but I said ‘it’s not going to change anything, I’ve got to keep doing what I’m doing’.” Ms Jones was taken to hospital where she was told her baby would be kept warm in a separate room.
“There’s a lot of things that can go wrong with this,” she said.
“I felt like I had been lied to by my mother.”
Ms Jones and the mother are now appealing for help in finding the mother who took the baby.
“You’re the one who has to deal with it,” Ms Smith said.
The ABC understands the woman did not have a medical degree, but Ms Jones has a Bachelor of Science in occupational health and safety from the University of Sydney.
“It’s not a professional degree, it’s just a diploma, so it’s no doubt she’s not trained as a doctor,” Ms Thompson said.
