Bad Mama

Patrice Smith was stressed by a fussy baby on Oct. 2 and had a headache that was growing worse, she told police, according to a criminal complaint filed Tuesday.

She was trying to keep her cool, she said, trying to keep her baby’s crying from disturbing her sleeping boyfriend and the neighbors at her North Side apartment. Smith, 22, said she just wanted to take some pain reliever for her worsening headache.

But to quiet her baby, she said, she stuffed a pink baby sock into the mouth of 6-month-old Nataria.

It may be dark out there to me right now, but it isn’t that dark.

Hearing your baby cry non-stop for days, weeks, and sometimes months at a time can drive you nearly insane, but thank god, most of us have something in our brain that clicks on at the right time and keeps us from stuffing socks in our babies mouths.
