An eight month-old infant, Xiao Bao, survived being stabbed ninety times with a pair of scissors, with the majority of the injuries in his chubby face. Who could stab a helpless baby? Only the boys own mother, who was breastfeeding her son when he bit her, sending the mother into a fury that left her son hospitalized.

The mother, who remains unidentified, lives with the child’s two uncles in poverty, and the family makes a living recycling rubbish. Returning home, one of the uncles saw Xiao Bao lying in a pool of blood in the yard of the family’s home and rushed him to a hospital in the China’s Jiangsu Province.


Doctors at the medical facility used more than 100 stitches to stop Xiao Bao’s bleeding, and, as the photos show, the majority of the wounds were on his cheeks and around his chin. It is believed that Xiao Bao will survive the attack.

It is unknown whether local police have detained the mother, or whether she has confessed to the stabbing, but it is known that authorities will allow Xiao Bao to return to his mother’s care. The Daily Mail reports that neighbors have pleaded to three different government agencies to remove the child from the home, but the government considers the child’s two uncles to be fit legal guardians.

It is unknown whether the mother is mentally sound. Mental health issues are rarely addressed in China, and therapy and medication are not as common in the country as they are in the United States. Experts believe that the mother may be suffering from post-partum depression, which affects mothers who recently gave birth to children and can be treated successfully.
