This sounds awful, but if she was going INTO the building, maybe she had stepped out for only a few seconds to put out the trash or something?

I couldn't even take my son a couple of steps away without being bundled up today. The weather is very wicked here today. Cold, and windy

I saw a very young mom with a barefoot child on a freezing day when I was recently traveling in Minneapolis. Then, as fate would have it, she ended up boarding an airlpane a couple of people behind me. We were standing on the jetbridge for quite a while and it was windy and freezing. I was aggrivated as I saw the baby's feet were red and he seemed to be trying to curl them up against the cold, and she seemed completely oblivious. I was tempted to make a snippy remark, but THANKFULLY I instead opted for a smile and a "Let's get that baby up into the plane where it's warm. His feet look really cold." I say THANKFULLY because she and her two children ended up sitting right next to me on the plane. It would have been really awkward if I had criticized her instead of being nice. Turns out she was from a warm climate and was sort of clueless about how to dress her kids for the weather.

Poor Child. The Nanny Is defenitly Retarder and does not care for the child. I hope the mother finds out and Fired the nanny.

Word! It pisses me off to see bundled up nannies with charges that have their teeth chattering and are freezing their asses off. Red feet, are you out of your mind? It was six degrees that day.

OP--Leave a note with the doorman of the building. He will know who the baby is and you will have the peace of mind that the parents got the info.

We should see the kid all warm & cozy, with the Nanny out there with her bare-assed feet ... then maybe she'd be more sympathetic, and know better next time.

Nanny's in doorman buildings should be careful. When I lived in Manhattan, it was the doorman's job to know all the residents in the building and they know quite a bit about their residents' business. There were two families I know of who were tipped off by the doorman about mistreatment of their children at their nanny's hands. (BTW, most doorman buildings have security cams at other entrances, so it's real easy to produce evidence of abuse like this). The nannies were fired and I know the doorman received a particularly large tip from both families for looking after them.

I was going to say "bad nanny" but I see just as many "bad mommies" doing this. I used to drop my little ones off at a prestigious preschool in Mclean, VA and see quite a few mom's walking into the school in freezing weather all bundled up themselves...yet baby is wearing a thin little sleeper and nothing else. I see babies out in the cold with no socks or shoes on all the time. Mostly with moms but yeah, I've seen nannies do it too. Some people just dont get it.

And just today in *cold* Va., I saw a mom come to the school to pick up her 2nd grader, and her 1 y.o. daughter was wearing THIN pajamas and socks - no shoes, and a sweater. I'm sure she was freezing from the waist down.

Surely the intelligence level of the nanny must come into play in situations like this? People with very low IQ's often lack common sense.

Oh, but fg, I beg to differ. I believe it is the exact opposite. People with higher IQs usually lack common sense, and sometimes even social skills.
People like this Nanny ... just plain thoughtless and stupid.
