Did a Chinese Mum Stab Her Breastfeeding Infant 90 Times?

Mom Stabs Son 90 Times With Scissors After Being Bitten While Breastfeeding

Comment: Mom Stabs Son 90 Times With Scissors After Being Bitten While Breastfeeding
It’s an article I’ve seen today and the wording is weird and not like it’s legit. It says he is stabbed 90 times then it says he was stabbed 15 times. Could you clarify any of this.

On 13 May 2015, the website DailyMediaBuzz published an article titled “Mom Stabs Son 90 Times With Scissors After Being Bitten While Breastfeeding”. The link got a boost from comedian D.L. Hughley, who shared it to his popular Facebook page on 14 May 2015.

According to the article, an infant in China remained hospitalized (at the time of its publication) due to injuries sustained at the hands of his mother:

Eight-month-old Xiao Bao was discovered by his uncle in a pool of blood Needed 100 stitches after the incident; he is now recovering in hospital Reports say his mother does not suffer from any mental illnesses

Off the bat the claim was not only poorly written, but largely inaccurate. The story (from which the May 2015 article was sourced) appeared first in Britain’s Daily Mail and was later aggregated by International Business Times, the New York Daily News, and the Mirror in July 2013. As such, the baby was unlikely to be “recovering in hospital” nearly two years after the claim’s first appearance.

Moreover, most of the articles published in July 2013 referenced a single (unsupported) item in the Daily Mail. The original asserted:

An eight-month-old boy is lucky to be alive after he was stabbed 90 times by his mother, mostly in the face, for biting her while she was breastfeeding.

Xiao Bao needed more than 100 stitches after the incident in Xuzhou, eastern China’s Jiangsu Province.


FULL STORY

The infant lives with his mother and two uncles, who make a living recycling rubbish. It was one of the uncles who discovered Xiao Bao lying in a pool of blood in the yard of their home and rushed him to hospital.

The child’s mother later confessed that she stabbed the baby after he bit her during breastfeeding.
Neighbours have pleaded with the local government to take the baby away, but they have said that they will not.

Apparently, they said that there was no confirmation the mother was suffering from a mental illness and said, regardless, the baby still has two guardians in the form of his two uncles.

Mental illness remains a relatively closed topic in modern China, and neither medication nor modern psychiatric treatment is widely used.
An analysis of mental health issues in four Chinese provinces, published in 2009 in the British medical journal The Lancet, estimated that 91 per cent of the 173million Chinese adults that were believed to suffer mental problems never receive professional help.
