The parents of a newborn staying in a hospital in the Philippines were shocked and angered after finding their newborn baby’s mouth had been taped shut.  According to the Sun Star Cebu, parents Ryan Noval and Jasmine Badocdoc confronted hospital staff and were told the newborn’s mouth was taped because it was “crying too loud” and “always asking for milk.”

When mom asked to have the tape removed, she says the nurse told her to do it herself. The tape was on long or right enough that when taken off, some of the skin reportedly came off the child’s lips.  The family has now taken to social media in an effort to raise awareness and get the hospital and authorities to conduct an investigation.
