I received this email a few years back and I was horrified! What kind of mother would beat up her newborn like that! I replied to that woman telling her that she should be thankful and that she did not deserve to be a mother in the first place! I also told her that her attitude towards her baby girl was a clear sign of gender discrimination between her children – she obviously favored her son. I wish I could find that woman and apologize for being so judgmental.
