‘Distressing’ video appears to show baby being forced to drink wine, as mum is sentenced


The baby, who was less than 18 months old at the time, is shown sitting in a high chair being forced to drink from a wine bottle. In the video, the bottle is placed in her mouth and her head seems to be tipped back as she drinks from it.

She then seems upset as she reacts to the taste of the liquid.

The woman’s mother appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court in Monday, where she admitted creating the footage along with her friend on January 20 of last hear, the Scottish Record reported.

The two, both from Midlothian and both aged in their mid-20s, originally faced child protection charges over the incident.

However, in the end, each pleaded guilty to a charge of behaving in a threatening and abusive manner by participating in the video’s creation.

The mother, in whose house the incident occurred, was ordered to do 21 months of supervision under a community payback order.

Sheriff Noble placed her friend under 12 months of supervision, explaining that it was she “who administered the drink to the child”.

The child in question is now living with one of her mother’s relatives.

Ian Tweedie, the mother’s defence agent, and Jennifer Cameron, acting on behalf of the friend, said each said their clients had suffered with mental health difficulties.
