On the third day, the girl completely exhausted and was ready to return the “baby”. Olivia had to take care of the baby immediately every time he cried and find out the reason.
“It seems like an easy task, but then it repeats even at night. The child will Wake her up crying, then she will fall asleep, and then he cries again in an hour”, — the girl’s mother told.
— My favorite moment was when she came to my room yesterday, at about three in the morning. She cried real tears when she fed him from the bottle and begged me to help her because she wanted to get some sleep. Thanks, but no, — the woman added.
