I understand what you're trying to say; however, I think when the safety of a child is concerned, the adults (especially the mother) need to clarify who will be watching the child. I also wouldn't leave my child just sitting on a counter by itself when I walk away. I would take that child and place it in the arms of the responsible person to let them know I am passing the responsibility of this tiny person to them. That way, there's no "miscommunication".
The baby probably ended up on the floor face down because of the dogs pulling her off the counter.
This whole thing makes me feel physically ill. It's a preventable death, and the mother (and possibly the other adults in the house that day) needs to be held accountable for the death of this precious life.
