We don't have to put ourselves in the situation because there are people in the world who have common sense and who are also responsible enough to know NOT to leave a defenseless newborn unattended. The nurses at hospitals are required BY LAW to go over things like how to wash a baby, feed a baby, and not to ever leave a baby alone for anything. You aren't even supposed to turn your back on a baby for one second. I'm sure she is suffering, but if I knew I was the cause of my child's death I would feel terrible too.
