Yep. Because how does a mom, of all people, forget her own baby??!? One that she carried for nine months.

My wife and I came home from Walmart and our 5 yo wasn't there. We had forgotten that we had taken him with us, and had to drive back there an find him in the toy department.

Yes, I'm old, and I remember there were times in America when that could be, and was, done. Maybe Saudi Arabia is a country where it still is. If it is, it is odd you would judge them badly for it.

I'm always leaving my baby somewhere. Gas station, beauty parlor, tanning salon, the colonoscopy suite, in the middle of the intersection of Shea and Scottsdale Rd... You guys have NO IDEA how easy they are to forget.
It is tough job, that’s why you don’t leave them anywhere. I never did leave any kids anywhere. My husband one time forgot to put a diaper on my daughter before he put her to bed, he paid for it dearly in the morning. I was on business trip, had to stay at my sister’s house.

I raised 2 kids, never forgot them anywhere. Now if I bring my grandson I don't forget him. He lives with us so I could have him often but my grand daughter doesn't live with us, I could have her too and have never forgotten her. Ever.

How does a parent forget a kid?

I’m pretty sure that I never forgot my two, but I think that it can happen, if a parent is distracted, or her/his mind is elsewhere, although obviously it should NEVER happen, but surely no one does it on purpose.
One of our nieces had dropped in, with her 3 y.o., around 3 years ago.
“Well, I gotta go”, she said, “gotta pick Danny (her husband), up.”
She went out to her car, we were waving from the first floor window, (this is one up from the ground in U.K.), when we heard a bump from the second, (top), floor.
My wife called, “Rosie, are you up there?”
“Yes, I’ve been to the toilet”, (we don’t call it bathroom here), said the 3 y.o.
I opened the sliding window, and called to our niece, “Kelly, have you got everything?”
She patted her pockets, looked in her bag, and said, “Keys, phone, yes I have.”
I said, “What usually goes in that kiddy car seat?”
“OH MY GOD!” she said, “for Chrissake don’t tell Danny!”

Exactly. It happens, and I can see a young tired stressed out mom doing it in an unfamiliar situation, like a strange airport. I can also see her completely losing it in midair when she realizes what she's done.

A little overkill. Jeddah ground staff could have phoned the woman's family to come down and pick up the baby. There was virtually no risk of harm.

My first call as the pilot after the call to return to the airport would have been to have someone on the ground call Child Protective Services. You board a plane and then wait and wait and wait for the remainder of the people to board, then safety check and taxi and finally lift off. It has to be a minimum of 10 minutes that you are on the ground and the fact that your baby is missing does not occur to you? God help that child.

God is not in the picture. Alllah has this one under control. People faithful to Allah have done everything right, so far.

I say God, another says, Allah, another says Budda, etc. I could care less who or what you call that higher power but that child needs to be under the watchful eye of a higher power with a mother like her.
