      Hospital staff tapes baby's mouth shut

      PHILIPPINES (WZTV/WACH)??The parents of a newborn staying in a hospital in the Philippines were shocked after finding their newborn baby??s mouth been taped shut.

      Ryan Noval and Jasmine Badocdoc were told by the hospital staff that the newborn??s mouth was taped because it was ??crying too loud?? and ??always asking for milk??.

      When the mom asked to have the tape removed, she says the nurse told her to do it herself. She says the tape was on for so long that skin reportedly came off the child??s lips.
