Pediatrician 's  Response
Hi, a baby rescued from the woods or any abandoned area needs a thorough and careful investigation and work up. Equally important is to understand the medico legal implications. So you need to report this case to the authorities first in case the child deteriorates further. More over the history provided is not consistent as a baby cannot possibly consume grass and why did you leave her without any form of supervision or vigilance ? Nevertheless an urgent hospital admission is warranted.
Take care.
