Mum charged after police find allegedly neglected baby boy 'seriously malnourished'

A NSW mother has been charged with failing to provide for her baby, after he was found allegedly in an emaciated condition.

The baby boy was found by police on March 4 at a home in Lavington, while officers responded to a domestic violence report.

When officers arrived they found three children in the home, including the four-month-old.

NSW Police allege the officers were so concerned for the well-being of the child they immediately called paramedics for assistance.

The baby was rushed to Albury Base Hospital.

Police allege the child was seriously malnourished and suffering from neglect.

Detectives are investigating the incident and on Tuesday it was revealed a 22-year-old woman had been arrested.

The woman has since been charged with failing to provide for a child and causing danger of death.

She has been granted conditional bail to appear in Albury Local Court on May 15.

The baby boy, another 17-month-old boy and a seven-year-old girl are now in care.
