How Could You Keep A Baby Safe?

edited February 2014 in The Walking Dead

Can you keep a baby safe on the run? Seems to me you'd need to find somewhere pretty secure fast.
What about baby food? Anyone know the expiration date for it?
It's in glass jars so I'm presuming pretty long.

  • It can work when you have a settlement like the prison they had in the TV series. On the open road i don´t think its duable.

    Letting someone else but me take care of it. That's the best way for me to keep that thing alive. I am sure if my carelessness won't killt it, my annoyance over it will eventually do the trick.

  • This. A group can be a big help in raising and protecting the baby.

  • Put it up in a tree? I don't know.

    That would a great idea if you want to use it as bait...which is a terrible idea.

  • I'm not a parent okay?! I tried.

  • Rock-a-bye baby, your cradle is green, mother's a nobleman, father's a queen.

  • +1 for your name.

  • Nah its cool man, I'm no parent either XD

  • They don't have to eat baby food, in fact they don't start eating that sort of thing until 4-6 months old. Before that it's nothing but milk. If the mother was present & getting enough to eat the baby would be getting milk from her. Otherwise powdered baby milk keeps for a hell of a long time so if you could get hold of some you could keep it alive. From around 6 months on it can eat reasonably normal food – mashed up but basically nothing special. The biggest problem would be hygiene – how do you sterilize bottles? What do you do if the baby gets sick? Since walkers are attracted by sound if the baby cries at the wrong time you'd be pretty screwed.

  • by letting tyreese take care of the baby, hammertime will keep it safe :D

  • Clearly, you cover the mouth and nose with your hand and look maniacal while ignoring all else around you. That is the only way to do it safely...

  • You got some lessons from Lizzie from the tv series? I was lol-ing through that scene, i'm sorry but It was just so silly XD

  • Babies and zombies are kinda the same thing.They both live off the souls of living people.So yeah.

  • Have a designated caretaker in case we run into trouble (ie. the mother), keep a lot of formula and antibiotics handy, and find a safe and non-terrifying place to settle.

    Oh, and I'd brain all you fuckers joking about killing babies.

    That scene was awful! I kept thinking, "What a sick little girl..." :(

    Still, I had always thought that Lizzie was the one who had done Karen and the other person in and Carol simply took the wrap. This helped confirm my theory just a smidge.

  • I agree. I mean seriously people -_-

  • How many babies does it take to paint a house?

  • It pretty much confirms it actually lol Carol's too nice to kill innocents just like that.

    Judging from the walking dead give the Baby to clem and sarah and leave them alone in the forest back to back

  • That scene was really really wrong. If the baby died like that I would have thrown the TV out the window (only because I watch it at a friend's house).

    I doubt if Lizzy could have dragged the bodies out there without help. But that's an interesting theory...

  • You cant protect babys! You have to eat it! You thought it was a rabbit that clem and christa grilled?!
    Plot twist: It was christas baby!

    Doesn't a mother breastfeed for the first several month/first year or so? Then you wouldn't really need to worry about food that much. Plus, you don't need physical baby food; baby food is basically a mush of.... stuff. You just need to find an alternative. How do you think people had babies BEFORE baby food? So it wouldn't be that hard, you would just need to keep it quite when traveling in dense areas where walkers can hide.

    Christa must have liked it wild, huh?

  • Mothers can breast feed for a few years but the only catch is they have to be fed and healthy too..
