Not saying this is child abuse, just kinda careless... I mean I'm sure the dog wouldn't mean any harm but it's huge and heavy and that is a baby. If something startled that dog and it got up quick that baby's back might not handle the pressure... just sayin'. No harm in being overly cautious on this one people. If the dog however is extremely gentle and cautious of the fragility of the child then I guess, let'r rip.
