Origin[edit | edit source]

Margaret Waters (1835 - 1870) was an English serial killer hanged for the crime of baby farming, the practice of taking other women's children for money. Usually the after effect of baby farming is infanticide as the money is received and the children ignored. Waters would often drug and starve the infants in her care and is believed to have killed at least nineteen children.

Effects[edit | edit source]

When placing a child in the high chair the parent loses all interest in the child’s wellbeing, cutting any sense of protection.
