Police won't charge family after baby was seen in shocking video puffing on a vape

The child's mother has lashed out at those slamming her on social media to remind them that 'they ain't perfect' either.

An Australian mother that filmed her infant son puffing on her vape will not be charged, New South Wales Police have confirmed.

The mother, believed to be from NSW's mid-north coast was seen smiling while the boy's aunt placed a vape in his mouth.

"Want to try," the woman said before the infant took a toke from the vape.

People around the 11-month-old didn't seem to care that the baby inhaled vapour from the device and then coughed it out.

The video sparked outrage on social media, and has now prompted a police response after concerns were raised for the baby's welfare.

Police confirmed to LADbible that police did attend a home in Kempsey in relation to the incident on Tuesday (February 28) following a concern-for-welfare report regarding the 10-month-old boy.

"Police have spoken with the child’s family and – following advice provided by with medical professionals and other governmental agencies – no further police action will be taken," a police spokesperson confirmed to LADbible.

A family member, who spoke to 7NEWS on the condition of anonymity, condemned their relative for her actions.

"It’s honestly putrid, like I will not say that it’s not because it is," the relative said.

"I removed my [relative] from that situation."

Another family member called the video 'sick' but added the young mum does try 'her best'.

They added: "It was just a stupid mistake that she made with a bunch of friends."

Video footage of the horrifying incident was posted on social media for all to see.

People quickly ripped into the mother for allowing such a shocking incident to happen to her son.

One user wrote: “Who gives their kid a vape, grow up and be a better mother. How can you put the vape up to your own son’s mouth and watch him suck on it and laugh while he’s choking and coughing.”

Another said: "They all deserve to have the baby taken off them and given to someone who desperately wants a child, and then throw them into jail, just disgusting."

A woman on social media, who appears to be the child's mother, took to Facebook to lash out at those roasting her online.

"Every c**t got the hide to sit there and talk about me and my child, take a look in yas (sic) own backyard," she said online, as per 7NEWS.

"You ain’t perfect either so keep that mouth going you ain’t scary, you’re nothing but bums."
