A South Side woman pleaded guilty Monday to aggravated assault of a child, endangering the welfare of a child and reckless endangerment for rubbing feces on her baby's face at Children's Hospital.

Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge Donna Jo McDaniel will sentence Lauren Buzard, 39, on Sept. 2. Her attorney could not be reached for comment.

Police said Buzard tampered with her 6-month-old son's IV line and smeared feces from a dirty diaper on his nasal feeding tube while he was at the Lawrenceville hospital.

Police initially arrested Buzard in August when a surveillance camera inside her son's room caught her on tape. She was released without bond, but arrested again in January and denied bail when she failed to appear in court.
