GILBERT, AZ – If you’ve shopped online, you’ve probably received a friendly reminder that your shopping cart is empty.

What they really want is for you to put something in your cart and buy it.

A two-month-old baby from Gilbert, Arizona probably should wear a sign to remind its mom to make sure her shopping cart is empty.

Two hairstylists found the baby in a shopping cart, still strapped in the car seat.

Miranda Asadoorian was working in her salon when a customer asked her about a baby in a shopping cart outside the door in 100-degree heat.

“I didn't think it was real.” She said. “I mean, I was like, 'no, this girl is crazy.' I felt bad. At first, it kinda looked like, I didn't know there was a baby in there. I was like, 'there is no way someone forgot a baby.' Yeah, they forgot the baby, for a while.”

Police later found the mom and two other kids shopping at a nearby grocery store.

She told cops she forgot to put the kid in the car when she was leaving.

It took her about 40 minutes to figure out she was missing someone, or something.

Cops won’t charge her, though. Apparently, no-harm, no-foul is the way folks roll in Arizona.

All we can say is “good luck, little kid.” Looks like you’ll need it.
