Eight-months-old Xiao Bao needed more than 100 stitches after his mother attacked him with scissors at their home in Xuzhou.

A baby boy was stabbed 90 times in the face by his own mom after he accidentally bit her during breastfeeding, police said.

Xiao Bao - who is just 8 months old - was left needing more than 100 stitches after the brutal scissors attack at his home in Xuzhou, eastern China.

The tiny infant was found lying in a pool of his own blood, in the yard, by an uncle who quickly rushed him to hospital.

Doctors operated and now say they believe he will survive the ordeal.

It's not clear if cops have detained the mom, who is currently undergoing psychiatric evaluation to determine whether she is mentally ill.

Neighbors have reportedly pleaded with local government officials to take the child away, reports the International Business Times.

But staff say they are yet to make a decision, though Bao has two uncles who would be able to take care of him.
