After reading the replies, I don't think I will watch that video. I cry when I see that lady who does baby yoga, flinging those poor babies around. My mom teaches special needs and one of her students was a shaken baby syndrome survivor. He died just last at 17 month from minor complications. =(
My second child had colic and there were times that I just cried with her or had to walk away and scream into a pillow. I lost two jobs because my ex called me at work saying I needed to get home now because he couldn't handle her...and I'd hear my baby crying in the background.
After 7 kids I have gained even more patience and I just count my blessings that I'm even able to have my children because there are many women out there who would do anything to have a crying baby if it meant they had a baby to call their own.
Yes, my first. Well, I knew I would not shake her but I put her in her crib and sat in the garage for an HOUR, yes an hour... to collect my thoughts. I went back in relaxed and she finally fell asleep after nine hours of crying.
