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.

I have gotten frustrated enough that I understood the impulse but have never even been slightly tempted. That video made me sick and angry.

I don't want to watch the video but I am curious to know what it's about. Is that guy shaking a baby on camera? :(

Never but I had a pretty happy baby. I could never if she was a cryer though.
