I think all the people who voted yes and I just did to this post should be looked into by child services!!!!! Their IP Address should be ran to see where they live.

He was demonstrating that when you shake a baby their brains "scramble" like eggs, and the red dye he used was " blood" cuz the brain also bleeds. And the baby can go blind as well. His dd was shaken at 6 weeks, she's 5 now and she can't see (when he was waving his hand in front of her he was demonstrating she didnt know that's what he was doing) she can't stand or sit. He didnt say who did it that's what I'm curious about- prob a babysitter? Nurse maybe?

What..the...fuck?! Any moron who would even consider doing this, instead of um.. going into another room(after making sure the baby is secure of course) or getting somebody else to help, should have THEIR head explode the second the thought enters it and they reach for the baby!

In the hospital now, they make you watch a video about shaken baby syndrome. I said to the nurses, " the baby's absolutely safe in my house, but do you have any videos on shaken teenagers?? Haha. Seriously, exhaustion can really push you over the edge, but you have to know your breaking point. Put the baby down somewhere safe, collect yourself, call someone on the phone-- anything to change your state of mind. I put on music and I pray. I also run as many times a week as I can. I join an all night gym for 10 $ a month and sneak out when baby's asleep - sometimes 10 or 11- even if I get less sleep, I vent my frustration and I come home calm and ready to deal with things. You have to rejuvenate. Keep reminding yourself this time will pass and you just have to get through. And go easy on yourself- lower your expectations. Don't try to get too much done. Go into survival mode and make sleeping when babies sleep your priority. You don't want to regret a couple bad minutes for the rest of your life.

From what I understand it was her biological father that shook her. Not a nurse or babysitter.

Honestly it has never.I am a VERY patient person and crying never bothered me.My DH was in the army.My 3rd chikd was very premature.The baby had a heart /apeana monitor.He hah VERY bad colic and reflex.Sense my DH was in the military he would have to get at 0500.DH needed sleep to pass PT test and such.I would not only stay up all night with a screaming baby buthis monitor would go off to until sometimes 5or 6am.Then I would get up with my other child at 6or 7am.He has always woke up very early.Then the other child would not nap.Now that I look back I just laugh.Who would have ever though such a tiny baby could make so much noise.I think I felt to bad for the poor baby that I could not help him.I can honestly say I will never understand why parents to that
