  3. Sometimes you just have to walk away and let them cry.

  4. It aint going to lick itself on July 6th, 2012
  5. At least he cares.Shudda brought a book withy him.

  7. It ain’t going, letting kids cry it out stresses them out and reduces the amount of hormones going through their brains causing brain cells to die.

  9. Way to cute, what a great Dad !!!!!!!

  10. DeDe on July 6th, 2012
  11. Looks like daddy is wrapped around her little finger.

  13. I’m a dad of 3 now grown kids. Not once did we have to let them cry themselves to sleep. It isn’t that hard to sit the kid in your lap and let her go to sleep and then put her to bed. Sticking a little kid in a dark room, alone, is the stupidest idea so-called civilized people have come up with. And no, I’m not some kind of back to nature tree-hugger nit wit

  14. why not on July 7th, 2012
  15. All this did is show that kid that all they have to do to get their way is scream and make noise until someone gets annoyed enough to come and give you what you want. That being said, there were other options to accomplish the same thing. Like holding the kid in a rocking chair until they fall asleep then putting them in bed. There should be no reason for an adult to crawl into a crib with a baby just to shut them up.

  17. I’ve done this and every single time it amazes me that a grown adult can fall asleep in the child size crib

  18. Doc on July 7th, 2012
  19. I just can’t believe there is still someone who doesn’t know that having bumpers around the inside of the cot is a risk factor for SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome)!

  20. Deep Thought on July 7th, 2012
  21. That child is pretty old to be at risk for SIDS- she’s old enough to stand up and crawl around. Babies are at most at risk for SIDS when they are unable to move themselves out of a compromising position.

  22. Caro on July 7th, 2012
  23. Ash, it looks like your parents let too many of your brain cells die.

  24. Common Sense on July 7th, 2012
  25. If you can’t cite evidence, make it up! Reduces the amount of hormones going through their brains, causing brain cell death, indeed. Which hormones are these, and how do we know brain cells are dying for lack of them? Are scientists regularly sampling brain cells from crying and non-crying babies, to document the loss of cells in the crying babies? Yeah, right.

  26. Jessica on July 7th, 2012
  27. Deep Thought, SIDS really isn’t much of a risk in an infant old/strong enough to stand up in a crib. It’s primarily a risk for a child who can’t turn over yet. It’s quite possible the bumpers were added later, when the child was pulling up.

  28. TychaBrahe on July 7th, 2012
  29. I thought the people on this site were internet saavy enough to look information up rather than me having to spam the page with links. Deep thought is half correct. The crib bumpers are a risk of suffocation, not sids but they are a risk. Since you people aren’t capable of doing research yourselves, here are 3 articles that aren’t hard to find or read.

  30. ash on July 8th, 2012
  31. all you have created is a rod for your back and a spoilt brat of a child who will still be doing this crap till she/he is 18, get use to that look of frustration on your face…put in bed, walk out, she cries walk in lay her down DO NOT SPEAK,walk out, keep repeating except make the time between coming back and laying her down longer and longer .. pandering to a spoilt brat at this age will only make her worse and less bearable when shes outside the home and why should the rest of us put up with your FAILURES

  32. Jeannine on July 8th, 2012
  33. oh and crying NEVER hurt a baby however parents like this do hurt them, babies need routine, discipline and parents who are actually willing to be just that PARENTS not pussies to be pushed around by their children, no wonder there are so many spoilt brats in this world who think they can do what they want to do and you only have to look at this perfect example

  34. Jeannine on July 8th, 2012
  35. what kinda dumbass uploads a video like this?? oh yea that guy…he needs more attention I think he should kill himself. glad this is not the video where he’s wearing a diaper in crib spanking the falaffle

  36. jj on July 8th, 2012
  37. yes deep thought bumpers cause sids….g fuck yourself

  38. jj on July 8th, 2012
  39. The idiotic notion that crying is harmful to babies makes me want to forcibly sterilize any moron who actually believes such bullshit. Yes, you should respond when your NEWBORN cries. NEWBORNS cry for a reason- when they’re hungry, wet, dirty, or in pain, and should not be left to cry it out. Babies this child’s age have the mental capacity to figure out that if someone comes running every time they cry, all they have to do is throw a fit to get their way. Giving in to crying fits at this age does nothing but teach them that you’re their bitch & they’re the boss.

    All this ridiculous hippie crap like attachment parenting, co-sleeping, running at every whimper, and breastfeeding until f*cking kindergarten are directly responsible for all the spoiled, entitled brats we have nowadays & all the shitty parents who think it’s “cute” when their precious little snowflake throws food at other people in restaurants. It’s MUCH easier to raise a well-behaved, well-adjusted child when you start setting boundaries & using age-appropriate discipline early on than it is to rehabilitate an older child who was raised to think the world revolves around them.

    And BTW- literally EVERYTHING kills brain cells. BREATHING too fast kills brain cells. You’re not gonna raise the next Einstein just by dropping everything every time your baby cries. Christ.

  41. My wife did this with my daughter when my daughter was recovering from her surgery in the hospital. It was more comfortable then that stupid fold out chair.

  42. Jeff on July 8th, 2012
  43. JJ et. al., what I said was cot bumpers are a risk factor in SIDS, i.e there is an established correlation between SIDS and the presence of bumpers. Now, correlation does not necessarily mean causation, but if it is known that cot bumpers are present in a significant proportion of SIDS cases, then surely the prudent thing to do is not to have cot bumpers.
    Caro, you are correct, but my understanding the risk is less for children this age, but by no means gone. I seem to recall news stories of SIDS cases in babies nearly a year old; if I can find sources, I’ll post them.
    Lastly, the elevation and angle of the picture, and lack of camera shake, suggests the video was shot by a fixed camera, i.e a security camera. I find this odd and more than a little creepy.

  44. Deep Thought on July 9th, 2012
  45. When my kid won’t go to sleep I put his sorry a$$ in the dog kennel kept in the basement. Little sh!t doesn’t cause any problems for about a week.

  46. Red Raider on July 9th, 2012
  47. @jj, really? this guy should kill himself because of this video? If you think it’s stupid, fine, but saying someone should kill themself…..

    At her age, I’d be more worried about her using the bumper to boost herself up out of the crib than suffocation. Like said before, she’s old enough to move.

  48. Jaloco on July 9th, 2012
  49. Wow I can so tell who are not parents and who are. And you know what I see in this video? Love.

  50. Boober on July 9th, 2012
  51. There is nothing wrong with comforting a crying baby. Yeah, crawling into the crib with the baby is kind of weird. I would have just picked her up and held her for a while…until she fell asleep. Then put her back in the crib.

  52. Marcie on July 9th, 2012
  53. that is completely adorable! its awesome to see dad and baby having the bond….. but advise to dad.. get baby a toddler bed w/ rails! much easier to sneak out of and definitely more comfy if u have to end up there for the night

  54. amama on July 10th, 2012
  55. Phen, you want sterilize people who care about and comfort their children? Would you rather we all ignore and neglect our kids?

  56. Ash on July 10th, 2012
  57. that was totally awesome loved it

  58. kim on July 10th, 2012
  59. This is awesome! i have done this numerous times with my daughter. Sleeping in a rocking chair is not very comfortable (for either mommy or baby) and i completly enjoy the cuddle time i get with her when i do have to do this! This is one awesome dad! and how cute is that little one that she just wants to lay on him!! Too cute!

  60. kbob on July 10th, 2012
  61. We do not know the back story, Maybe she was sick or something like that and the parent did not feel right leaving them alone. Yes children need routine and structure, but sometimes they just need mommy or daddy after a hard day. He is a great dad for taking the time to cuddle and love his child. at least he didn’t slam her into a wall like so many parents who cant get there child to stop screaming.

  62. d on July 10th, 2012
  63. I do not think this is awesome, I think it’s sad. I feel bad for the little girl, but unless dad plans on doing that every night it’s not a good thing to do. Yes I’m a parent, raised 4 of them, all fine adults now. You need to make sure nothing is wrong and let them learn to self sooth or they end up a very sad child that needs to look to others for comfort all the time.

  64. Audrey on July 10th, 2012
  65. Thanks, Boober; that’s just what I was thinking. I think it’s very sweet. What do all you others care what one parent choosed to do?! And THIS is not the reason for kids with self-entitlement issues. I think that comes more from parents buying kids off because they don’t want to spend time with them.

  66. Valski on July 11th, 2012
  67. *chooses*

  68. Valski on July 11th, 2012
  69. I remember those days! After a while you just let them cry

  70. Me on July 12th, 2012
  71. oh, so cute!!!. Done it before.

  72. Ed on July 14th, 2012
  73. Valski,
    No this may not be the direct cause of “Self-entitlement” issues…but a logical person can deduce that a child that knows they can get what they want when they cry…will grow up with that same notion and be come a Kindergartner who pitches a fit when they don’t get what they want…and so on the process goes…until adulthood when you have a full grown adult who can’t handle being told no…

    I’m not saying parents should never sooth a child when their crying, or check on them to make sure they are ok…but as many have said on here already…babies and children need routine and structure. They need clear boundaries to aid them in to developing as self sufficient adults.

    This video is showing love…yes…the dad does love his little girl very much…but it also shows a lack of self control on the dads part…yes its hard to hear your girl cry…and yes every parent wants to go and comfort them every single time they cry…but sometimes parents just need to resist the urge…for the sake of the child.

    and just a question for you to think about…yes some parents buy their children off so they don’t have to spend time with them (which is very sad) but do you really think that is the only reason parents “buy their kids off”? what about the parent who buys a kid a toy just so they will stop pitching a fit in the store? or the parent who buys their teen a new computer or cell phone just so they will stop acting out and whining about it? these are causes too…and they are caused by NOT SETTING CLEAR BOUNDARIES AS BABIES….

  74. sage on July 20th, 2012
  75. For all the people who complained about the kid with the dyed hair, this is the one you should be complaining about!!! This is “cute” but what did Dad just teach that child, I will give in to what you want if you cry and throw a fit. Personalities are completely developed by the time we are 2 . . . you can’t go back and change that. Also there is merit to having your child learn to self-comfort. WOW! I am glad I will not be living in that house in 12 years!!!!

  76. Dolli on July 22nd, 2012
  77. While it is a little strange that Dad got in the crib with his daughter, I have to say I don’t think there is anything wrong with not making your child cry themselves to sleep. My LO is 9 months old and she sleeps in the bed with us. She is at the age where she realizes what she is doing and doesn’t just cry when she wants something. But you know what, she gets disciplined when she is bad, she doesn’t get what she wants when she throws a fit (instead she gets in trouble). Just b/c you choose to co-sleep or choose not to let your child “cry it out” does not mean that your child will be a spoiled brat. It takes a lot more than that to have a spoiled child!

  78. Emily on July 25th, 2012
  79. The U.S is one of the few countries that does not allow their children to sleep with them. We have the liberty of space that has allowed us to put our babies in their own rooms alone. Yet, it has been proven that babies that sleep in the parent’s bed sleep better, have higher self esteem, lower incidents of SIDS, have stronger immune systems and become independent faster. I really lovely and eye opening movie is ‘Babies’. Shows how different children are treated and raised around the world. Honestly, the American couple was the coldest and most rigid.

  80. Susan Mecca Urbanczyk on August 8th, 2012
  81. Awwwwwww <3 That was so cute~

  82. Ignis on August 29th, 2012
  83. Most of the time my kids cried it out, sometimes though, when they were sick or teething, and they just cried and cried and cried and cried and the lack of sleep was driving me batshit buggy, they slept with us, because sometimes a baby just needs mommy/daddy to comfort them…

    my kids arent spoilt brats because they slept in my bed and i didnt leave them to cry it out, nor are they emotionally stunted
    because they occasionally had to cry it out.

    as for the camera/creepy thing? um…how? its not like its in a teen kids room, they have the camera in their babys room so they can monitor their child while they’re working in their office/cooking dinner/whatever.
    if we had a house instead of renting an apartment we would have this type of set up in our kids rooms.
    i guess we’re creepy because we want to ensure our kids safety even when we cant be in the same room

  84. c on September 26th, 2012
  85. i didn’t have bumpers because i thought they were dangerous(SIDS) and my baby girl got her leg caught in the bars of the crib. so i started using them. this baby’s old enough to not have to worry about sids anyway.
