Nanny Cam catches 60 yr old beating up 5 month old

This just in from the YouTube posting.

"This is Cheryl White of Murrells Inlet from South Carolina. CNN said so far the baby seems OK. You know long term damage could be there. She KNEW what she was doing. And it's unforgivable. I hope they throw the book at her. You should never shake a baby, NEVER! And this LAZY, IGNORANT, HURTFUL, EVIL woman does it over and over again. Nobody forced her to babysit. Please if your going to lose your patience with kids any age...take a break, walk outside; never hurt a baby. Get help, call a friend."

For whatever reason this 60 year old thought it would be a good idea to beat up and shake around a 5 month old. It just ceases to amaze me how callus and ignorant people can actually be!.

  • 1. Don't shake babies...they can and will break.
  • 2. Don't shake a baby if the babies especially if the parents are attorneys.
  • 3. Don't shake babies it will not make them 'be quiet.'
  • 4. Shaking babies is bad for your health and the baby might not make it through it.

    Coping with crying

    By the fourth month of life, all babies, including colicky babies, cry a lot less. Long bouts of crying and crying that can't be soothed are rare by the time an infant is five months of age. In the meantime, here are some ideas about what you can do to soothe a baby: Changing Baby

  • Make baby as comfortable as possible, e.g., check temperature and diaper.
  • Provide gentle motion.
  • Provide soft music or other relaxing sounds, like a vacuum cleaner.
  • Feed baby slowly and burp often.

    Things to keep in mind about infant crying:

    Different ways of soothing may work at different times. A comforted baby doesn't always mean a quiet baby. Even if your attempts to soothe your baby don't stop your baby from crying, your baby is still benefiting from your attention. You are building your baby's trust in you. Keep in mind that sometimes a baby just has to cry—crying doesn't always mean that something is wrong.

    When you have done everything you can to meet your baby's needs and your baby keeps crying, you may feel tired, alone, or frustrated. You might feel that you are not doing a good enough job or that your baby is purposely making things hard. It is normal to have strong feelings in response to inconsolable crying; however, you must never shake or otherwise harm a baby.

    If at anytime you start feeling tense, frustrated or angry, remember:

    * It is more important to stay calm than to stop the crying
    * It's OK to ask for help
    * Take a break, don't shake

    It is more important to stay calm than to stop the crying

    When you can't soothe your baby, remember that it is more important for you to stay calm than to stop the crying. Knowing how, and practicing ways, to keep yourself calm will help you through the challenging times now and in the future as your child or children grow up.

    Different self-calming strategies work for different people. Here are some ideas that might work for you:

  • close your eyes and imagine you are somewhere relaxing and pleasant like a warm beach
  • read
  • listen to music
  • take a shower or bath
  • take a deep breath and slowly count to 10 or more. Don't think about the problem, just concentrate on your breathing, count and take the time to calm down.
  • do something that makes you laugh and/or smile
  • yell into a pillow
  • hit a punching bag or weight bag

    It's OK to ask for help, in fact sometimes it is the best thing to do.

    All parents and caregivers need help, and it is important for you to have a IT's OK To Ask for Helpsupport system in place. Have the phone numbers of people who can help when the crying is too much, such as:

    * a neighbour, relative, or friend that can come over right away and help
    * the baby's doctor or public health nurse

    Take a break, don't shake

    "Take a break, don't shake" is a strategy to help you and other caregivers cope with crying. When the crying is too much:

    * Put the baby in a safe place, like the crib.
    * Shut the door and take a 15 minute break in another area of your home. Use a timer to help you keep track of the time. Letting your baby cry for a few minutes will not hurt your baby.
    * When you are feeling calm, you can try again to soothe your baby. If you don't feel like you can handle things, ask for help. Call someone.

    The most common reason given by perpetrators for shaking a baby is that the baby wouldn't stop crying or fussing.

    Parents, know you can trust your baby's other caregivers

    Not only can crying be frustrating for parents, crying can be frustrating for the other people who look after your baby as well. So be sure your baby's caregiver knows:

    * Babies cry for many reasons.
    * Tips for soothing your baby.
    * It is NEVER OK to shake a baby.

    Ask other caregivers what they will do when the baby can't stop crying. Ask what they will do if they get frustrated or upset with the baby. Tell them that if something happens that they can't handle, it is OK to place the baby in the crib, leave the room and take a break.

    Let them know who they can call for help, such as:

    * the names of close-by neighbours
    * the number where you can be reached - assure them that you will return immediately if they feel they are unable to calmly care for the child
    * Health Link Alberta

    Talk about crying and the dangers of shaking to every person who will look after your children. It can be hard to ask people if they might get frustrated with your baby, try using the When your BABY can't stop CRYING brochure and the Crying Plan as conversation starters. These will help you talk about infant crying and the importance of never shaking a baby with the other people who live with and/or look after your baby.

    Try to remember that the period of increased crying will come to an end!
    As a baby grows he or she becomes more settled. By the fourth month of life, all babies, including colicky babies, cry a lot less.

    A family that I know just bought a nanny camera from SAFEGUARD. They love it. It is motion activated and it even has infrared night vision. You guys really should check it out!

    The idea of nanny surveillance cameras is an excellent idea, but the companies that run them must proceed prudently. They must not prejudice innocent third parties (such as myself). I was appalled by the video clip not only because of the cruelty displayed by the nanny but also by the fact that I happen to have some personal resemblance to the nanny. Indeed, the name of the offendor has not been divulged. Must I go around fearing that people will associate me with this terrible case? At least, Nanny Camera Watch should blur the nannies' faces.

    Nowadays, many parents are considering using hidden in-home surveillance devices to watch how their child's caregiver works in their absence. The Counter Spy Shops, an international retail chain, reports a 25% increase just over a span of past five years in the sales of these spy camcorders-often called as "nanny cams."

    Hidden cameras or nanny cams are increasingly gaining popularity because of their proven effectiveness in identifying abusive nannies. With a nanny cam in place, parents know for sure how their children are actually being taken care of. These hidden cameras have helped many people catch abusive nannies who otherwise left unmonitored, would have continued to abuse or neglect the children.

    You might want to try out GotoCamera's free webcam software. GotoCamera is EASY to set up and easy to use. All you need is a webcam (a USB webcam such as those made by Logitech, Creative, etc, or even the webcam integrated into your netbook / notebook) and a Windows PC, and you’re ready to start. Once your camera is set up, you can turn on recording schedules, configure motion detection, share your camera with family, and access it from any browser, including your iPhone, so that you can remotely monitor your camera's recordings. You can watch over your children any time you wish. This is perfect for people who can't afford a nanny to watch over their kids when they're away from home. At less than $4 a month, it makes complete sense to me. Give it a shot, try their 1 week free trial and let me know how it goes :)
