You get to watch a baby on a webcam for 7 hours at work? You sound productive!
It’s only “self-soothing” if the child is otherwise cared for. Meaning clean, feed, and burped if needed. Then you can let them cry for a while (assuming they aren’t sick or in pain for some reason.
As a mom of a young child - that is absolutely NOT how you teach a baby to self soothe!! That is tending to the baby at night when crying, in slowly expanding increments so they realize you will keep coming back.. not what your brother did! That is absolutely neglect, a little one can't go seven hours without eating! Please find someone more competent to look after your child. If that was my baby I'd be LIVID!
