Call CPS!

Today, I discovered via my webcam that my brother believes in teaching babies to self-soothe, which in practice means ignoring my baby until she stops crying, only changing the nappy once in the 7 hours I was at work, and forgetting to feed her at all because he’s too busy watching Netflix. FML

Well, if she watches 7 hours of baby footage, while he watches Netflix, we now know which one is the "dumb" sibling.

Baby viewed by one fixed camera vs. "Tiger King?" It's no contest!

I know it's hard to imagine, but I can scroll through my babies whole night in the crib in a mere 10 seconds and see how he moves all night in fast forward.

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!
