Two staff members decided to dress a couple of them up and did a weird little video.

Okay, "mini Satans" is funny.

The article I read was pretty slanted; they described the dance thing as "forcing" the baby to dance "like a puppet." I'm not sure I'd describe that sort of thing as "forcing." Forcing implies resistance. Doubt these babies knew what was happening; the "dancing" one doesn't seem to be distressed, and the nurse is being gentle. I think this is a major overreaction to people being bored (and possibly overworked) on the job.

I think it's horribly unprofessional (and possibly a HIPAA violation), BUT...

I still think the dancing one is fucking funny. If I found out today that either of those things were done to me as a newborn I would find it hilarious. Also don't tell me there aren't a bunch of bored parents who have done that to their own kids before. eye rolling smiley

That's what I figured, too. What parent hasn't sat their baby on their lap and pretended they were dancing to something? They were unprofessional, I agree, but they weren't hurting anyone.

I'm pretty sure that if a nurse in the NICU (that's pretty much where I spent the first three months of life, since I was born two months prematurely and weighed 4.5 lbs. at birth) had done something like this and I found it out later on, like you, I would think it was LMAO material, too. Instead they were probably stuck with a cranky, hung-over baby (my egg incubator decided to make her pregnancy an on again-off again cocktail party), but I suspect that my egg incubator and/or sperm donor probably did this with me when they were bored. I'd take being a dancing baby over being a cranky hung-over baby any day, but, hey, that's just me.

I really think that the whole thing is being blown all out of proportion. Yeah, maybe the "mini-Satans" wasn't the smartest thing to say (though still funny as hell), but I really doubt that the infants were harmed in any way. Unprofessional? Yes (IMO). Worthy of all the brouhaha? No way.

moos frequently blow things out of proportion.
I have a pic of the baby duct-taped to a wall. along with it's duckie.
I thought it was funny, but then, I tend to react to things more like a guy on some topics.

CERTIFIED HOSEHEAD!!!

people (especially women) do not give ONE DAMN about what they inflict on children
and I defy anyone to prove me wrong:

The selfish wants of adults outweigh the needs of the child.

If I want to hear the pitter-patter of little feet I'll put shoes on my pets.

Mankind and its needs (wants) are like unto a black hole. It devours all available resources and it never is full: it merely grows larger and demands more.

Definition of 'wealthy': Anyone who makes more/has more than you do.

Someone pointed out that I'm a realist. And all along I thought I was just a pessimist crossed with a cynic.

Entitlement, thy name is mooooooooooooooo

they are insured... but not everyone must prove they are a citizen.
Add to this that, many of those who refuse or are unable to prove they are
citizens, will receive free insurance paid for by those who are.""

I am confused enough already. I do not need outside help.

Distressed infants cry. Nothing was crying here.

Not supporting this in any way, as it was unprofessional and stupid. However, when I was in training, I remember the trainers referring to loafs from junkie moos were 'runts'. Little Satan's is probably the least offensive term they could name some of the absolute horrors they would have to deal with. Heck, the adult versions of them are damned right hell on earth, and the crotch nuggets are simply smaller, younger versions of their parents - so I wouldn't say Little Satans are far off.

Plus, knowing the absolute model parents that some of them have, a bit of gentle movements and costumes are the least of their worries, when they will probably be drop kicked into walls, or sold into prostitution, so their gene donors can get their next hit (yes, this does happen).

Just saw a headline that these employees had (unsurprisingly) been fired. But the absolutely best part was that, further down in the news feed, there was an "adorable" video of a father "dancing" his infant.

So why is one getting cooed over and the other is abusive?

Same reason why when a breeder roasts their kid in a hot car, it's an "accident" because they "forgot" and a million excuses are made as to why the breeder should not be sent to prison. A babysitter, nanny, or daycare worker who legitimately forgets a kid gets strung up, tarred, and feathered.

But all society should rise up in alarm when it hears that a baby that is not wanted is about to be born."

Yup. Breeders are perfect and beyond reproach. (Unless you're another breeder; then you can criticize how other breeders raise their kids to your heart's content.)

If these nurses are CF, they are certainly putting us in a very dark light. I suspect they are CL wannabreeds, but who knows? These types of videos are one of the reasons why CF are looked down upon. Nobody will see them as CL fencesitters, only the fact that they don't have sprogs and have no respect for other people's sprogs.
