At first glance, I thought this was going to be about how letting a baby cry is child abuse, so I was ready to be up in arms.

There are several instances where I've had to let my youngest cry for a few minutes while I regrouped. Sometimes I get so frustrated but I can't imagine ever letting it get to the point where I harm her, I would rather hurt myself!

There is no shame in putting your baby in a SAFE place and walking away for a minute so you can steel your nerves; crying is really hard to handle and there is nothing so painful as knowing something is wrong and not being able to make it better :(
