wrenchboy: camarugala: Funny, they don't look deafThey look like brother and sister, but thats me/deaf guy here
Kaenneth: I'd love to have a child, except for the first 2-4 years or so.
surrounded by arseholes: As a new dad who hasn't slept more than 3 continuous hours in the last 2.5 weeks, I've found that there were times where I wanted to off myself....but never my boy. And sweet Jews with Jesus does he hate being changed at night!/it gets better right?//hello? anyone?
gonegirl: I laughed way harder at that headline than was appropriate.Curse you, subby.

And sweet Jews with Jesus does he hate being changed at night!/it gets better right?//hello? anyone?8 months of colic. no more than 3 hours of continuous sleep. Then, on a magical night she slept...... all night. When I awoke to sunlight I rushed to her room because I was sure she was sick or worse. Nope. Just sleeping. And that was the greatest and most scary sleep I ever had....
Hector Remarkable: Almost the same way Helen Keller killed the Lindbergh baby.
surrounded by arseholes: Thanks for the reassurance gang! He's been bathed, fed, and changed. I'm thinking of sacrificing a chicken to ensure he at least let's me get a few hours of sleep tonight.
trappedspirit: And this is one of the reasons I am not in law enforcement. These two would have just disappeared. Knowing full well that one of them was probably an order of magnitude more culpable than the other, it wouldn't have mattered. I would have looked at them and figured no one with any kind of pull would be missing them and they would have disappeared. There wouldn't even have been anything tortuous about it. Except for the brief moment for the second one realizing that the first one just hit the floor like a discarded bag of rotten potatoes. I supposed that moment before I could get to the second one would be some form of psychological torture, which wouldn't sit well with me. But the whole thing would reach conclusion quickly. And I would consider the laborious cleanup my penitence.
GreenSun: Holy crap, this is late Darwinism in action! I hope that people should think first before deciding to breed. When the kid is born, it's too late to legally do anything about it.
sleeps in trees: Keep baby in his own bed as much as possible
Fo Shiz: Burn these farkers. Took drunk to take care of her. Asshole slammed her against the counter "at least" three times. Then he punched her. 5 month old girl. Wow.
TopoGigo: sleeps in trees: Keep baby in his own bed as much as possibleI don't really think there's anything explicitly wrong with "co-sleeping", as the hippies call it. It just presents problems down the road. Plenty of divorces get their start during the first couple of months of childrearing. Mom feels Dad isn't pulling his weight. Mom feels Dad doesn't love the baby as much as she does. Mom gets exasperated and nags Dad so he'll do his half of the job. (Nevermind the fact that almost no couple can come to any fair agreement on division of labor. Plenty of dads think Mom should do it all, and plenty of moms think Dad should work 40 hours a week while Mom stays home, but still do 50% of the housework and childrearing.) Meanwhile, Dad feels like Mom treats him like a hired babysitter who just isn't very good at the job. Dad is afraid he's a terrible father because the biological urges to not throw the irritating torture device known as baby to the wolves aren't as strong in males as in females. Nobody was brave enough to mention that fathers don't really get personally involved until they can see evidence of a potential padawan emerge. All of this creates monumental stress on the relationship. There is absolutely no reason to throw in the added stress of the crying baby sharing the bed, removing any chance of intimacy that was there in the first place. And then, once you get the kid in the habit, you won't sleep alone for six or seven years. More if you have another kid. A friend of my wife sleeps with her 8 and 10 year old boys and three little dogs...and is shocked that she has trouble keeping a boyfriend....
RenownedCurator: t depends on the baby -- cosleeping in the early months can be a godsend if the baby is the kind who takes forever to fall asleep and wakes up easily. Plus, if they're nursing, they're going to be constantly hungry, and having to get out of bed four times in one night to get the baby from the crib and feed him without tripping or falling asleep in your chair isn't too great for your stress levels either. Much, much easier to have the baby on one side and spouse on the other; everyone sleeps better. And let's face it, in the first few months, "intimacy" is going to be a rare commodity no matter where the baby is sleeping. We coslept with all of ours and they all transitioned to their own crib after they were past the new baby eating-every-five-minutes stage.
Show_The_O_Face: For those that didn't click over to page two.Police say the father told them that he was holding the baby with both hands around the torso and shaking the baby at around 12:30 a.m. He allegedly told police he "hit the back of the child's head on the kitchen counter at least three times," according to the report. He also allegedly struck the child's face, knocking her off the counter and onto the kitchen floor.I'm secretly glad the child passed away after this attack. My wife works at a center for special needs kids. I've met quite a few shaken babies. Death is better than what some of these kids have to go through for the rest of their lives.
MeanJean: Rosemary's baby daddyI'm not saying it's ok to beat your crying baby to death...but I understandI don't in this case. A crying infant can be incredibly grating, but I can't imagine it being that stressful to a Deaf person. Wouldn't you sleep through most if it anyway?
SlothB77: A deaf Texas couple have been charged in the beating death of their 5-month-old daughter who was allegedly killed after an argumentBoth parents are deaf and mute.What kind of argument is that?
180IQ: To be fair, the parents are deaf. This means they're likely to be both unemployed and functionally illiterate.

ristst: 180IQ: To be fair, the parents are deaf. This means they're likely to be both unemployed and functionally illiterate.I have a couple of hearing impaired friends who would absolutely take a swing at you for saying this./neither are unemployed nor illiterate.
