    Looks like some strange form of child abuse to me!
    Very disturbing!

    Apparently "speechless" is catching.

    I guess there's no doubt that this is a real baby in the video?

    I'm in the camp of He!! no for my baby....
    note though, that her actual movements are gentle and controlled, and the baby is relaxed and not thrashing around. It's not like a shaken baby issue!?!?

    Good grief how you could trust someone doing that is beyond me though....one slip or losing your own balance yikes!

    I can't say I've ever seen anything like that before, and even if I understood the logic and reasoning behind it- it's so alien to my own viewpoints and values that I could or would endorse or agree with it...

    But I am very interested in knowing exactly what is going on, and in watching the documentary that was made about these people in that community by the British team that is reported on in that article.

    I agree Charlie, once I was able to stop being taken aback I looked closely at the baby and that baby did not appear distressed in any way at all.

    Yes her movements were fluid and controlled, I wonder if this is an ancient practice that has been modernized or whathaveyou?

    I am very curious but then again I'm a pain in the dookus like that

    I think the baby isnt crying because she doesnt stop long enough to give it a chance to. I think the baby is stunned into silence. There is no way I would let someone day that to my baby. I fear a baby will be seriously injured or killed with this being done. Especially if someone sees the video and decides to try it out themselves.

    Interesting. That said, I can't watch the video at work...

    It looks like she is in the window of a pizza shop making dough. I could not even complete the video.

    I was just coming here to post this

    it's outrageous & I'm dumbfounded that parents would allow their babies to be jerked around like that

    at one point I saw that baby's face contorting into a cry but then she changes positions so quickly, the baby probably has a hard time even catching his/her breath

    I just saw this on Fox News this morning. I couldn't believe my eyes! Anyone who would do this is guilty of child abuse IMO. That poor baby!

    I disagree that there's not a possibility of shaken baby syndrome

    the lady's arms may be making somewhat fluid movements but the baby's movements look jerky to me and that kid's head is supposed to be supported at that age

    I've tried to watch it three times & haven't been able to finish it once

    every time, I'm just OMG!
