The point is, we just don't know. You see them several times a week, you will see if the baby looks happy and well adjusted or not, until you see evidence of a non-thriving baby, I wouldn't judge just yet.
I agree with this. My child may be screaming for 45 minutes straight, but that doesn't mean I'm not doing ANYTHING. Also, I always say things like "she never sleeps", but that's obviously not true. It just feels that way.

I'm sorry, but not everyone can be a martyr mommy and have a child hanging off them 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I'm glad some of you can handle it, but I know I couldn't.
