Sick, sick, sick! She should be in jail for abuse! If you feel like making your heart break even more...read the stuff on the right side under "Read More".

She does have a Guestbook though...
I find this quote from the website particularly ironic:
Quote:
It is the adults who must help their child find peace...They must guarantee a good life, a secure life with good sleep, peaceful sleep, sufficient sleep and blissful sleep, sleep that their baby will soon joyously take, secure enough in herself to both dare and desire to sleep that well.

Woops...sorry, I didn't realize that she was ramming the stroller into the wall!!!

Just, incredible...I did a search on her name and not much came up. Most of the stuff was in Sweedish (I think). Obvisouly, there is a problem with her in her country if other doctors are thinking or trying to take action against her.

This is without a doubt, abuse.

In Exile...where did you hear about her from? This is the first time I have heard about her.

I heard about it from other German AP Parents. Her books are available in Germany and that's where I heard from her.

Pretty sick.

reading it in translation makes it seem really creepy.

i only scanned it but i have to say, from about 6 months we discovered that dd liked to go to sleep lying on her front, with her head turned to one side, while we patted her quite hard on the back... am i going to get flamed? she was going through a stage when she refused to nurse to sleep.

But if your baby would have cried, arching back, screaming and everything you would have stopped it and tried something else instead, right?

She is basically forcing the baby to stay on its belly, no matter if baby is happy or not.

Exactly. She's practically shoving the baby's head down and on top of that she is sort of whipping the carriage around so hard that the baby must be hitting the edge. On her homepage she is crashing her hand on the carriage very abruptly- it's like a "how to" for shaken baby syndrom, especially with those really little ones.

I also get if a baby prefers to sleeps on his belly and likes to fall asleep with a sort of rythmical patting, that's fine by me, some adults have stranger ways of falling asleep. But that is not the same as ripping a stroller around the way she does and hitting that poor baby on the butt so hard that the head wobbling on the other side.

That's just sick. Those are not her babies- her children are grown. So it's not even a totally sleep deprived parent on the brink of a breakdown. No, this is a "rational" adult who has sadistic streaks.

And she has a following, it seems almost cultish. Creepy.

Yeah, when I watched the two videos I thought, "Yeah, I bet shaken baby syndrome makes the babies sleep for 12 hours."

Sick, sick, sick!

Yes, shove the baby a little harder and the baby might sleep forever.


I hope somebody in Sweden has enough backbone to call the police. The youtube video "tryckpress" is gone, so obviously she starts feeling like maybe that's not the best idea. I don't who had that video up, maybe it's herself, or maybe that someone got threatened, I have no idea. But I hope somebody there calls the police.

G!d have mercy.

I'm not a particularly spiritual person, but I hope like nothing that someone, somewhere is looking out for these little ones.

Just a friendly reminder not to encourage MDCers to head over to other sites for adversarial purposes, as per UA #6:

Quote:
Do not post to invite MDC members to other communities, blogs or message boards for adversarial purposes or link to discussion about MDC at another site. Do not negatively discuss other communities or discussions elsewhere (this includes blog comments), regardless of whether or not you link to that discussion or community. This is to maintain and respect the integrity of our own and other communities.
And I think I won't be clicking on any of the links here because we have company coming over and I don't want to be blowing my nose and wiping tears when they arrive! Yikes.

I have a 2 month old, I can't bring myself to look. Sounds utterly horrfying though. And there's actually people who let this UAV near their precious little ones?

I searched and found her website but I couldn't get the video to load. I wrote a message in the guestbook ... I'm sure it will be deleted.

What kills me is that this method only teaches infants that their needs won't be met when it comes to nighttime/sleep. Rather than "training" or the infant "learning" this method is only conditioning them to operate under learned helplessness and despair. I just can't imagine doing that to an infant.

That lady is crazy and I feel bad for the children of the deluded, sleep-depreived, desparate parents that don't know any better.

ETA: 20 minutes later and deleted. Crazy.

I also found scores of videos of people "sleep training" their kids -- on youtube!! Why would you advertise that to the world?
post #33 of 38
i can't bring myself to watch the videos but from what y'all have said my heart is really breaking. i just don't understand why some people have babies.
post #34 of 38
I have no words. That's just sick, and wrong.
post #35 of 38
Dang I just read that the stuff we are posting is getting deleted. I babbblefished one comment and a parent was concerned about leaving babe in bed to cry if 12hrs of sleep hadn't been met. ARG! That lady is a nut!

I tried to search on youtube, but nothing came up. What were some of the search terms you used?

"Tryckpress" has been taking down by claiming copyright infringements. So one of the most horrifying videos is down- the one she took down from her website after public outrage in Sweden.

I guess several Pediatricians are contemplating next steps.

I hope somebody FINALLY has the guts to call the cops.
