Ya know, I DO understand that sometimes it can not be helped. But that doesn't mean that it needs to be sugar coated.
If I really want an orange and all I can get is an apple, I can accept that there is nothing I can do about it right now and eat the apple. Trying to convince myself that the apple is an orange is not helpful. In the same way, I can't convince myself or anyone else that allowing a newborn to cry without comfort is ok. It's not, the infant does NOT know the difference and I see no reason why I have to convince anyone that the INFANT can't understand that, it's the law, it's a safety issue, but that doesn't mean that it is not potentially damaging. And therefore should be done as little as possible to minimize any damaging side effects. (imo of course)
