Emotional baby cries while mom sings Rod Stewart's "My Heart Can't Tell You No" to her

For some reason I find this quite hard to watch! The purity of the baby's emotions is very moving.

I agree with R1.

Kids...they are pure in their emotional reactions.
I can remember crying as a little kid to Barry Manilow's "Could This Be Magic." My mom was so worried she kept me home from school. But the sound was just so sad it made me cry.

I love unadulterated emotion. No pretense, no holding back, just authenticity. But it was hard for me too because I think it was a little painful for the baby.

The baby alternates the crying with smiling, so I think it was a healthy, cathartic experience for her. The mother is teaching her that it's okay to show emotion.

But it's not, R6.

I want to keep talking about this emotional baby! Why is it so hard to watch?

I think the baby really reacted most to the lyrics "wake up missing you" - which makes sense, since a ten-month-old would understand those words, likely, and also the concept of them. Poor sweet emotional baby! It was very cute.

Does the mother want a record contract?

I don't see the baby as distressed...? I've cried from joy and love...or for something beautiful. I think the baby was just basking in the love...

Maybe the kid just didn't like her singing voice.

When my son was a baby, he used to put his hand over my mouth when I sang because he hated the sound of my voice. LOL.

Viewers distressed pets used to place their paws over Carol Burnett's mouth on the TV set when she would sing.

It's the sad longing in the voice, and maybe a few words

Well, you don't get to see the mom's face. Maybe she has an alternating sad/happy look that the baby is mirroring. It might not be the song at all.

"Kids...they are pure in their emotional reactions."
Check out the latest studies on babies and their feelings/motives. Sadly, they're every bit as evil as adults.

Well her singing made me cry too for a different reason. She can't sing for shit.

They may cry for other reasons, you know.

Are you delusional old fools actually thinking a baby is reacting to the words of this (badly) sung song? It's most likely reacting unpleasantly to the loud sounds its mother is making. Babies do not like loud sounds, and the woman's voice is not soothing. The loud, tuneless singing is probably overwhelming the baby's auditory senses painfully.
I swear, how you people survive a day is a fucking mystery.

It's never to early to start a regimen of proper discipline when your children are emotionally acting out for attention. She is being remiss in her parental duties.

R37 is sensible. R38 is reprehensible. Carry on.

I agree with this and R37. The lady's voice is pretty loud, so the baby could be reacting to the volume, rather than the words.
If you think about it, the baby can make no distinction between the woman's loud singing, versus two people yelling, versus an argument. So the baby is probably crying out of frustration, rather than reacting to the song itself.
The singer's voice is anything BUT soothing.

I can't believe it took until r37 to realise the alternating volume was affecting the baby's facial expression and tears.

I work in Billing, bitch. And that pitchy singing almost made me collapse yet again.

Congratulations on the promotion, Ginny! I'll order a slab cake. Maybe two - one chocolate, one vanilla - so everyone's happy. We can always take home any leftovers!

What's with the 'tude, Ginny? Looks like somebody's PMS'ing for the SECOND time this month!
I'm sorry that your OBGYN told you that you can't have babies like my little Madysen and Austen, but that's no reason to take it out on the rest of us!
Geez, some people are SO inconsiderate.
Now back to that ADORABLE video... pass me another piece of red velvet cake, girls!

Dude, the thing is crying because its mother is FUCKING BELTING INTO ITS FACE. You'd cry too, especially if whoever was screaming at you was that out of tune. My god. No wonder she's "shy about her voice".
Notice the baby smiled every time she stopped to breathe...it was NOT having it.

Stop being such a bitch, Debbie! You know Ginny's got a thyroid problem! Or maybe you would know if you were ever at the office instead of taking Madysen to her endless appointments with the allergy specialist.
I've actually ordered three slab cakes to help cheer Ginny up since we work in such a toxic, bullying environment.

I'm going to use this in our next HR Sensitivity Training seminar. Mandatory for all employees.

Yeah, that's a touching video, but mostly because we're reading into what the baby is feeling, rather than what the baby might actually be feeling/reacting to.
And it's clear that the mom knows what makes the baby cry... either she's done this before or she knows exactly what to do to make the baby act like that. The mom tells the baby to show her how she feels, so we know the mom is manipulating the situation to some extent.
And yes, I think the mom wants a recording contract. Her singing style is just so... obvious.

She may want a contract, but the baby is going to get one! The baby is the star!
