My sister has a 4-month old son. Whenever he's fussy and won't stop crying at night, she screams at him. She yells for him to shut up. I've never seen her hurt him, but sometimes I hear her hitting the wall or something, then he becomes quiet. I worry that she's hurting him, though I can't prove that.
Is yelling at a baby abuse?

I want you to step in and help your sister.. Give her some hrs in a week when she doesn't have to take care of the baby...
Same happened with my mom.. She went Psycho and ended up hurting me pretty badly on occasions!.. I am scarred and am scared to confront young women!.. I am still a single and Virgin and never been in relationship and maybe never will..0

It sounds as though she has post pardon depression and desperately needs to speak with her doctor about her frustrations. It's extremely hard having a new baby, I didn't sleep hardly at all the first 3 months my baby woke up every 2 hrs to eat and poop and eat again! Infants are demanding of course in many ways and if your sis doesn't have help at all she may be feeling a mixture of emotions. Meds and some "me" time will help her. There is no shame whatsoever in taking meds.1
