Hoboken Baby Bounce

Baby Bounce – rattling cribs don’t look too fun in Hoboken

One Hoboken411 took a photo of what they believed was a rather disturbing situation. Along the waterfront walkway near Pier C Park, a group of “caregivers” were out with some cribs stuffed with infants.

The reader said “Saw a parade of “baby dumpsters” today. There were at least five of them, with four or five hysterically crying babies in them. Hilarious!”

They went on to add, that the rolling cribs (or “dumpsters” as they referred to them as), were being pushed along the bumpy brick pavers, which rattled the babies still-forming skulls, causing great discomfort and disturbing noises – hence the crying in unison.

I suppose this is the byproduct of our times. When you have to outsource the raising of your own child most of the time it has to make you wonder. Why? Is it worth all the hassle and complication? Does it take away from the true beauty of bringing a life into this world? Or put the infant at risk?

This crib parade happens only when there is a fire alarm in the building where this school is located. We have found this institution to be an excellent care and learning provider for those who choose to be a part of its community

When emergency evacuation procedures are being tested in a facility, there is usually some sort of Fire Officer presence to indicate to onlookers that this is a drill. I can understand the concern of a passer-by

That’s a better situation than having 20+ parents individually negotiate 11 flights of stairs to evacuate their babies/toddlers due to (frequent) false alarms in the bldg.
