Parents Witness Confinement Nanny Treating Baby Roughly On CCTV
While it might be hard for parents to part with their newborns a few weeks after their birth, they often have to return to work, entrusting their little ones with nannies or childcare centres.
Even so, parents will forever be worried about their ‘lil ones and will often check in on their precious babies.
Recently, when Mr and Mrs See checked the CCTV footage of their Hougang flat, they found that their 1-month-old daughter was being treated roughly by their nanny.
Footage showed the nanny dropping the baby on her head, pulling her by her calves, and patting her excessively hard on the back.
After seeing the horrific footage, 33-year-old Mr See lodged a police report against the nanny, who is now under police investigation.
Hired confinement nanny under friend’s recommendation
When first-time parents Mr and Mrs See were looking for a confinement nanny, a friend recommended them Mdm Yang.
63-year-old Mdm Yang apparently has 19 years of experience and had never received a complaint.
Knowing how difficult it can be to get a confinement nanny during the pandemic, they paid a deposit for Mdm Yang back in Jun 2021, even before their baby was born.
According to Shin Min Daily News, since their daughter was born on 27 Dec, Mdm Yang had been staying in the same room with her. The family’s helper also stayed in the same room.
On 17 Jan, Mrs See was reviewing the room’s CCTV footage when she noticed Mdm Yang patting her 1-month-old baby excessively hard on her back.
The sight angered Mrs See to the point of tears, reported Shin Min Daily.
The parents subsequently had a discussion but decided to give Mdm Yang another chance.

However, Mr See later went to check the CCTV footage of the past few days.
He was livid to find that there were many more instances when Mdm Yang was rough with their 1-month-old daughter.
Besides patting the baby hard when burping her, the footage also showed Mdm Yang falling asleep when holding the baby. She then dropped the young child on her head.
