I found it really interesting, The nurse who promotes the 50s style of care seems just crazy to me. I think its really shows that she has never had her own kids and doesnt really seem to understand that drive mothers have to care for their babies. There is just NO way I would put my baby outside for 3-4 hours at a time alone.
Haven't watched the episode (will tonight after DD goes to sleep) but I leave her outside the front door in her stroller if she has fallen asleep while we were out, even in the winter. It's actually quite common here and in Scandinavia: BBC News - The babies who nap in sub-zero temperatures I consider myself to be pretty "AP" as well.
Obviously I check on her and can hear her if she wakes...our door isn't close to the street either. She is such a light sleeper it isn't worth moving her to her crib...once you move her she is up, even if she has only been sleeping 10 minutes and that is her nap for the day.

ETA: You are right about that lady! I wouldn't be able to take her seriously at all. I remember when DD needed a heel prick as a newborn to test for jaundice...I bawled my eyes out right along with her and I'm sure I would have if I let her cry herself to sleep too. There is a reason mother nature makes parents uncomfortable when the baby cries.

Candice its actually very interesting. They compare the ways babies were brought up in the 50s, 60s & 70s. The guru lady for the 50s is just, oh i dunno.. heartless? Once in a while the 60s ladies agrees with her, like on breast feeding in public being inappropriate, but most the time the 60s and 70s ladies are just amazed at how cold she is.
They have 6 different sets of parents raise their new babies sticking to the ways of each decade and then compare how things work out....again, its pretty interesting.
