Mum hits back at neighbours who asked her to control her ‘inconsiderate’ five-month-old baby’s crying in brutal note

A MUM has shared the witty response she gave to a neighbour after they complained about her baby crying.

Malaysian-based mum, Geralyn Amy Yeh, received a note from her neighbour about her five-month-old baby’s crying.

The note read: “Hello, could you please close the door when baby crying during day time?

“Currently we’re working from home, please be more considerate.”

According to the mum, the neighbour also visited her personally where they vented their frustrations to her maid.

Eager to get her own back, Geralyn sent a letter of her own to the neighbours, which she later shared on Facebook.

In the note, she wrote: “For infant, they can get real irritating with their high pitch screaming or crying but that’s the way they communicate and I do not have the magic to stop her from crying or make her grow up faster so that she can communicate without crying (sic).”

Following the incident, Geralyn joked that she had given her five-month-old a “stern warning”.

Continuing her letter, she wrote: “I’m not sure if she quite understood it, but she did look serious after hearing it and gave a pity sad look.”

While Geralyn said that she will try to comply with her neighbour’s requests such as closing the door, she also highlighted concerns over how it could be “stuffy” and that her baby could get “cranky”, hence crying even louder and longer.

She also suggested that her neighbours close their doors instead, and added that they can consider wearing headphones “to minimise the noise.”

She then went on to say: “I would appreciate you not to come over to shout or scold my helper as your behaviour have scared her and my baby (sic).”

Describing her baby’s cries as “noise pollution”, she sarcastically suggested that her neighbours contact Singaporean authorities such as the National Environment Agency (NEA), Housing and Development Board (HDB) or the police for other suggestions to keep the volume down.

Geralyn signed off the letter as the “parent of the innocent child.”
