I live in a unit block, and next door to me is another unit block. For the past week or so, the lady in the unit directly across from me, has had a baby in a pram... the baby sounds very new, so I'm not sure if it's the resident's newborn, or a visitor, or what.... but she sticks the baby in the pram, then sticks the pram in the front doorway, propping open her front door, and the baby just screams and screams and screams. She rarely consoles it, sometimes I can hear her calling out to it, or sometimes she comes over to the pram and says something to it, but not in a concerned tone of voice, it's the type of voice you say to toddler when it's being sulky, like a sarcastic "ooh what's the matter" type thing. She doesn't sound frustrated, upset, or even bothered at all that the baby is crying.
It is very echoey between our 2 buildings, and I can hear the baby's cries all through my house. It bothers me very very much, and it bothers my kids as well. Poor bub.
So I wonder should I be doing something?
If she sounded frustrated etc then I definitely would see if she needs any help. But she doesn't seem to care.
I am a bit reluctant to go and approach her as I have no idea who she is and what she is like, and if I did go then she would know I was from next door, and I don't really want to risk people knowing where I live if she didn't appreciate me approaching her. Plus, I know this might sound mean... but it is Affordable Housing, not Housing Commission, but Affordable Housing. So it makes me a little more reluctant as well.
