But seriously, who are they? The parents and caregivers I know and have known myself included are of a very different ilk — degrees different, in fact. Our instinct is to do anything in our power to stop a baby from crying. One sound from the baby, and the pressure we feel is enormous.
Make the crying stop so I can breathe again. Perhaps we shush, rock, jiggle, use electric swings, washing machines, pacifiers, drive all over the neighborhood, nurse babies for hours on end, afraid to take them off the breast even while they sleep lest they wake up and cry.
Some moms might attempt to sleep all night with a baby latched on.
Later, the time comes when we have to say no to our toddlers and they object to our decision and end up crying. This also feels innately wrong. Thankfully there are some intelligent, insightful, compassionate voices of reason out there.

Probably because few people were allowed to cry as much as needed when they were little. Your parents may have tried to stop you from crying when you were a baby. Perhaps they gave you a pacifieror kept trying to feed you, or jiggled you every time you cried, thinking this was what you needed at the moment.
Perhaps they tried to distract you with toys, music, or games, when all you needed was their undivided attention and loving arms so that you could continue with your crying.

I sense their relief. Usually someone cries at least a little. We understand that babies cry and parents need not feel stressed or embarrassed about it. Respond to the baby, reflecting that you are there and that eventually you will understand the reasons for the crying.
I can certainly understand relating to a particular ancestral practice and choosing to adopt it. Some adults remember being punished, threatened, or even abused when they cried as children.
Others remember their parents using kinder methods to stop them from crying, perhaps through food or other distractions. This early repression of crying could be one factor leading to the use of chemical agents later in life to repress painful emotions.

Calm breeds calm There is no one more sensitive than an infant and the people he is most sensitive to are his parents. Every interaction we have is an educational experience.
