"Then you hear slap noises and his crying changes from a distress cry to a pain cry. I just wanted to reach through the audio tape, go back in time and just grab him up.
"To know that (for) five months I had handed my child to a monster, not knowing what was going on in my house for that day."
Charleston City Police arrested Khan, who had initially passed a criminal background check conducted by the Jordans, a few weeks later and she confessed to the abuse.
State authorities will also reportedly place Khan on a child abuse registry, meaning she can no longer work with children.
Mr Jordan told Fox Newsabout the familypet, saying: "He is a very personable dog, so for him to show aggression toward anyone is a sign that something was wrong because he never shows aggression.
"Just the simple mannerisms of him raising his hair up, getting excited, getting worried about our son, was definitely enough to make us understand that he was trying to tell us something about this babysitter."
Mrs Jordan described what she heard in the recording as a "nightmare".
She said: "For seven-and-a-half hours my son cried nearly the entire time. She was cursing at him, calling him horrible names and it came for no reason.
"He wasn't acting up. He hadn't been crying until she left him alone in his crib for hours and of course the physical abuse."
Mr Jordan added: "The biggest concern for us was the slapped noises that we could hear over the audio.
"Obviously we could not tell because it was an audio recording where he was being slapped, but you could hear his cries afterwards and it sounded like he was being shaken.
"You could hear the reverberation in his voice as he is being shaken and that is what disturbed us the most."
