This simple technique is a game-changer.
Babies are easy to love… until they begin to cry (or need a diaper change). Fortunately for parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and friends of the family, there’s a newly shared technique that works wonders when trying to soothe and quiet a crying infant.
Doctor Robert Hamilton, who is worked as a pediatrician for thirty years, knows from experience that a crying baby is rarely a happy one. Fortunately, time and experience have allowed him to discover a technique that immediately calms a child down.
In the video below, Dr. Hamilton explains that there are three main steps to soothe a baby in distress:
- Begin by folding the child’s arms across his or her chest, one arm at a time. Be sure that each movement is gentle.
- Next, support the baby’s bottom with the fleshy part of your hand (not your fingers).
- Finally, rock the child back and forth, gently, at a 45-degree angle.
It sounds simple yet works like a charm. Watch the Dr. Hamilton demonstrate the method below:
