Robert Hamilton, a pediatrician became a real star on YouTube with his simple tutorial for calming down a crying baby.
This technique is called “The Hold”. Here is how you can perform it:
- Pick up the baby and fold his arms across his chest. Secure the baby’s arms with your hand, which also supports the baby’s chin.
- Hold the baby’s bottom with your other hand.
- Hold the baby at a 45-degree angle and gently rock him.
Use this technique on babies up to 2 or 3 months old. Older babies become too heavy to be held in this position.
Give it a try…
