Pediatrician Shows How To Calm A Crying Baby
Dr. Hamilton has handled a lot of babies at his practice and has a tried and true technique for calming a crying baby that he uses to quiet infants during office visits. “Parents have learned it and have experienced great success at home,” he says in the video description, before demonstrating the four simple steps.
First, pick up the baby. Then:
1. Fold across the chest.
2. Secure arms gently.
3. Grasp diaper area.
4. Rock at a 45 degree angle. Gently shake their booty and rock them up and down.
Dr. Hamilton says this will work for the first 2 to 3 months after which the baby will probably get too heavy. If your baby doesn’t stop crying it could be that your baby is hungry or possibly not feeling well.
