Why Millions Of Parents With Young Babies Are Watching This Video
A pediatrician in Santa Monica, CA, Dr. Hamilton, put together a video to show parents a technique on how to calm a crying baby using “The Hold”. The video has already had over 19 million views and shows the technique being utilized by Dr. Hamilton (Dr. Bob) to quiet infants during his office visits. Parents worldwide are trying this technique and experiencing great success at home.
The technique, which Hamilton calls “The Hold,” consists of four steps:
- Pick up the baby and fold his arms snuggly across his chest.
- Secure the baby’s arms with your hand after they’re folded. That hand also supports the baby’s chin.
- Gently hold the baby’s bottom with your dominant hand. Use the fleshy part of your hand, not your fingers, to ensure a secure hold.
- Position the baby at a 45-degree angle and gently rock him. The motion can be up and down, or you can try shaking the baby’s bottom. The key is to make the sequence smooth and avoid jerky movements. The angle is important because it helps you keep control of your baby.
