Crying babies have a habit of being quite loud, and when you are a Doctor trying to communicate with concerned parents the background noise can be a massive hindrance.
But this paediatrician has nailed a method of soothing infants who are in distress, and he is sharing his secret.
Robert Hamilton has worked with kids and newborns for nearly 30 years in Santa Monica, California, and his technique called ‘The Hold’ certainly does seem to work.
Check out the video below where he calms several babies, including one that is understandably unhappy about receiving a vaccination in the leg.
So avoid any sudden jerky movements, and gently ‘shake their booty’. Hey presto, peace and quiet is hopefully yours.
