Anyone who has ever taken care of a newborn knows calming one isn’t always easy.
Now, after years of practice, Dr. Robert Hamilton says he has found the trick to instantly quieting a crying baby.
It involves just a little shake of the booty, really.
The pediatrician, who has been working in Santa Monica for over 30 years, is so confident his method works, he has made a YouTube video to help all parents get a little peace and quiet.
Dr. Hamilton calls this technique, “The Hold.”
He says you should try folding the baby`s arms across their front and gently hold them down with one hand.
Then, with your other hand, gently shake the baby’s bottom, while rocking the child up and down.
