The renowned American physician Robert Hamilton with 30 years of experience working in pediatrics reveals a simple and effective way to help calm the crying baby in a few seconds.
This method is so quick and easy that you wouldn’t believe it the first time.
In the fight with the children crying, parents often resort to various methods: rocking, holding back and forth, and singing to the child. However, according to the experienced pediatrician, there is a more efficient way, which will help parents soothe the nervous baby.
Robert Hamilton says the secret lies in a special position in which you hold the baby.
Parents must cross the baby’s arms on its chest, then carefully, holding the baby in the area of the chest, swing it at an angle of 45 degrees, up and down.
‘Everything you do is very gentle, you don’t want to do any jerky motions ever,’ Dr Hamilton advices.
‘You hold the child with the fleshy part of your hand [the palm] not the fingertips, and I am supporting his chin, which is why I am holding him at a 45 degree angle.’
He adds that The Hold works best for babies up to three months as they then become too heavy.
