Watch as Dr.
Hamilton demonstrates The Hold on a few crying babies as well as some pointers to take note of. It’s hard to believe that such a simple technique can be so effective!
Taking care of a newborn baby is tough. Constant attention is required and when the baby starts crying, you have to drop whatever you’re doing to see what the baby needs. This constant grind can leave you short on everything from money, sleep, and tempers. It’s no surprise that some parents practically drop off the social radar for a while once a newborn comes into the family.
But despite all the love and attention that one can give a baby, there are just some cases when the baby just won’t stop crying no matter what you do to try to pacify him/her. It’s easily a situation that can make you want to pull out your hair.
Thankfully, YouTube channel Mochu Nguyen introduces us to Dr.Robert Hamilton, a pediatrician who works out of Pacific Ocean Pediatrics over at Santa Monica, California.
In his over 30 years experience handling thousands of babies, Dr.Hamilton has discovered a very simple technique that is super effective at calming a crying baby. He simply refers to the technique as The Hold.
He says that if a baby doesn’t stop crying despite using the technique, it means he/she is either ill or hungry. But at least it will still help a parent identify if something is wrong.
