For a new parent nothing can make the stress levels rise quicker than a baby that won't stop crying. No matter what they do, what technique they use, that baby just will not stop. But there is hope. And that hope comes in the form of the method used by pediatrician Dr Bob (that's Dr. Robert Hamilton to me and you).
In the video above he shares some insider tips on how to quell the upset when a baby goes nuclear and can't be calmed no matter what. It's all down to the angle you hold them, according to the Santa Monica-based doc.
His failsafe technique is called The Hold, which sees him pick up the tiny human, fold both arms and then hold the arms and their bottom.
Then you gently shake them up and down at a 45 degree angle, and then sort of twerk their bottom for them too.
And you know what? It works. He tries The Hold on numerous babies and each one of them calms down pretty much instantly. And that makes it essential viewing for any parent of a newborn baby.
It's as easy as that.
However, once they stop being a newborn though, you're completely on your own.
