Pediatrician Reveals Amazing Secret to Calm Crying Babies in Just Seconds

This gives new meaning to the phrase “shaken, not stirred…”

What can be more frustrating than a crying baby who just won’t stop? Any parent can attest their to their desperation when trying to get a wailing infant to cease screaming, short of shoving a boob or bottle into a howling mouth. Babies cry for many reasons, and when all else fails, it can mean sleepless nights for parents, as well as complaints from the neighbors.

They haven’t met Dr. Robert Hamilton yet, apparently. This 30-year veteran pediatrician from Santa Monica, California’s Pacific Ocean Pediatrics can get babies to stop crying in seconds!

Oh, hush-hush-hush before they call Social Service on us…

Um, no… it doesn’t involve strangling the poor little angels.

And his secret? The great doctor just gives them a little shake.

Seriously.

Wiggle it…just a little bit.

Dr. Hamilton’s baby shake method isn’t going to give an infant the dreaded “shaken baby syndrome,” however. The gentle doctor has a time-proven technique to get wailing infants – whether they be hungry, cold, in pain, or colicky – to become as calm as a summer breeze on a sweltering day.

Carefully lifting up the crying infant, Dr. Hamilton places his right hand underneath the baby’s butt, and with his left hand, gently folds the baby’s arms across the chest.

He then proceeds to wiggle the infant’s behind.

Dr. Hamilton shows parents how to give the baby his very first “twerking” lesson.

The secure hold on the baby immediately causes the crying to stop, and the gentle jiggling soothes the baby even further.

Dr. Hamilton, despite his creative and amazingly effective method, has a very commonplace name for his near-miraculous trick.

He calls it “The Hold.” Not that it has anything to do with professional wrestling.

In all the years parents have struggled, begged, pleaded, and cried for their babies to cease their wailing, a pediatrician had an answer to their dilemma all along.

Where were you when we needed you, Dr. Hamilton?

Watch and be amazed.

By

Thanksgiving is just a few days away! This celebration is usually spent in the company of family members, eating and drinking together and generally having a blast of a time enjoying each other's company. While some prefer going out of town to spend their Thanksgiving in lush resorts or exotic places, most still uphold the tradition of preparing a Thanksgiving feast for the whole family. Of course, who can forget the most important dish - the iconic roast turkey?

Stock photos depicting Thanksgiving would almost always include a roast turkey somewhere. However, preparation of this dish is no joke - the fowl itself is costly and takes a lot of hours of thawing, marinading, and roasting for the perfect dish. And it doesn't end there - after roasting the turkey to perfection, the next task is equally daunting - carving.
