How A Pediatrician Calms A Crying Baby

There are few sounds worse than that of crying baby. And there are none as beautiful as the silence of a calmed baby. Witness this beautiful contrast in one truly adorable video as Santa Monica-based Pediatrician Robert Hamilton shows parents how to calm their babies with a move he’s patented during his three decades in the baby business.

Dr. Bob, the Metro tells us this is his preferred moniker, shows us his failsafe solution during an immunisation procedure. He takes the crying baby in hand, folds the infant’s scrambling hands into its chest and supports his little patient’s bottom with his right hand. He then rocks the baby who desists and transforms into ?a cooing bundle of cuteness. Whatever this magic move is, it’s making that baby happy, its parents happy, and us happy.
