A technique devised by Robert C Hamilton, MD, a famous pediatrician in Santa Monica, California, is sweeping the internet by storm.
He explains the difficulty that pediatricians encounter when caring for newborn babies: communicating adequately with their parents. During their visits to the pediatrician, many babies cry a lot.
Dr. Robert Hamilton demonstrates “The Hold,” a technique that instantaneously calms a wailing baby. He then proceeds to the consultation room, where a few babies had recently received their immunization jabs.
The babies were crying uncontrollably and needed to be soothed. Dr. Hamilton cradles the crying infant in his arms. He folds his right arm and left arm together near the baby’s chest.
Following that, he gently holds the diaper area and gently rocks the baby up and down, comforting the child. Then he gently stirs the baby. Then he repeats the procedure on the other babies, with fantastic results.
The baby has stopped crying and appears to be content. Dr. Hamilton, on the other hand, recommends that the baby be comforted at a 45-degree angle so that the person holding the baby does not lose control of the child.
Even the chin must be supported to prevent the head from rolling backward. This technique is excellent for soothing crying babies and is one of the best ways to soothe children.
