You probably tried everything - singing, shushing, rocking and even dancing along to a nice song. Then, of course, you soon figured out that just because something worked yesterday does not mean it will work today so you realise that creativity is just part of being a parent.
Soothing a crying child can sometimes test your patience. The internet is filled with so many ideas and methods for getting this done. While some might work, others even end up making things worse. At the end of the day, we just want to know, is there an efficient method of calming a crying baby? This is the 21st century, surely, someone would have invented something that will save parents from losing their minds, right?

Dr Robert Hamilton is a paediatrician in Santa Monica who recently went viral after he shared a simple demonstration for how to stop a crying baby. He referred to this as 'The Hold' and according to him, he has used this process to calm infants during office visits.
