This is a video of pediatrician Dr. Robert Hamilton demonstrating "the hold", the best way he's found to calm a crying baby during his 30 year experience of dealing with crying babies. Crying babies: that is not a job for me. Anybody here have a crying baby and want to test this out for us? I want to know if it works. Alternatively, deal with crying babies the same way I do: hand it to somebody else and leave the room.
Keep going for the video, but skip to around a minute unless you want to feel like you're sitting in a doctor's office waiting to hear bad news.
Thanks to Stephanie B, who was a calm baby who never cried. Me? I started crying the moment I was born and didn't stop till I was 14.
