Who doesn’t know it – this unbelievable desperation that babies convey when they scream and cry with all their might. Before long, the parents are mobilized and do everything they can to comfort their little one and solve his problems.
If a baby cries in a public place – for example in a café, on a bus or on the street – then But it’s not just the parents who get nervous. There is something so poignant about a child’s cry that even strangers become restless and want to help.
Now a doctor from the USA has developed a grip technique, with which he is said to be able to soothe any crying newborn in a matter of seconds. If that’s true, infinitely many people in this world will be indescribably grateful to him!!!
1.Cry of a child
New parents are confronted with many challenges. And changing diapers is honestly one of the easiest exercises. At least after a few times you know how things are going.
But what is really difficult: interpreting the language of a baby correctly. Because language expresses itself primarily through whimpering, crying, screaming and yelling. And then mums and dads can guess what the reason for the loud screaming tirade is.
Is she hungry? Is she tired? Diapers full? These are the first points to be dealt with. But if none of this is true and the baby is still crying like everyone has abandoned him, then the parents are definitely on their nerves.
2. A thousand methods
The market is full of tools for parents with which they are supposed to calm down their little antics more or less successfully. Every newborn is unique and has individual preferences accordingly.
Some love the sound of a roaring radio, because it is supposed to be reminiscent of noises in the womb. Others prefer melodies or the sound of raindrops on a corrugated roof.
Others come to rest in a special baby hammock. Or they need a lot of freedom and want to roll over to sleep . There are swaddles, night lights, vibrators for strollers, bouncers,… Desperate parents can spend big bucks to find some way to help their crying baby. Is it useful?
3. crying baby
It is normal for babies to cry. This is how they express that they need something. And yes – even a happy baby without any illnesscan sometimes cry and scream for up to three hours a day.
You only talk about crying babies when the little ones scream at least three hours a day and all this several days a week. On average, every fifth child is affected. </ p>
How much the screaming gets to the parents’ kidneys varies. But one thing is for sure: Nobody stays really cool! There is a greater risk that parents nervously call a doctor or lose their nerve over the constant noise.
4. When to call for help?
Often the cause of high-pitched screams is not an organic problem. Most babies who cry for a long time and often are overstimulated and overwhelmed by external impulses. And they have a hard time calming themselves down. As a result, over-excited babies find it hard to fall asleep, become more and more over-excited and then start roaring like crazy.
In the Overexcited babies usually need more rest, structure and care. And of course there are so-called cry ambulances for desperate parents. Because every mom and dad knows how a crying child can push you to the limits of your mind.
BUT: Maybe it can the method of pediatrician Robert Hamilton can also help. It can definitely be used on all newborns and small babies.
5. The Hamilton Technique
Dr. Robert Hamilton has been a pediatrician for over 30 years. The Californian doctor and his team have examined and treated countless newborns. He knows their sensitivities, their stress triggers, their emotional needs.
And Dr. Hamilton knows: When a baby cries, the parents are often stressed. And when the parents are stressed, it in turn transfers to the child. From many years of experience in everyday practice, he has developed a special handle with which he can calm small crying babies in seconds.
Of course, he admits that his technique is not a hundred percent guarantee. But YouTube videos show him in his method. And millions of people who have seen and used his grip give Dr. Hamilton right.
6. Only for newborns
Of course, parents should always be aware that their child is not sick or hungry at the moment. But once that has been clarified and can be ruled out, it is the right time for the Hamilton grip.
The grip can only be used for children up to three months. Then many are too big and too heavy to handle. But the first three months are the well-known months in which babies cry the most and for the longest. Even crying babies stop their “excessive crying” by the fourth month of life.
The Technology developed by Robert Hamilton has become an important tool for parents and families worldwide. Even midwives and nurses swear by it.
7. Everything under control
“The Hold”, as Robert Hamilton iscalls a famous grip consists of four steps. As soon as the little cryer is safely in his hands, according to the experience of the experienced pediatrician, he stops crying within seconds. With its handle, Hamilton gives babies of all different natures a deep sense of safety and security. It’s amazing.
And the technique itself is so simple that it can really be used by anyone.The decisive factors are calm, mindfulness and careful implementation. More than 30 million times people have listened closely to Hamilton’s explanation of the technique.
We explain step by step how Hamilton’s “miracle grip”is used. So: take a deep breath, maybe warm your hands a bit, stay confident and off you go.
8. Step 1
The baby is carefully grasped from behind with the right hand. The doctor’s right hand is already fixing the baby’s right arm. With his left hand, Hamilton grasps the newborn’s left hand and gently presses it on their small chest.
If you want to replicate the method, think about this too, really to stay calm. It’s always hard when a little baby is crying its heart out. Staying calm then seems like an insurmountable obstacle. But try it anyway, take a deep breath and do everything without hectic basic tension.
Back to the baby’s arms: These should be crossed over each other in front of the chest being. With an adult hand, the fists and arms can be carefully fixed on the chest.
9. Step 2 and 3
Once the first step has been mastered, the procedure for the second step becomes a little easier. When fixing his little arms, Hamilton changes from his right to his left hand and holds it like this the newborn. The baby’s weight is shifted to the doctor’s palm.
The baby is leaned slightly forward (as shown in the picture). With his right hand, Dr. Robert Hamilton’s baby in a diaper. The baby’s weight is evenly distributed over both adult hands.
One holds and continues to fix the little arms of the newborn, the other secures it from below with the handle on the bottom. So the child has a stable position.
10. Step 4
And due to the slight forward tilt, the baby cannot get out if it unexpectedly throws its head back. Last but not least, gently rock>the baby back and forth. The little head may even lie relaxed with the chin on the adult hand.
Thanks to the safe posture, the bending forward and the gentle rocking, the baby can relax in seconds. If it was just crying, the desperation will soon give way to a neutral or positive attitude.
Dr. Hamilton is very gentle with the newborns. He is confident and compassionate. And this inherent calm and sovereignty does not leave the little screamers unscathed.
11. Highlight on TV
No wonder that even the big TV stations want to have the doctor with the relaxation grip in their shows. In doing so, they secure the ratings of all parents in the USA. And because dr. Hamilton is so confident in his method that he is not afraid to successfully demonstrate again and again how he comforts the little crying babies.
Of course, viewers react enthusiastically, mothers can see their eyes and Can’t believe my ears, fathers are finally hoping for several hours of sleep at night – or at least more rest.
Since Fox News, one of the largest news programs in the USA</ strong>, dr. Hamilton’s “Hold” was broadcast live, Hamilton is hyped as a downright baby whisperer.
12. A handle goes around the world
What works with American babies also works equally well anywhere else in the world. In the picture above, Hamiltonshows young mothers in Tanzania how they can balance their stressed-out protégés.
In total, the ambitious physician has done more than 20 missions outside the USA in Latin America and Africa to help parents and children there as well. Of course, the “hold” was used again and again.
Where does his enormous sovereignty come from? It is certainly also due to the fact that Dr. Hamilton himself is a father to 6 children and grandfather to 7 grandchildren. Added to this is his knowledge as a doctor. That really speaks for itself.
13. Calm, love, hold
Hamilton’s grip is certainly a great approach. But if mom or dad gets completely bogged down, only gets more nervous and in the end is afraid that his crying baby will slip away, you should always remember the following:
The most important things for a baby are always love and safety. If parents, relatives or friends find themselves in a situation where a child is screaming at the top of their lungs and just doesn’t want to stop, the following still applies: Teach, calm down, persevere!
It is crucial to convey to the child that someone is there. You can always stop irritating influences, for example when the television is on somewhere. Silence is good, gentle coaxing is good, physical contact is good. A change of room can also help. Or even a walk. And before you get really nervous, make sure you get help.Because shared suffering is really much better to endure!
