Pediatrician shows how to calm a child in seconds with “The Hold”. A doctor’s tutorial on how to calm a crying baby in seconds has become a blockbuster on YouTube, racking up millions of views in just a few days. Call him a baby whisperer or a pediatric YouTube star.
Dr. Robert Hamilton, a practitioner at Pacific Ocean Pediatrics in Santa Monica, California, said his patients have asked him “a million times” to share his advice online. When he finally uploaded the video on Sunday, it was the first video he had ever posted, and as of Thursday morning it had nearly 6 million views. “I’m a little humiliated,” Hamilton told TODAY to Parents. “I never in my wildest dreams thought this would happen.”
