Sadly, a crying baby doesn't have an off switch. Or does it?
OK, it's not exactly an off switch, but Pediatrician Robert Hamilton recently made a video demonstrating how to get a baby to stop that terrible howling when you're in a restaurant. Or any other time it's howling. Apparently, you just fold its arms and jiggle its butt. That's easier than turning off a Furby.
To be exact, the process goes like this: 1. Fold arms across chest, 2. Secure arms gently, 3. Grasp diaper area, and 4. Rock at a 45-degree angle.
But watch the video for a full demonstration, and please only use this technique on your own babies.
