A mom named Becky Wilko took to TikTok to share her top tip for getting struggling babies to sleep and in a video demonstrating how her crying child is asleep in seconds
One woman has shared a technique for putting babies to sleep — she says it works every time, even when her child isn’t in the best mood.
Becky Wilko, who uploads to TikTok as @beckywilko82, shared a video with her followers saying her baby has been crying for hours and refusing to sleep.
In the clip, she said she was having “one of those days” with her youngest son, who was suffering from colic, and she looked a little stressed.
But then she brings him in the tiger in the tree hold, and soon the boy settles down instantly — and now other parents are saying they wish they’d known the hold sooner.
What do you think of Becky’s advice? Let us know in the comments…
In the clip, which has since gone viral with over 400,000 views, Becky said: “Okay, I held it like this before I didn’t know what it was.
“An hour later he’s fast asleep!”
In the clip, instead of cradling her son, the youngest of four, she turns him over so his stomach is resting on her arm.
She then performs another hold for colicky babies where she gets her son’s fists and places him back on his chest.
Then, as she holds his fist, she rocks him and he immediately stops crying.
