Ainsley Brought in Little Hayden! ... and Learned a Baby-Calming Trick
Ainsley Earhardt stopped by “Fox and Friends” this morning with a very special little guest – her adorable one-month-old daughter, Hayden!
Hayden was born a happy, healthy little girl in November. She is Ainsley and her husband Will’s first child.
Dr. Robert Hamilton, a California pediatrician famed for showing parents how to calm their crying babies, also visited the set.
He offered the new mom a live demonstration of his quick trick.
“Real quickly, we fold one arm in front, we put them in a prone position,” he explained.
Dr. Hamilton showed Ainsley how to gently hold baby Hayden from the bottom and rock her at a 45-degree angle.
“Now mind you, this is a very gentle rocking up and down,” he added.
Though the position may look “counterintuitive,” it works because “you’re neurologically overwhelming them,” the pediatrician explained.
He said if a baby still cries, it probably means they're hungry, not feeling well or in need of a change.
