So you’re with a baby and they won’t stop crying. You’ve fed them, changed them, busted out all of the tricks in your bag and they just won’t stop.
What do you do?
Last week, Daniel Eisenman posted this video on his Facebook page, which quickly went viral:
A simple, soothing “Om” sound and seconds later, blissful silence. So genius in its simplicity. No wonder my last resort noise (me sobbing uncontrollably, pleading with the kid to hush. Just kidding!) never worked.
Excited by this breakthrough, I couldn’t wait to test this new silencer method out on KJ when all other options failed. The result?
Yeah, that ish didn’t work. It just made him more riled up. He had his little dukes up by the end, like he wanted to punch me out, for making that sound.
However, if you’re like me, and you felt a bit let down by Mr. Eisenman’s technique, don’t fret, my pet.
See, the principles to the technique are solid. Thus, if “Om” doesn’t work…….
Try making some other random noises!
For example, I called this one A Case Of The Yips:
It was a bad case, because four minutes later, I was still yipping:
Here’s the creepy Ric Flair (Whoo!):
Don’t you know? About the bird?! Everybody knows that the bird is the word:
Here’s the broken buzzer:
Finally, if you’re whistling game is on point (note: my whistling game is not on point), try the Chill Bill:
Make the right noise, and your baby will stop crying in seconds!
I don’t know. I can’t actually guarantee that.
Regardless, if they do stop crying, don’t thank me. No, for real, I’m just a guy on the internet who ripped off someone else’s better idea.
Thank Daniel Eisenman.
