Pediatrician Dr. Robert Hamilton shares a secret of the trade in how to calm a crying baby.  He suggests that you hold them at a 45 degree angle and shake, shake, shake their booty.  

Who knows why it works? Maybe the baby is too confused to cry any more when someone suddenly starts wiggling their butt around. If you're a parent of a newborn, this video may be lifesaving. Even if you're not it's worth the watch for the calming ambiance and adorable, tiny humans.

The loneliest boy in all of Britain lives on an island with a population of 70 people. His name is Aron and according to the Telegraph, he is the only school aged boy on the island so his closest friends are  "his dog, some ducks and flocks of sheep".

Aron used to have a few friends and brothers to play with but they all left the island to go to secondary school on another island two hours away. He's normally a pretty happy kid but his mother expressed some concern now that he's really the only kid left on the island.

This prompted a reddit user and moderator on r/Scotland to ask his fellow users to spread some holiday cheer in this post:

T
he response was overwhelmingly positive, but we'll probably have to wait until Christmas to see just how far the message spread when Aron recieves his cards at school. 

Mom, Dad—are you on Reddit?

Parents on the site were given this question: What is one shocking secret your kids will never learn about you?

And then they spilled the beans...

Nibbles thinks he’s a dog, and it’s the cutest thing ever.

Watch as this Rouen duck waits patiently for his best human friend Johnny to come home from school, and as soon as the boy is in sight, he completely loses it.

Johnny also greets him with a few kisses on his bill once all the quacking starts dying down a bit.

It’s only a matter of time before he learns to bark.

His owners explain that Nibbles wears a tiny diaper so that he can go on car rides and spend time in their house.

Do yourself a favor and check out the rest of the clips on their YouTube channel.

Here they are going for a walk down the street together set to “Stand By Me.”

And here he is eating Johnny’s homework, just like a dog is supposed to do.

He describes it as just a “typical Friday night with my nature loving daughter,” while she remembers it as the last time she was ever able to look at a bird without bursting into tears.

In this video a dad is hanging out by a pond with his daughter, when she decides to go around the other side to pay a visit to a friendly goose.

But the bird does not enjoy being bothered by the pesky human, and so it takes things into his own hands/wings.

While the girl flees and screams in terror, her father finds the whole things absolutely hilarious.

What’s not so funny: the vertical video.

This is certainly a dance that they will never forget, mainly because there’s hardly any dancing involved.

Jim Mickunas wanted to do something special for his daughter Kandice on her wedding day, so he turned their father/daughter dance into a game of catch.

“My daughter has always found her own path,” he writes in the video’s caption, adding that she played a lot of sports as a kid. “I could not imagine having a traditional father daughter dance with her. That is not what we were or are. So I came up with this.”

The moment starts out as you might expect, with the two on the dance floor and Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World” playing in the background.

But then her dad stops away as a man hands them both baseball gloves and the music suddenly changes to John Fogerty’s “Centerfield.”

And with that move Jim becomes MVP and father of the year.

He also eventually subs in his new son-in-law.

“I had no idea he had it planned,” Kandice said. “Made me tear up when he handed the glove to my husband.”

You might need to 3D print yourself a Kleenex after watching this.

Thirty-year-old Tatiana Guerra lost her sight when she was 17, and now she is 20 weeks pregnant.

Just in time for Mother’s Day, Huggies Brazil has released a new video called “Meeting Murilo” in which Guerra receives a very special surprise.

In the clip, Guerra is having an ultrasound done, and the doctor asks her how she imagines his face.

“Oh I imagine him, well… his nose like a little potato. A small mouth, a chubby little hand,” she replies. “I can’t wait to smell him.”

While she can’t see the image herself, the doctors secretly 3D-print the image and present it to her so she can feel and “meet” her child for the very first time.

At the top of the sculpture “I am your son” is also printed in braille.

“I’m very happy to meet Murilo before he’s born,” she says in tears of joy. “Thanks, Doctor.”

It’s basically the opposite of how Princess Leia felt when she saw Han Solo trapped in carbonite for the first time.
