NOTHING is worse than trying to calm a crying baby when you feel like you've exhausted every option already.
But a baby expert has revealed the simple hold you need to try which will instantly soothe them.
Taking to TikTok, lactation consultant, Danielle Gauss, revealed that there's a position that helps calm them and helps burp them at the same time.
She said the position reminds babies of when they are in the womb with mum.
Danielle demonstrates how to recreate the position by placing her hand on their chest and holding the baby's cheeks.
Then, she takes the baby's knees and put them up to their chest and rests the baby's bum on her stomach to hit the pressure point on her bum.

In the video, she added: "This technique helps not only calm a very fussy baby, but it is also a great way to burp, using her natural acupressure points to calm the nervous system."
