There’s not much that makes you feel as helpless as watching a crying baby. Maybe it’s because they can’t communicate yet, or maybe it’s just because they’re so tiny and vulnerable, but that downturned bottom lip and those surprisingly powerful wails can turn even the calmest person into a flustered mess.
One clever dad named Eli Spector from San Francisco has found the key to calming his little babe and it is seriously one the most adorable moments captured on video we’ve ever seen. Faced with a baby who was REALLY missing his mum while she was out running errands, Eli took the advice of a friend and grabbed one of his wife’s dirty t-shirts from the laundry and handed it to his distressed little guy. What happens next is a little bit of magic…
Eli shared the footage in the hope it might help out his fellow dads, saying “I hope this video is shared enough to help another dad out of a fussy situation with their little one.”
It might not work for everyone, but it’s totally worth a try and just too damn cute not to share.
