Who said there was only one way to hold a baby? OK, sure, perhaps there’s one (or two) proper ways to hold a newborn baby, but once they’re able to support their own heads with their cute little necks, the sky is the limit.
At least that’s the good word from this dad, who has all other dads beat when it comes to the creativity behind holding a baby. In under one minute, Jordan Watson demonstrates more than a dozen ways to hold an adorable baby girl, whose perfect behaviour during the entire thing just elevates the cuteness level to all new heights.
What do we mean by all kinds of ways to hold a baby? Well, there are the standard, tried-and-true dad positions, such as what Watson calls the “Standard Shoulder Hold” or the “Reverse Standard Shoulder Hold.” Then there are the obvious ones, like “Stinky Nappy For Me” and “Stinky Nappy For You.”
But it’s when he gets to moves like “Box of Beers,” “Baby Jesus,” “Bird on a Wire” and “Hide Ya Beer Belly” that we just can’t stop smiling. How can you not, when Watson executes a perfect “Rugby Ball Hold” with a cute little baby?
Although, you really do have to see it for yourself to get the full effect. Check out the video below, and see why Watson may have just upped the ante for all other child-holding dads out there…
