“I’m going to show you my trick for getting a good burp out of your baby,” Tay says in the clip that has since attracted over 530,000 likes and 2280 comments.
“It looks ridiculous, but it works AWESOME!”
Tay then demonstrates how to hold your baby – support their head and upper back and hold them tightly on your shoulder.
Then you form what she refers to as a “Barbie hand” and hook it underneath your baby’s bottom.

“Holding their head, shift their legs back and forth,” she says in the clip.
The on-screen warning says, “This is a GENTLE motion. Do not force their legs to shift or move!”
You then hear the baby burp and Tay says “There it is!”
“I didn’t come up with this,” she says.
“I found it on YouTube from a chiropractor when Knox was a newborn and we had a hard time getting him to burp. In our family, we call it the wiggle butt and it works like 99.9 per cent of the time.”
The comments were filled with grateful parents, who we hope are all enjoying some more productive shut-eye since the video was shared.

One said “packing my bags to go to my sister’s house just to feed my nephew and try this on him today.”
Another added, “One of my nurses taught me this after having my daughter but she called it the hula!”
“I just tried this cause I was already holding my son and he burped super loud,” chimed in another.
And one person said, “You literally saved my life with this. THANK YOU.”
There were a few people eager to try it on their own kids, with some amazing results.
“My four-and-a-half-month-old twins have always been hard to burp,” said one commenter. “I tried this and OHHH MYYY GOOOSSHH! Worked like a charm!”
“Omg I am totally trying this… our newborn won’t burp and all our other kids did just fine… we have been stumped,” added another.
When she was asked for an update on the situation, she later added, “Yes! It has [worked] every feeding since we started yesterday!”
