Having a young child is certainly a big responsibility for parents.
They need to dedicate a lot of time and effort in ensuring that the child is well-taken care of. When the child is hungry, parents have to feed them; if the child is crying, it is quite difficult to calm them down. There are various methods that certain parents use to turn their little ones’ frowns upside down.
Through the video, a woman was seen sharing how her husband calmed their crying son as she was rushing to go out to work.
At first sight, the child was crying even when wrapped with the father’s kain pelikat. After that, the father tried his own method by placing their child in the mother’s batik cloth.

He then tried to lull the child and the child instantly stopped crying and wanted to fall asleep.
A child’s greatest comfort is always his mother’s arms, or in this case, her batik cloth.
Netizens praised the father for his quick-witted idea and was amazed with just how much of a contrast it made to the crying child.
Some of the comments include “Papa Hero of This Year 2021”, “Just like a baby kangaroo, cute!” and “You have the best husband, sis!”.
What are some of your ways of calming a crying child?
