The art to soothe a crying baby.

L’ art de calmer un bébé qui pleure

The art to soothe a crying baby.

English version below the pictures or video

Dimanche dernier, le 10 septembre, notre petite-fille, Julie, nous a emmenés chez sa mère Carole, que j’appelle la Duchesse. Elle était avec Elliot, son fils de 6 semaines.

Dès que nous sommes arrivés, Julie a nourri son bébé, puis il a fait  une «sieste» sur sa poitrine. C’était le calme


Near Janine, our granddaughter Julie has just fed Elliot  who takes a “nap” on her breast/.        Près de janine notre petite -fille Julie vient de nourrir Elliot qui fait maintenat une “sieste ” sur sa poitrine.

  Last Sunday  September 10 our granddaughter Julie took us to her mother Carole’s that I call the Duchess  She was with Elliot her 6 weeks old son.
  As soon as we were arrived Julie fed her baby. Afterwards he took a “nap” on her breast. It was the calm.

Mais que s’est-il passé ? Elliot a commencé à pleurer,puis de plus en plus. Peut-être  avait-il  encore faim ou encore  souffrait-il de coliques . Personne ne pouvait  l’apaiser. Tout à coup, le Chevalier Thierry a décidé qu’il pouvait le calmer.  La très courte vidéo ci-dessous montre cela.

 But,  what happened ? Elliot started to cry ,more and more . Perhaps he still was hungry or again he was suffering at his belly. No one was able to soothe him . All of a sudden the Knight Thierry decided he was able to calm him. The very short video above shows this .


J’ai été étonné du résultat et j’ai conclu que le Chevalier était doué, un véritable artiste, un expert en berceuses !! 🙂

Après, Elliot était très calme et si beau dans les bras de son arrière grand-mère Janine. Ensuite, sa grand-mère Carole a pu le laver et changer ses couches tranquillement. Quand nous sommes rentrés à la maison Elliot a dormi dans la voiture!


The grandmothern, the Duchess Carole, is changing the diapers of Elliot                                        La grand-mère, la duchesse Carole change la couche d’Elliot

 I was amazed with the result and concluded the Knight was gifted , a true artist , an expert in lullabies !! 🙂

 Afterwards Elliot was very calm and so beautiful in the arms of his great grandmother Janine . Then, his grandmother Carole could wash him  and changes the diapers quietly. When we went back home Elliot slept in the car!

    Notice the walking and talking to the baby. 🙂 I used to rock our children, again motion, but I was able to sing those years.

  5. What a beautiful baby! When it comes to soothing, babies seem to all speak the same language. God bless you and your family! ❤

  6. Aw!!! Elliot is growing so quickly! He is so cute!
    Yes, Grandpas know the magic of quieting the crying babies.
    I’m sure The Knight has done this before. 🙂
    Every baby needs wonderful parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents like Elliot has! 🙂 Elliot is blessed! AND your family is blessed to have him!
    HUGS!!! and ❤ 🙂

    A beautiful video, Michel! Thank you for sharing these special family moments with us. The Knight Thierry does have a special talent for soothing crying babies! 🙂

    Oh, I’m sure he would have been able to calm down my eldest daughter when she was a baby. She cried from 8.30 at night until midnight-1 am.

    Thank you for sharing with us. ♡

  9. What a wonderful video! Some people really do have a way with babies! Did you take a 4 generation picture of your family? That is a very precious thing to have!

    It is fun to have the new life in the house!

    I truly think that grandparents are great at calming babies. Knight has the talent, too. When our first grandchild was born, he had colic, and cried quite a bit. I would do what was later called “The Mimi Shuffle’—a shuffling and lightly bouncing, while singing a Cajun (French/Canadian/southern) lullaby called “Gue, Gue, Solingaie”. Used it on all the grands, and it worked. Too bad I did not think of it with my own boys!! It is wonderful that you got to spend time with them. Those times together are so precious as we get older!! God bless all of you!! ❤ ❤ Nancy and Ken

    • I found your Cajun song on Google, Nancy . It was an efficient lullaby..
      At my beginnings on Xanga in 2001 I was in touch with a Cajun . I wondered at this time what it was . He explained to me but did not stay long on Xanga..

  12. totally talented 😉 It was the loving, calming, touch of the great grandad. Love it. I enjoyed the video very much. Hugs,

    Oh my! Thierry can be a paid nanny!! what a sweet little baby and that’s what babies do… They cry! They eat, they sleep, and they mess intheir diapers…

  14. julie essex says:

    The Knight has a great gift , a lovely video that we see all the family in. Elliot is growing so fast.

  15. Perhaps the Chevalier has a special vocal tone that the baby likes! What a talent he has to calm the baby 😉

  16. Grandparents always seem to have that ‘special something’ to calm a crying baby. It may have been the vocal tone that was so soothing. Maybe grandpa and grandson where having a private little conversation. So sweet, 4 generation all in one room. ❤

    I absolutely love this post! I wish I had somebody to hold me in my arms so I could sleep !!!

  18. jstnotherday says:

    My goodness, this made me smile.
    I just love grandfathers with babies. Grandpa’s always have a soothing effect… more like maybe, a mesmerizing effect, on babies.

  19. Marion Manson says:

    Amazing – he has the gift!! 🙂

  20. mcbery says:

    Awww….so sweet. I think some people have a knack for nurturing and babies are tuned in to that channel. 🙂 Blessings to the new little one and his loved ones. It doesn’t last long.

  21. cocosangel says:

    It is super, to experience the new born baby. I am sure Elliot knows how to keep you all fussing over him. 🙂 And who can blame you! 😀
    The Knight is doing a good job of soothing the baby.

  22. Zakiah says:

    That is wonderful. The babies are so comfortable with the warmth of a body that holds them close. I was in the beauty salon one time, and a mother was getting her hair colored. She had an infant son in the basket. He started crying uncontrollably. The ladies at the salon tried to hold him rock him abut that kid just wouldn’t quit. I was getting my pedicure done, and I asked one of the ladies to give me the baby. I took him and held his little body against my body (chest) and that was it. Instantly the baby stopped crying. If you hold the baby in the arms, without that warmth of close contact, they will continue to cry.
    I am so glad your great grand son was so happy in Knight’s arms. \

  23. Susan Joos says:

    That was amazing! He has a true gift!

  24. puffpop says:

    How precious. He is a lucky little baby to be born in your family…surrounded by love.
    Babies are so special.

  25. Isabel Capillas says:

    The baby feels comfortable in his grandpa’s arms. Such a heartwarming video.❤

  26. nannyfountain says:

    Love conquers all…even a crying baby ❤

  27. What a lovely post, Michel. Thank you, I remember those days of trying to soothe a baby and we were all so happy when it worked.

  28. Larry says:

    Amazing indeed, Michel – I love the video! You all have the magic touch on how to soothe the baby! Thank you for sharing this. You have a beautiful family! Cheers!

  29. L. Marie says:

    How lovely!!! What a sweet baby.
    My father was good at soothing babies. They would come to him and go to sleep quickly.

    Mornin Glorie (again) Babies need a peaceful environment, they also need for people to talk and sing to them and hold them like Zakiah said! Not to boast but I have a way with babies also, they know how precious they are to me. I sing hymns and lullabies, even french ones like Frere Jacques and one in english and french called Chanson Pour les Petites Enfant. I so enjoyed the video!!! ILYM

  31. Wow – he is good. I don’t do well with crying babies. They seem to cry louder when I try to hold them.
