A new father demonstrates a novel technique for getting a crying baby to sleep in a hilarious home video.

Nunzio Raso from Ontario, Canada, is seen climbing into his daughter Michela’s crib after his efforts to soothe her from the sidelines fail to work.

Immediately, once he’s hoisted himself over the railings and lay down, everything goes silent, as little Michela snuggles up on his chest and dozes off.

Although Mr. Raso’s video is three-minutes and 48-seconds long, he said he was stuck in the crib for six hours.

Luckily the crib was able to hold up to 250lbs.

Ms. Raso’s video has been watched more than 10.2 million times since it was uploaded on November 24 2009, with viewers deeming it ‘cute’ and ‘adorable’.

Mr. Raso, 48, continues to upload clips of Michela, now aged five, and his other children to his YouTube channel.
