A dad calming his newborn baby has become an Internet sensation, and has already reached over 28 million views. In the adorable video, the dad calms his screaming baby in moments after making drawn out, calming humming sounds, and fellow parents were quick to discuss the sweet video. One wrote: "That is because his noise is mimicking the noise of that in the womb... loud and steady. This kinda stuff really works. Good Job dad." Another added: "Kid was a Buddhist monk in a past life."

Many parents and grandparents also shared their own experiences at humming to calm their little ones. One wrote: "I use to hum in my grandsons ear & it worked wonders. Then as he got older it was funny because if he was stirring in his sleep he would hum himself back to sleep. It works," while another added: "I used to talk to my granddaughter when she was in my daughter's belly. I'd say, 'Nana's baby girl.' The day she was born, I was in the O.R. when they put her on the scale, she was shaking and screaming. I walked over to her, put my finger to her hand and said, 'What's wrong with Nana's baby girl'? She immediately stopped crying and turned her face toward me! She knew my voice."

In a follow up video, the proud dad Daniel said: "I'm feeling so much. My heart feels so open. So appreciate all of your support and asking about the baby." Speaking about his wife, he continued: "Diana did amazing, I'm so humble. We're supposed to be pretty quiet with the baby… We love ya'll so much." He then showed their baby girl to the camera, saying: "She is ridiculous. She slept through the night. She's just made it easier on us… This is about as active as she's been."
