It’s pretty obvious that Hilaria Baldwin has her hands full while raising her four young kids, so it’s to no surprise that she comes up with some creative parenting techniques along the way. The latest technique she discovered? Wrapping her cranky kiddos in blankets and “squeezing the bad mood out.”
The most recent culprit is her five-year-old daughter, Carmen Baldwin, who Hilaria says was grouchy and in need of some major family cuddling. The mom-of-four took to Instagram to share her brilliant solution to improve her kid’s mood. See the adorable pic below!
“Carmen is crabby… so we made a Carmen sandwich!!!” Hilaria, 34, wrote in the caption. “We squeeze the bad mood out!” In the photo, Carmen can be seen visibly upset while tightly surrounded by her mama and brothers Leonardo and Rafael.
Users wrote on Hilaria’s post to say how they do this with their children, too! “Oh my goodness. My husband & I totally do that with my 19-month-old. I love it! Hope it worked!” one user commented. “I still do this with my babies who are 18 and 15!” wrote another user. A multitude of others expressed how good of a mother they think Hilaria is, as well as how cute her children are.
The Living Clearly Method: 5 Principles for a Fit Body, Healthy Mind & Joyful Life author shares her four children, Carmen, Rafael, 3, Leonardo, 2, and five-month-old Romeo, with her husband, Alec Baldwin. In March, the yoga instructor told People that her 26 year age difference with Alec, 60, has forced them to be more patient with each other’s parenting techniques.
“I’m the kind of person where I could get so wrapped up in my kids and I could lose my relationship a little bit and just assume, ‘Don’t you love doing this too? Isn’t this so much fun?'” Hilaria explained. “[Alec]’s a little bit more old school,” she said while explaining the reasoning. “‘You’re the mom, you take care of the kids, and then I will come and go and I will read a book with them every once in a while’ kind of thing.”
Their opposite parenting techniques seem to be working, as their four kiddos couldn’t possibly get any more adorable!
