Baby Benjamin won’t eat unless he watches Gangnam Style


As any parent knows, feeding a fussy baby can be really hard work. It would take more than an hour just to feed Benjamin lunch. We had tried all different kinds of techniques to get him to eat his vegetables without fussing, including mixing yoghurt and fruit in, and playing Sesame Street videos (which was only effective in short bursts), but none of them were nearly as effect as Gangnam Style.

I first discovered the hypnotic effect Gangnam Style had on Benjamin a few days prior to filming the video. I really enjoyed the video and I was always curious if Benjamin would like it too. The first time I introduced it to him at a mealtime, I literally fed him in less than half the time.

I was really amazed about how well it worked and how effective it was at calming him down. Since that time, the video has been really helpful in getting him to eat, and we’ve used it a bunch of times to great effect, and he’s getting all the nutrition he needs as a growing baby.

We only play him videos during mealtimes when he is fussing excessively, and when we need him to eat so he doesn’t get hungry. We don’t allow him to watch lots of TV at any other time, and we only feed him as much as he needs – my wife wouldn’t have it any other way!

I hope that you enjoyed the video, and that it made you smile as much as we did when we first found out.
