Lullabies have been used for centuries to get babies to sleep — with varying degrees of success — but one dad seems to have nailed the perfect method.
He recently uploaded a video to his BeardedPiano YouTube channel, showing him with his baby son Sam strapped to his chest in a BabyBjörn carrier as he sits at his keyboard. After the clip was posted to Reddit with the caption “A beard, a baby, and a bedtime”, it’s gone viral — for one simple reason.
It’s insanely adorable.
“Brahms ‘Lullaby’ has always been a favorite of mine,” BearderPiano captioned his video. “So when last night baby Sam was having a difficult time sleeping due to an earache [sic], I thought I’d take an impromptu attempt at playing Brahms ‘Lullaby’ to see if he would fall asleep. Here was the result …”
Check out little Sam nodding off to sleep to the sound of Brahms ‘Lullaby’ below.
