In the clip, which has over 550,000 likes and 2300 comments, the mum demonstrated?how to do the "wiggle butt," starting off by making sure her son, Knox's?head and upper back is supported, reminding people to hold the infant tightly on your shoulder.

Then, she makes her hand into a 'C' shape, or as she calls it, a "Barbie" hand, which she hooks underneath the Knox's bottom.

"This is a gentle motion. Do not force their legs to shift or move!" she reminds people.
