A video of a 5- month-old-baby boy has been viewed over 13 million times since being uploaded to Facebook on the 31st March.
Kent Siri from Texas US, shared a number of clips he’d taken of his son, Kaden, when he’d wake up in the morning and be unwrapped from his swaddle.
Five-month-old Kaden would smile the moment he was unwrapped and lift his hands in the air as if to say ‘I’m FREE’. The same reaction would be repeated each day.
A video was created using Siri’s clips.
The video was shared on Kaden’s Facebook page, where it has been viewed over 12 million times.
Siri wrote on Facebook in response,
“Whoa. What happened here?”
“We are completely shocked at the overwhelming response to our little guy’s morning wake up routine.”
Siri told BuzzFeed News: “Kaden has a strong startle reflex, also known as the Moro reflex, which causes him to jolt a lot at night and wake himself up.
“Swaddling makes him feel safe and secure and helps him sleep. His arms pop up like that because he’s stoked to start the day.”
No matter how many times we watch the clip, we can’t help but smile. If only we had Kaden’s reaction when getting out of bed…
