"Before we got Gideon's diagnosis, we found it odd this was the ONLY way we could stop his crying. At 7 months old, he was diagnosed with something Peroxisomal Biogenesis Disorder which among other complications has left him legally blind and severe-to-profoundly deaf.

Before baby Gideon was diagnosed with peroxisomal biogenesis disorder at 7 months old, the Jolicoeur family was stumped when it came to calming down their baby when he was crying . . . until they discovered the magic of raspberries.
In a video recorded by Gideon's mom and posted to Facebook, we see the tiny baby uncontrollably crying, until his dad swoops in and saves the day with a raspberry or two. Judging by the relaxed look on the infant's face, it definitely appears to be working.
Peroxisomal biogenesis disorder, a medical condition that affects human cells, often leaves children blind and can lead to loss of hearing as well, so it's no surprise that little Gideon took a shining to some skin-to-skin action. Talk about cuteness overload.
