A father of a newborn said he used an unusual kitchen gadget to put his baby to sleep while he did his work.
The DIY hack calmed the baby and required no effort.
A father passing by @sunburnt_dad He shared the hack on TikTok, which impressed viewers with his ingenuity.
“We found a new use for our kitchen gadget,” he said.
The Video It started with a baby in his stroller, sound asleep while the stroller was pushed forward and backward to soothe him.
As the clever father swung the floor, he revealed how he seemingly made it move on its own.
A red Kitchen Aid mixer was turned on and doing the spinning motion, but instead of filling the bowl underneath with flour and sugar, there was a string attached to it that was attached to the stroller.
Due to the rotating movement, the cord was constantly pulled back and forth so that the stroller moved with it.
In addition to movement, the Kitchen Aid also provided a sound similar to white noise, which is known to help newborns fall asleep because it mimics the sounds in the womb.
The father called it “Nap-o-Matic 1.0,” giving it a name that could easily be imagined on the baby market.
His craftsmanship was praised by other parents familiar with the problem.
“You gotta do what you gotta do,” one wrote.
“F***ing brilliant,” applauded another.
And a third wished they knew about it sooner: “I would have done it like that.”
