Many mums are only just discovering a hidden feature on nappies that helps to prevent blowouts.
A heroic mum-of-three shared a video on TikTok demonstrating the handy hack and it went viral. Watch here:
In the clip - captioned 'every mom should know about this' - the woman showed that there are two extra flaps that you might not be aware of.
The video has been viewed more than 700,000 times and clearly a lot of people wished they had known about the bonus flaps sooner.
"Wow after 3 kids I didn't know about this lol. Sooo would've been good to know sooner," one parent commented.
Another wrote: "Why do I learn this now after I just finished potty training."
While a third added: "Well this would have helped 21 years ago."
There were also plenty of dads pointing out that the hack could help them avoid 'poonamis' too.
One father kindly shared: "What about all the fathers? We get s****ed on the most. My daughter projectile exploded on my shorts the other day."
TikTok is rife with parenting hacks, some more obscure than others. One mum recently went viral after revealing that she keeps her kid on a leash when out and about in public.
In a clip posted to video-sharing app, the mum can be seen attaching the lead to her wrist before taking her child's hand and attaching it to their wrist too.
She then gets on with her shopping while essentially handcuffed to her kid.
Captioning the video, she wrote: "I'm tired of the world being this way but I'm NEVER tired of protecting my girls.
"I'm okay looking like a crazy mom. As long as my babies are safe."
It might be an unusual sight, but lots of parents flocked to the comments to praise the woman, with others making it clear they'd be picking up a lead for their kids too.
One person commented: "Moms get shamed for everything they do, no matter what. Do what you need to do to keep your kids safe in this crazy world."
Another said: "Idc what anyone says I'm doing this. Call me crazy but I will always be a protective mom first."
While a third added: "Idk why the hell ppl shame moms who do this. They'd be shaming moms if they didn't keep their kids safe too... so!"
And another user wrote: "That is so smart! We used these when teaching my brother in law road safety and walking on the pavement safely."
