Mom Shares Brilliant Hack for Bathing Your Baby Safely Using Unexpected Item

Bathing your baby is a joyous experience, a great opportunity to bond with your little one and watch them enjoy the sensation of warm water on their soft skin.

However, the ritual can often breed anxiety in many parents, as they want to make it as safe and comfortable as possible for their child.

Some elect to buy bath seats or smaller tubs for their offspring, but these can be expensive, especially considering they are soon to grow out of them.

However, there is an easier and more affordable way. One mother on TikTok has shared her hack for bathing a baby safely, and it is such a genius idea.

Kayla Ellis, who is known on the video-sharing app as @theellisisland17, posted her method for giving her youngster a bath on January 1, along with the caption: "Trust me! It's a life saver!!

But, what does the technique entail?

Well, Ellis' video begins with her filming a laundry basket in a bath with a towel inside it.

She then goes about explaining to viewers why this is a useful method.

The mother begins by revealing the towel "will help to keep them warm," and "any accidents can be easily cleaned."

She also cites the fact that "their toys won't float away," and the small child "can sit up, kick and splash."

Finally, showing her infant son sat in the bath smiling sweetly, she says: "They love it and they look so darn cute."

Using a laundry basket is also preferable for a specifically-made baby bath because it can easily be reused once your child grows up.

The clever method has since been viewed 3.9 million times, and received more than 437,200 likes.

Many rushed to the comments section to share their appreciation of the hack.

One TikTok user, Theresa, wrote: "*adds to favorites* even though I'm 19 with no kids."

Another person, known only as TGW, added: "I used to do this with my son them little blow up baths are expensive and this works just as well."

Amber added: "This is genius!! We are currently trying to conceive so will buy another clothes basket for baths."

Sophie typed: "Just adding to favorites for later."

An account holder called T exclaimed: "That's actually such a good idea."

Annaa commented: "Why I didn't see your video a few weeks earlier now I've already bought a bath seat... but this thing is more cuteeee."

Some asked Ellis why she did not bathe her baby in the sink, and she responded by explaining that he was now "too big."

TikTok is crammed full of many other brilliant hacks and tips.

Recently, a woman shared her method for ensure you select a ripe avocado at the grocery store every time.

Shannon Doherty, known online as @athomewithshannon, shared the little-known method on May 2, and we are so impressed.

She asks followers: "Did you know there is a trick for when an avocado is perfect?"

The TikTok creator then holds up the fruit before explaining that all one has to do "pick off the little stem..." explaining that if "it's green it is perfectly ripe."

She then clarified that if it's "brown... it's not ready!"
