As much as you may want to spend every second of the day with your extremely loving (or, well, extremely clingy) baby, sometimes you’ve just gotta do other things. Well, there’s a clever way to do just that without having to listen to your little one’s heartbreaking wail — a mom shared a genius trick to get her baby to let her leave the room, and we’re sure that fellow members of Chile’s online community Maternidarks will be eternally grateful.

What’s a busy mom to do? She leaves her “legs” by the baby’s side and then heads to the kitchen to cook — and we promise it’s not as creepy as it initially sounds.

The mother fills a pair of jeans with stuffed animals, puts some boots at the bottom, and leaves a gap between her fake feet because the baby sometimes likes to sneak through her legs.


What a clever hack! Sure, he’s bound to catch on eventually — but the 1,600 Facebook users who’ve already shared the post will definitely benefit from this tactic. This mom is #goals.
