But here’s a fun hack that has been shared on social media sites. No one would ever think that a toy originally made for a cat can do the trick. Yes, it’s a battery-operated fish toy that slaps up and down and it looks effective in doing the job!

A TikTok video shared by Yezzha Nhor Moral on Facebook has this example. The toy fish is seen inserted on a gap at the back of the baby’s outfit and its flopping motion mimics a parent’s hand patting a baby’s bottom. There goes the little one sleeping peacefully; saving you time and energy. You can probably leave it there until the battery runs out.

“Hahaahha.. Nakapahinga nang konti ‘yung nanay. Paggising ni baby saka n’ya paksiw yung isda,” said Yezzha Nhor Moral.

Others would want to give it a try but for some, this is only for the lazy ones.
