A mom in the UK has discovered a genius trick with wet wipes while changing her baby’s nappy, and parents are saying it’s a “game-changer”!
According to an article on Hull Live, 29-year old Lauren Martin was driven to share her revelation with parents after realising how to pull just one baby wipe from the packet instead of a whole bunch.
As all parents will know, this is a common occurrence, which can be frustrating, especially when you’re in the middle of tussling with a wriggling baby during a nappy change.
Lauren had accidentally ripped the thin plastic on the packaging while she was busy changing her baby, and to her amazement, was able to pull just one baby wipe out the hole. She shared her tip on the Facebook group The Motherload.
Lauren wrote: “My son is 19 months and I’m ONLY just ‘discovering’ that if you fully rip open wipes, they’ll come out one by one and not a whole bunch that string out while I’m trying to change a dirty nappy and undo a wipe with my double chins.
“This may or may not be known and I’m a tit… but I felt I had to share.”
The post has subsequently gone viral with many parents saying they didn’t have a clue, with parents calling it a “game-changer” and saying they have been left “mind-blown”.
