Now THIS is a life hack!

We bet you have never thought to use a sex toy for this kind of problem…

A mother in the US has shared a hot tip (pun intended) to remedy her baby’s chest congestion.

Using a vibrator on a baby’s back while in a steamy bathroom can apparently be incredibly helpful.

The post was shared to Facebook by a Doula, Melons and Cuties.

The post reads “Our customer shares her remedy for chest congestion! Use on baby’s back while sitting in a steamy bathroom. Brilliant!”

The post has reached over 2.5 million people and has been shared over 16,500 times, with so many mums applauding the advice.


Crystal Snider, who made the original post, spoke with Kidspot about it’s success.

“I’m amazed and mortified at the same time over the reactions,” she said. “It’s not a taboo topic for us, it’s not about sexuality. It’s a mum hack.”

“There are so many who have said they didn’t know it existed. It’s peak cold and flu season here, so it’s come in very handy for lots of mums.”

“Note that many hospitals and respiratory therapists use these in the treatment of respiratory issues on the BACK in hospital settings. It is common practice. We are just sharing the information and do NOT sell this product.”
