MOMS can do it all – they are truly the unsung heroes.
And one mom was able to prove that when she showed how she managed to her sleeping toddler on her back without even waking her up.
Maureen Farrell, a Certified Lactation Counselor and Midwife Under Supervision, shared a video showing what life was like when she was alone at home with her toddler.
After a "rough day" trying to get her daughter to calm down and fall asleep, the host of The Milk Minute Podcast managed to do so by playing music by the singer Lizzo.
But instead of putting her down, the mom found herself needing to run errands and thought it was best to carry her on her back.
However, as she found herself alone, she struggled to tuck her into the carrier.

Ingeniously, she used a pair of kitchen tongs to tuck her child's arms into the carrier and buckle herself up.
While the mom tucked her in, never once did her daughter woke up.
"When you're home alone and need to be resourceful," Farrell wrote.
Following her video, Farrell received plenty of comments from fellow moms who praised her for her resourcefulness.

One woman wrote: "I do the same thing and to see if she is asleep, I offer food over my shoulder."
"Been there, done that!" a second one commented.
A third revealed just how she uses her tongs, saying: "I use tongs to get the laundry out of the washer because my baby hates when I bend into the washer while I’m wearing him."
"My long tongs are quite literally for this sort of purpose," another one commented.
And others simply thanked her for the idea.
