Taking care of a newborn can be a 24/7 job which drains you like nothing else.

Which is why Massachusetts mom of two Abigail Rivera Garcia has stumbled upon something of a hack all mothers might want to know.

Her baby has colic and reflux, resulting in her being “super cranky” and in need of extra attention.

Mom, Abigail said: “It got to the point where I couldn’t put her down for more than 10 minutes without her crying.”

With her need for assistance growing to the point of desperation, Abigail turned to the internet to find a solution to the problem. As it so often does, the web provided her with a hack that, it transpires, is perfect.

Abigail took a plastic glove, filled it up with rice and tied it tight at the bottom. What she was left with was effectively a “fake hand”.


As the mom explains: “The moment I laid her down and placed the glove on her back, she stopped crying which was such a relief!”

Yes, strange as it might seem, Anayah apparently slept like a log, all thanks to the comforting touch of a rice-filled glove.

I certainly never knew this was a thing, did you?
