- Vlogger shared how his daughter Charlie falls when her eyebrows are rubbed
- He impressed his fans with over 30,000 viewers reposting the parenting tip
A vlogger who is known for creating funny videos has gone viral on social media after sharing a parenting tip that puts babies to sleep in under a minute.
Austin Miles Geter who lives in Texas, explained in a video posted on Facebook how he is able to get his four-month-old daughter Charlie to sleep with a tip that has been popular with previous generations.
‘I heard that if you gently rub their eyebrows, they will go to sleep,’ he said, as he sat in a rocking chair and prepared to try the hack.
The trick is believed to work because stroking around the eyebrows will encourage a baby to reflexively close their eyes, and the gesture also relaxes them.
