This Viral Video Shows A Genius Hack For Remembering Your Baby Is In The Backseat And It Just Might Save A Life

This TikTok video has gone viral for all the right reasons.

It shows you a life hack for remembering your baby is in the backseat of the hot car, and it’s GENIUS!

Every year, we hear about parents who have gotten busy, and left their little babies in the car while they go into work.

Usually it’s in the heat of the summer, and it never turns out well for the baby.

Most of the time, the parents are good people, they just get so focused on their routine of getting to work that they forget the baby who is sleeping in the back seat.

The scary fact is that it could realistically happen to ANYONE — that includes you and me.

Just think about it for a minute.

Do you ever get so absent minded while you are driving and thinking about your day, that you all of a sudden realize you don’t have any clue how you got from point A to point B?

You don’t actually remember watching the road AT ALL while you were driving — you were just sort of running on autopilot.

It’s kind of the same idea.

Your mind gets so focused on other things, you could go about your day and forget that you ever even had the baby with you in the car.

So, Kristy Wilson, on TikTok, has come up with a very creative way to make sure you remember that you have a baby in the backseat.

When you strap the tot into the car, put one of your shoes in the backseat with the baby.


When you get to wherever you are going, you aren’t going to go in with only one shoe!

You will remember to get your shoe, and thereby remember that you have a baby in the backseat.


See, I told you!! Genius!!

Go ahead and share this with anyone who has a baby — it just might end up saving a life!

Wow, lots of judgey people in here. Personally, I think any trick to make sure this doesn’t happen is a good thing, but I guess only 100% perfect people should be able to have children right? Maybe consider that some people may have ADD/ADHD which affects object permanence, throw in a lot of job and baby stress/sleep deprivation, and accidents can happen. Maybe think before calling someone’s mom a slut and telling people to get sterilized...

Seriously people

Or don't have kids if you're not competent enough to be a parent. Freaking ridiculous

@T Snell, Your pos parents shouldn't have procreated. You're a disgrace to humanity. Your slut mom should have swallowed, the world would be a better place if you had never been born.

@A.C., if you think this is needed…please do NOT procreate. Instead immediately report to the nearest sterilization centre for another “genius” way to not forget kids in the back seat of a hot car. Sincerely, Charles Darwin
