Parents will know the struggle to get babies to sleep, with nights filled with singing, rocking and pacing.
But moms are claiming to have found a genius way to soothe their little ones without tiring themselves out—and all you need is a toy fish.
A dancing fish, usually sold as a cat toy, is being hailed as the answer to a good night's sleep by numerous parents.
The fish has a motor inside which allows the toy to flap its tail, and moms are strapping it to their kids to provide constant pats and reassurance.
Ryann Johanningmeier shared a clip to TikTok, showing her baby with the fish gently tapping his diaper.
The 23-year-old from Florida captioned the clip: "TikTok made me do it. Put him right to sleep."
She later confirmed she uses the toy to get her baby to sleep and then removes it.
Johanningmeier added: "I did not let him sleep like that I put him on his back in his bassinet once he was asleep!"
The tip has been circulating widely on TikTok, with Good stuff -Jackson posting a similar clip to her page last month, which was watched thousands of times.
It shows a baby snoozing on their side, with the fish held in place by their trousers, also patting their diaper.
She shared another clip, this time using an oven glove to keep the fish in place, while she also added a flashing, singing and dancing sunflower as entertainment.
"Can't sleep without music," she explained.
While fellow mum also uploaded a few clips of a toddler napping—with the help of the fish.
"He had to be slapped to sleep. Is that true of your children?" she asked in the video.
She too shared a follow-up video of her little one asleep, with one fish slapping their diaper while they held another fish in their arms.
"A best gift for children," she raved.
Parents are going wild for the tip online, with Johanningmeier's video amassing countless comments.

With so many baby products on the market, sometimes the things you buy just don't work for your little one. It's admittedly tough to shell out a ton of dough for something they may refuse to use or end up hating. (I'm looking at you, $250 baby swing.) Luckily, if your baby doesn't fall for the soothing touch of a pat on the bum from a bass, We offers a 30-day money-back guarantee. So, if you (or your baby) are not totally satisfied, you can return your Sleeping Fish within 30 days of purchase for a full refund.
Worst case scenario though, you're investing in a fun toy that your kid can "catch" from a faux lake made of throw pillows and "cook" over a make-believe campfire when they're a bit older.
