In the video, we see Keisha sitting in front of her onesie-clad baby girl. “If you didn’t know, you will know now! This is one of my favorite mom hacks,” Keisha says to the camera with a big smile.

She then begins to explain the hack as she demonstrates. “Literally, undo the onesie, roll it up so the back goes in the back, put the arms in, then take the back of it, and literally snap it in the front!”

When Keisha has finished, her baby’s arms are tucked snugly into her rolled-up onesie, and her diaper is exposed and ready to be changed. “There ya go! You’re welcome!” says Keisha in a singsong way. She then holds her baby’s feet and smiles at her, saying, “No mess! Mess-free!”

Thanks to this simple hack, parents can now change their babies’ diapers without the fear of them reaching down and grabbing at their diaper, thus making the process much cleaner and easier — and if there’s one thing parents need, it’s more ease.

‘Save yourself. Listen to her.’

And judging by the comments, parents at home are incredibly thankful for Keisha’s hack.

“I saw this on my FYP and didn’t think it’d work. 5 mins later my daughter needed a change and I tried it… Needless to say I scrolled back to like this,” said one comment.

“I did this working at a preschool, and working as a CNA. Save yourself, listen to her,” said another.

“Just in time! I’m due in September! Thank you!” another user wrote.

“Love this! Great hack! Too bad my babies are the Hulk,” joked another user.

But for some, this brilliant hack came a little too late.

“Of course I see this a week after my son is potty trained,” said one user.

“I’m 46 years old learning this today. 3 kids! Where was this hack when I needed it?!” another user wrote.

“Why didn’t I know this 27 years ago??” cried another.

“This tip came 22 years too late. I’ll save it for the grandkids when the time comes,” one grandparent-to-be wrote.

But hopefully, even if this tip came too late for some parents, they’ll choose to pass Keisha’s hack along to first-time parents in need — because this is a game-changer!
