Mum uses her vibrating sex toy to help ease her baby's chest congestion

Facebook page Melons and Cuties shared a snap of a sick baby girl lying on her front as her mum holds a vibrating sex toy on her back.

Our customer shares her remedy for chest congestion!! Use on baby’s back while sitting in a steamy bathroom….

The image was captioned: "Our customer shares her remedy for chest congestion!! Use on baby’s back while sitting in a steamy bathroom. Brilliant!!!"

The post has since been shared nearly 7,000 times, and has over 16,000 comments from people who are impressed and amused by the hack.

One wrote: "HILARIOUS!!! But also a BRILLIANT representation of how motherhood requires you to be resourceful lol REAL LIFE".

A mum agreed: "Just because something has a sexual purpose some of the time does not mean that’s the only thing it’s good for. This logic also applies to people.

“Having a sick child can be hellish. Within reason I say whatever works.”

Another joked: "I remember the first time my son found my vibrator. I don’t know why I didn't think to tell him it was for chest congestion."

The method is actually not that unusual. Medics often use vibrations to help clear the airways – albeit with a less X-rated device.

Melons and Cuties added: "Thank you all for keeping the comments supportive (mostly). It’s good to see moms encouraged to use things readily available to help with wellness and not be shamed for it!"

Meanwhile, a professor claims chocolate is better than syrup for easing a cough.

Professor Alyn Morice, head of cardiovascular and respiratory studies at the University of Hull, and a founding member of the International Society for the Study of Cough, says that "chocolate can calm coughs".

And he claims that the supporting evidence is "actually as solid as a bar of Fruit and Nut".

It proves that medicine which contains cocoa is better than the standard stuff.

The study involved a head-to-head comparison of 163 patients who reported a "significant improvement" in their symptoms within two days of taking the chocolate-based medicine.
