As any mom knows, there’s nothing more stressful than driving while your little one cries in the backseat. Next time you’re behind the wheel and need to quickly soothe your fussy baby, try this trick from user Fish000. “I switch the radio to a random frequency with no station and it’s instant white noise,” she says. “I crank the volume as loud as her crying, and she settles right down.” Fish000 says she’s tried this twice, and the white noise calmed her daughter both times. On the second try, she even fell asleep!

Did this tip work for you? How do you soothe your baby while driving?
