A TikTok mom posted a video of her putting her baby to sleep in a minute by massaging the inside of her bundle of joy's ears.

This unheard-of technique had a lot of tongues wagging on social media, with users giving their two cents as to why it's effective.

"What the heck. I wish I would have known this 18 years ago."

@ooola_wan asked:

"Does this work on toddlers because I'm tired?"

@mrswilliams4ever added:

"Imma try this on my 25 year old daughter when she comes in here bothering me."

@tsf970 commented:

"Thinking about it I wonder if it's because it sounds like when a baby is in utero! Worked on my 1 year grandson."

"Yeah, I just tried this on myself. It sounds like what I's imagine in utero sounds like."
