This mom left her young one with their grandma and returned to an invention that only cost them a recycled box. The baby seemed uncomfortable in their modern and luxurious seat, so the grandmother considered introducing the 90s to the family.

She recycled an old cardboard box into a comfortable seat for the baby, who then stopped fussing as he watched cartoons on television. The box was a huge lifesaver the mother shared with her TikTok followers.

The grandma’s cardboard invention amazed many on TikTok. This inspired Briefly News to reach out to another grandma, Thandi Ngqwebo, who has seven grandchildren, on how she raised her babies back in the day. The grandma highlighted that:

“Babies have always been expensive as little humans deserve extra care. These sensitive people do not need all the glitz and glam that modern moms are so obsessed with these days.

"We used to recycle fruit boxes to train our little ones to sit up; we also used socks instead of mittens. I only spent money on baby food the most. Remember, that baby will outgrow all that designer stuff in a month or so, so spend wisely unless you have a lot of money.”

Netizens were amazed by the grandma’s invention and commented:

@Valentinemasekela bets on old school practices:

@Zee_Onceya realises that moms spend mom unnecessarily:
