Desperate Dad Puts Baby In Remote Control Truck To Sleep (Video)

A dad's ingenious way of getting his baby to sleep has become a worldwide hit on YouTube. Could it work for you?

In the clip, the dad is left home alone with the tiny infant and realises he's going to have any peace.

So just as parents throughout the decades have found the only solution to getting a newborn to sleep is to rock them gently, or take them for a stroll in their pram, or a drive in the car, this dad came up with a more effortless and home-bound answer.

By placing his baby in the trailer of a remote control truck, he drove the baby backwards and forwards around the house.

And his plan clearly worked if the video of the fast-asleep child is anything to go by.

The two minute clip was uploaded to YouTube by Marnoods - and has been viewed more than 1.1 million times.
