Earlier this month, the mum revealed her simple method which makes putting suncream on her one-year-old son Braxton a total breeze.
In a video that’s racked up over 2.9m “likes”, Lauren explained how she uses a makeup brush to work SPF into those hard-to-reach spots.
She wrote in the caption: “A makeup brush is the easiest way to apply sunscreen into all those small areas like their ears/nose.”
What’s more, Lauren also demonstrated how she pops baking soda in her son’s nappy bin to deodorise the smell.
The mum explained: “I learned baby hacks from browsing on Pinterest and through trial and error in being a mom.
“Although I have worked with children for a very long time, I felt that being a mom was an entirely different experience that I had to learn to navigate.
“I thought that if they were helpful to me, it would be great to be able to share with other parents as well!
“It is always so motivating to continue to make content when I see other moms using my hacks.”
