We Tested 9 Mom Hacks So You Wouldn't Have To

You're a new mom. Life is chaos. Raised Real is here to help.

There are more internet parenting hacks than there are stars in the sky, and it can be impossible to tell the lifesavers from the time-wasters. BuzzFeed asked LA-based comedians Betsy Stover and Ari Voukydis to test a handful of popular hacks on their three sons (ages 6, 5, and 1).

1. HACK: Place tape over the speaker on loud toys to cut down the noise.

2. HACK: Place a command hook on the back of a high chair so you won't have to run around in a panic looking for bibs.

3. HACK: Stash wipes and a few extra diapers in the back of your car so you can always change your baby in a pinch.

4. HACK: Trace your tiny human's feet before going shoe shopping to save time and sanity at the shoe store.

5. HACK: Keep track of your kids' dosages by making a chart on the side of the medicine bottle.

6. HACK: Steal air-sickness bags from airplanes and stash them in your glove compartment for those inevitable carsick catastrophes.

7. HACK: Give apple slices a quick salt rinse, and they won't turn all brown and nasty.

8. HACK: Save time and treat your family to a fun breakfast by making "overnight oats" in the fridge before you go to bed.

9. HACK: Use gelatin to make magic, non-melting popsicles.
