Mum whose baby cries whenever she stops holding her uses genius fake hand to FINALLY get a break

SOOTHING a crying baby can be tricky, with parents often finding their own unique way to get the job done.

One mum whose baby cries every time she stops touching her now places a fake hand on the tot to give herself a break.

Eight-week-old Darcie-Jane Francis needs extra comfort before she will fall asleep due to a ­suspected milk allergy.

So resourceful Sophie Jones, 25, filled a plastic glove with rice to mimic the reassuring weight of her own touch.

She soothes her baby with her own hand before swapping in the glove after Darcie-Jane has dozed off – with the comforter still working every time she sleeps.

The busy mum of three, from Shaftesbury, Dorset, said: “It’s definitely a life-saver for me.

“Darcie-Jane has had problems with her formula and has been really clingy and grumpy.”

She added: "I don't know what possessed me to do it. I just really needed to clean the house and I put her down and I saw a glove and some rice, so I thought, 'let's see if this works'. Luckily it did.

“It’s like a comfort for her. I can’t believe it actually works.”
