What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of dirty laundry? Stains, foul odors and flies buzzing around the hamper, right? Surely, it is nothing close to calming sensations and pleasant thoughts, unless it is an old shirt that an ex forgot at your place or you are just into that sort of thing. Hey, we’re not judging!

But it just so happens that a mother’s dirty laundry carries a scent that will send her fussy babe into nirvana. This awesome video comes to us from San Francisco, California, of a dad giving his baby his mother's dirty shirt to make him calm down. Sounds a bit disturbing but it is actually quite logical. Babies lean to known smells and scents, therefore the shirt with mother’s smell comes soothing for the baby!

The footage, shot earlier this month, shows the three-month-old boy immediately calming down as he senses his mother's smell on the shirt. Incredible! It is as if his mother’s scent puts a spell on him and he immediately starts to smile, enchanted by the magical effect!

"I was watching him one day while his mom was running errands and he got real fussy," the father wrote online. "Another dad-friend of mine suggested placing one of mom's dirty shirts from her hamper on his face, so he could recognize the smell and calm down." It worked!

"I had no idea it would work so well! I hope this video is shared enough to help other dads out of a fussy situation with their little ones," he added. What do you think of this trick! Will it come handy! If it helps sooth the baby and stop its cry, it works for us!
