By using this $12 product, mum Brooke McDaniel has completely changed how she stores (and maintains) her baby bottle collection. Now, she's sharing her clever and simple idea with mum all over the world.
Brooke took to Facebook a few days ago, to reveal her storage hack for keeping two children's bottles organised: a $12 shower caddy.
"Ive posted about this in my mommy group but figured i should share with all new moms on my page, save your kitchen. It's a $12 shower caddy. Best "bottle holder" I could ever have. All my bottles in one place on my wall, space I wasn't utilizing, instead of having a cabinet with bottles overflowing from it," she wrote.
Since sharing her tip, the post has gone viral amassing over 45,000 likes and over 120,000 shares.
Brooke edited her advice to explain her reasoning, and shut down criticism for the friendly motherly advice she was simply offering:
"I never expected this post to get shared so much, I'm not a social media blogging mom, just a normal person with a good idea. This post was only ever intended for my friends, I'm glad others are finding it helpful but I never expected it to get any type of negative reaction so I'd like to address those now questioning my mothering methods, to those of you who say -
"That's too many bottles: I have two children on bottles and not enough time to wash them 6 times a day. This amount ensures my children will have enough to get through 24 hours with ease and besides I'm the type of mother who would rather have too much of something my children need than not enough 👍
"Exposed nipples: this is my home, those nipple don't come in contact with anything but the air we breathe. So if you feel you can't used a exposed nipples in your own home you should really be more concerned with your cleaning habits.. I'd be more worried about the dirt on the floor they scoot their face across than some germs, in the air they breathe in their mouths, possibly getting on a bottle they put in the same place. 👌
"And to each one of y'all reading this, if no one told you today- YOU ARE A AWESOME MOM! 😘"
We think you're awesome too, Brooke!
