Mum uses Nerf Gun to keep husband awake while she recovered from giving birth

A mum came up with a genius way to keep her husband awake after she gave birth.

Samantha Mravik-Miller took a Nerf gun into the delivery room – and fired the toy at her partner every time he looked to be dozing off.

She came up with the genius idea after Chad Miller struggled to stay awake the first time she went to labour.

The US parent, from Wisconsin, admitted she had to prepare in advance as her hubbie could snooze through “an atomic bomb”.

Samantha, who headed to hospital to get a C-section, grabbed the Nerf gun on her way out of the house.

She then posted an amusing snap of herself to Facebook, where she outlined the handy hack.

Samantha wrote: “Mum hack level 1,000.

“Worried about the nights in the hospital with your newborn and dad sleeping?

“Well… then don’t forget one of these in your hospital bag.”

The post went down a treat, racking up 2,700 likes on Facebook.

Thousands of people also took the time to leave a comment – and many branded the idea “brilliant”.

And a third added: “I definitely should have done this."
