WINTER is upon us, which means we’ll be facing some icey roads and slippery sidewalks.
The cold can bring hazardous conditions, so it’s important to be prepared and extra cautious when driving or simply strolling outside.

Luckily, one mother says you only need a few zip ties to solve that problem[/caption]
A woman named Autumn, who goes by @honestlyautumn online, recently posted a video that offered fellow moms and dads a tip for pushing their baby strollers on ice-covered roads.
The TikTok began by showing two parents struggling to move their child’s stroller along an icy sidewalk.
The couple was sliding down the pavement and the carriage was slipping with them.
“99% of parents don’t know about this,” she said while holding up a handful of zip ties.
In the next frame, she showed the wheel of a stroller with multiple zip ties wrapped around it.
The zip ties were spaced out by only a couple inches to ensure that the wheel was protected, and the excess portions of the ties were cut off.

These plastic ties allow the wheels to have a better grip on slippery terrain and give the stroller more traction.
Many viewers were thankful for the hack:
“First time mom to be and I live in the north. I appreciate this TikTok so much! Nothing is going to stop us,” one user wrote.
“Canadian pregnant lady here! Thank you,” added another.
Autumn has gained popularity on TikTok thanks to her videos that offer parenting advice and useful family hacks.
In another clip, she shared a parenting hack “for children who don’t want to take their medication.”
She emptied out an Honest Kids juice box, then filled it with the proper dosage of Infant’s Tylenol.
She stuck the straw back into the juice box and handed it to her baby daughter, who happily drank from the straw.
In this case, ignorance is bliss.
