Resourceful dads are sharing the weird and wonderful parenting hacks they use to make their lives that little bit easier.

Being a parent can be a tough task — but a variety of tricks compiled by The Sun prove there are ways to make the battles of childcare a little less stressful.

While many methods are well-known and practical, others are more controversial, and it seems that parents have developed some rather creative solutions to make family life run smoother.

From a father who used a bunch of bananas to prop his baby’s milk bottle to her face, to one who kept his son in place with a tank top — here are some of the funniest methods dads have used while caring for their kids.
