Scared neighbors almost call cops on mom circling block to put baby to sleep

Every parent understands the struggle of trying to get their kids to go to sleep. And a cruise, or several, around the block, can be just what’s needed for your little one to catch some ZZZs. This parenting hack is precisely what TikTok user and New Zealand mom Karina Missen (@karina.missen) did to maintain those blissful moments of quiet when her 2-month-old fell asleep in the car. While this parenting hack is nothing new, Missen’s neighbors found the vehicle’s presence unsettling. One concerned resident took to the neighborhood Facebook group and asked, "This car has been circling on Capper Crescent 7 times in the past 10 mins... should I call the police”. Another neighbor responded, suggesting to “take your phone and show the people in the car driving past that you are recording them”. Missen took the group chat to TikTok with the caption, “When you’re trying to get your baby to sleep, and your local community group is worried you’re scoping the place out”. Viewers took to the comments to share their amusement as well as similar stories. “I’m sorry this made me giggle lol. But yes, I feel you. I do the same thing with my daughter. I drive on the motorway”
