When you’ve got kids, it can be pretty tricky to find time to be alone with your partner.
If you’re not busy doing the school run or working, then it’s likely a little person is yelling ‘Muuuuuum’ at you every few minutes.
Because of this, plenty of parents then find themselves waiting until the dead of night to get intimate, when the kids have gone to bed and there’s finally a bit of peace.
However, if you’ve got a noisy headboard, you risk waking up the children and ruining the moment.
But it seems one woman has come up with a solution to this awkward bedroom problem – and it won’t break the bank.
Writing on the Facebook group, Kmart Hacks & Decor, the mum revealed she uses a £2 item to prevent her headboard from banging against the wall while having sex.
It turns out all you need is a pool noodle.
All the clever woman did was cut the swimming aid into pieces to fit around the top of her wooden headboard.
She confessed she came up with the idea after the teenagers in her house complained that they’d heard “noises in the night”.
Fellow Facebook users thought her cheap trick was genius, with one person branding it the “best hack ever”.
Another replied: “Ugh, my bed is noisy when I jump on it too! Great hack.”
A third joked that they would “never look at anyone carrying a pool noodle the same (way) again”.
Not everyone was quite so impressed by the idea though and some others pointed out that there was actually an even simpler solution to the problem, that didn’t involve spending any money whatsoever.
Someone else suggested: “Why not just move the bed away from the wall? Sheesh.”
A second agreed, adding: “My bed’s got a space between bed head and wall for this reason.”
