If you're a mom, then you'll take all the help you can get, am I right? And, I don't mean help in the form of passive-aggressive Instagram comments. I'm talking about tried and true parenting hacks that will actually get moms through another day.

For any moms out there who are frustrated with their pump sessions, this genius hack could be your answer. Grab your pump, a baby sock and read on for this helpful tip.

There are many reasons why women have to pump breast milk.

It's a popular option for moms who have returned to work but still wish to breastfeed their babies.

For women who have babies who were born premature, they may need to pump breastmilk until their child is strong enough to latch.

Whatever the reason, most moms agree that pumping milk is the worst.

It's awkward, it's uncomfortable, and it can also be really stressful, especially when it seems that the milk is just not flowing.

Milk and Motherhood, a Facebook page about breastfeeding topics, shared this genius hack for moms who are worried about how much they've pumped.

All you need is a baby sock! Simply cover the bottle with the sock and start pumping.

Since you can't see how much you've pumped, you're less likely to stress out. When you're relaxed, you'll likely get more milk in a pump session.

"Some women are reporting often 2-3 times more milk when they remove themselves mentally from the result of their pumping session!" Milk and Motherhood said in their Facebook post.

This post has gone viral, and been seen and shared thousands of times.
