Amy Schumer along with husband Chris Fischer are now sharing their wealth of parenting advice on YouTube, starting with a “parenting hack” the world of moms and dads needs to know of.
“We wanted to give our advice about parenting because we’ve learned so much,” Schumer began, quickly flipping the camera to Fischer, with whom she shares 9-month-old son Gene Attell.
“Our first advice/tip is a good toy for a baby around 7, 8, 9 months old — and it is exactly free,” she said. “What it is, is a box.”

Schumer then reveals her DIY playpen for her baby: an empty cardboard box with blankets on its edges and a base cushioned with an egg crate foam.
“So you get a big box, okay? You clean it out and make sure there’s no staples in it, and then you put blankets around it, and you put some toys in it,” Schumers shares. “…They can, like, hold on to the edges and stand or fall or whatever, and they really like being in their box.”
In addition, Schumer shared the news of her YouTube video-hack on her Instagram, asking her followers for feedback underneath a photo of the two happy parents playing with Gene in a park.
“We posted a parenting hack on my YouTube channel. Let me know your thoughts please! Link in bio,” she captioned the post.
Earlier in the month, Schumer talked about going through in vitro fertilization to expand her family, revealing to her followers how she and Fischer were able to get one embryo after their round of IVF.
“Hey! So IVF went like this for us,” Schumer posted under a beaming selfie. “They retrieved 35 eggs from me. Not bad for the old gal right? Then 26 fertilized! Whoah right?”

She continued, saying: “For all of those we got 1 normal embryo from that and 2 low-level mosaic (mosaic means there are some abnormal cells but can still lead to a healthy baby) So we feel lucky we got 1! But what a drop off right?”
Schumer continued on to thank fans for sharing their own IVF experiences, adding how “grateful,” they are to have her son Gene.
“Anyway I am so grateful for our son and that we have the resources to get help in this way,” she posted. “I just wanted to share and send love and strength to all of the warrior women who go through this process.”
