Baby monitor catches boy's funny exchange with Alexa when he was unable to sleep
Most children are far more comfortable with modern technology than their parents having grown up with it as part of their daily lives.
And a mum who checked her son's baby monitor was left in stitches when she saw him turn to Alexa for help after waking up during the night.
The camera in his room caught the brilliant exchange between the pair and the mum uploaded it to TikTok, where it racked up more than 3.6 million views as it melted the hearts of people in the comments.
The mum explained that she puts Alexa in her son's room to play lullabies as he falls asleep, but one night her son had woken up and asked: "Alexa, I need daddy."
The Amazon virtual assistant responds to ask: "What should I add?" before the little boy reiterates "daddy" - at which point Alexa hilariously replies to say: "I've added daddy to your shopping list, is there anything else?"
The boy seems disappointed as he replies: "Urm... no" as the mum can be heard giggling at their sweet exchange.
