Jimmy Kimmel Says Bill Murray's Parenting Advice Is 'Right On!'

As the father of six children, Bill Murray knows a thing or two about parenting. In his appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" last night, the movie legend shared some of his quick tips.

While interviewing Murray, new dad Jimmy Kimmel said that the actor previously gave him some great advice while his wife was pregnant -- he told him to bring an oscillating fan and nightlight to the hospital when his wife goes into labor because delivery rooms get very hot (especially for the sweat-soaked mom giving birth) and that the florescent lighting is unpleasant. The talk show host followed Murray's advice and found he was "right on!"

The actor's parenting advice isn't limited to delivery room tips though. During his "Jimmy Kimmel Live" appearance he also talked about tricks for getting babies to sleep, including pumping their arms and legs to tire them out and letting them suck peppermint. "Peppermint breaks up gas," he said, explaining that babies tend to scream when they first experience gas, which tends to come after they start eating solid food. "It usually happens around 6 months, when you're at the bottom of fatigue alley," Murray added.

"I don't know very much but I talk a lot about what I do know," the famous dad said.

We could listen to these two chat about parenting (or... anything) all day.
