‘Poonami’: Mum reveals the true horror of parenting in photo of her baby’s nappy mess
A photo shared by an American mum, in which she poses with her messy baby, has resonated with parents around the world and has been shared thousands of times internationally.
New York Mum Esther Anderson (31) shared an image of herself with her daughter Ellia after her nappy had leaked all over her back and babygro.
“Second blow out of the day, and let me tell you...this one wasn't nearly as bad as this morning's,” the mum wrote in a Facebook post, which has since gone viral.
“This was that ‘Aw man I don't even know where to start to clean her’ moment,” she said.
The mum-of-two runs a parenting blog Story of This Life with her husband Thad (32).
Hundreds of mums identified with the nappy nightmare on Esther’s Facebook page, which has amassed 1.5m followers since the couple welcomed their first daughter two years ago.
“I've had this face too many times to count,” wrote mum Rachael Cochran, responding to the post.
Mum Patty Snyder commented: “I think all moms can relate and this picture made every single one laugh.”
