New parents have an awful lot to learn – including how to master putting a nappy on their adorable, wriggling little bundle of joy.

And judging by the picture above, she’s pretty much nailed it.

The image was shared on Reddit via Imgur by user byondthewall earlier today, with the caption: “So my coworker has been practicing [sic] putting on diapers…”

It has since gone viral , amassing more than 500,000 views.

Another user, supersadomasochisticcannibalferocious, joked: “Never before have I seen eyes that so clearly spell ‘M-U-R-D-E-R’.”
