Breastfeeding can sometimes be a mess—you’re sweaty, the baby’s sweaty, there’s milk and spit-up everywhere, and your baby’s hands are grabbing anything within reach (including your hair—ouch!).

Safe to say, the people of the internet loved the video too, and responded in the comments saying that they wished their kids were this thoughtful. Check out some of our favourites:
