Video of Dad Tricking Baby Into Breastfeeding

This Dad Tricked His Infant Into "Breastfeeding," and I'm Speechless For the First Time in My Life

Her mama gone and she wouldn't take the bottle, so I had to trick her!!! 😂😂😂

Posted by Allen Lamarr Fails Jr. on Thursday, March 14, 2019

Allen Lamarr Fails Jr., a dad from Mississippi, would do whatever it took to ensure his daughter, Ava, was fed while his wife was out of the house for the day. So when little Ava — who's normally breastfed — refused to take her bottle, Allen got creative. His solution? By cutting holes in his shirt and putting the bottle's nipple through it. And believe it or not, the hack actually f*cking worked.

After filming his endeavor and sharing it on Facebook, the post instantly went viral, racking up more than 15 million views. "My daughter is famous, and she's not even two weeks old," Allen told Good Morning America. "My wife left the house, and the baby got hungry. [She] wouldn't take the bottle, and I didn't know what to do."

Although Allen's hack is certainly out of the box, his wife, Alexis, certainly appreciated the effort. "She was like, 'Allen, your video has [so many] views.' She was laughing about it," said Allen. "I [recorded] it to show people there's more than one way to do something . . . whenever you care about somebody, you'll do anything to make it work, even when you don't have the resources."
