As the classic book says, everyone poops. But not everyone has such exquisite timing as Al Ferguson's newborn son, Ted.
The adorable four-day-old was blissfully sleeping in his dad's arms during a family photo shoot last month when little Ted, completely unaware, let loose all over Ferguson's arms - and their shag carpet. (Heads up: Photos below contain said adorable baby's fecal matter. So put down your snack.)
"We had just taken the shot we wanted when I felt his tummy tense up and the explosion went off," Ferguson tells Mashable.
While it was certainly surprising to suddenly feel his own son's excrement on his bare skin, he couldn't help but laugh ... once the shock wore off, of course.
"I went through a whole host of thoughts. Firstly for the shaggy carpet, secondly my arm, thirdly sheer hysterics, fourthly what I should do with him, and lastly more laughter."
It just goes to show that those classic naked baby pictures that have graced the pages of pretty much every family album for decades come with a high amount of risk. If you want to go nappy free, sometimes you have to pay the price.
Ferguson doesn't mind, though. "I think we will blow it up big and put it on the wall in his nursery. It’s not every day you see a picture like this!"
Ferguson and his wife, Jen, live in Kent, UK, where Ferguson writes professionally. He first published the photos to his own website, The Dad Network. The Ferguson's family photos were shot by UK photographer Kristy Grant.
