A pregnant mom-to-be in California is facing ridicule after posting a video on Instagram that appeared to show her baby’s penis, which she claims is too big for the diaper she’s wearing.
The clip, which was uploaded on Tuesday, shows the mother of two and her boyfriend taking turns peeing on the diaper of their newborn daughter.
The two then sit in the bathroom, holding the baby, who has no pants on.
“She’s a little bit embarrassed because she doesn’t have a diaper,” the mom, who goes by the name of Anna, told The Huffington Post on Wednesday.
“She’s been wearing a diaper for a week and she’s already peeing in it, but she just can’t stop because she has a baby.”
The video, which went viral, has since been deleted.
The mom told HuffPost that she didn’t want her video to get lost in the uproar, and has since deleted the offending Instagram post.
“I just have the diaper on,” she said.
“And I’m going to take it off when I get home.
I want to show people, especially people who are new parents, that I care about my baby.”
When Anna’s boyfriend comes over to check on her, she asks him to take the diaper off.
“I don’t want it to get on my face or in my eyes,” she says, prompting him to remove it.
She then shows her boyfriend her baby with the diaper hanging out of the diaper’s opening, which he says is too large for the baby.
“He takes off the diaper, and he just goes, ‘That’s too big,'” she said, adding that the boyfriend had to remove the diaper.
“Then he said, ‘I’ll just put my hands in it.'”
Anna said she also asked him to wipe off the dirty diaper with a cloth and to remove his hands from the diaper before she went back in.
“But then he just takes it off,” she explained.
“It’s so embarrassing,” she added.
“It’s just gross.”
The baby was born on March 14, the day after the mom and boyfriend were caught in a controversy over diaper size.
A petition on Change.org calling for the mom to be fired was launched on March 16, with more than 11,000 signatures as of Wednesday morning.
The video prompted many people to call out the mom’s parenting style, calling her out for the infant’s size and her decision to cover up the diaper with her hand.
“We have a big family, and you have to be responsible and treat your baby well,” Anna said.
The Huffington Post reached out to Anna for comment, but did not immediately receive a response.
