Adorable: Binky Felstead learned a valuable mummy lesson the hard way

Binky Felstead recently took to Instagram to share a very real motherhood moment.

When the mum left the room, her daughter India went looking for the nearest thing to play with.

And it wasn’t a toy.


How you doin’ ?

At just five-and-a-half-months old, little India is in the full fledged ‘grabby’ stage.

Unfortunately, the girl managed to open a tube of Sudocreme and rubbed it all over her face.

Binky shared a photo of the aftermath where her poor daughter is crying with a painted white face, frustrated with the sticky creme’s endurance.

“I think this situation is relatable, a right of passage for a lot of us mummies,” the Made in Chelsea star said.

“Learnt another valuable mummy lesson today - never leave Sudocreme by the babies bed! #firstfacial

“And yes, she’s totally FINE, mummy!”

Many mums have commented on the photo with light-hearted remarks, reassuring Binky that it happens to most parents.

“This is tooo adorable,” said one comment. “I remember when my son did this. [It] was a nightmare to wash off haha”.

“Aww bless her,” said another. “My daughter did this as a baby and now my granddaughter this the same a couple of weeks ago. I think all mums go through this.”

Poor India! Sometimes our little ones have to learn the hard way.

We recommend using a damp cloth or baby wipes to get off Sudocreme.

Have you ever had this happen to you? What did you use to remove the excess nappy creme?
