Sometimes a little humor can make a difficult situation seem less frustrating, and a cute baby can definitely do the same. When you combine the two (and some savvy internet parents), you get baby's first pandemic photos. A social media trend guaranteed to put a smile on your face — even though you still can't leave the house.
While staying inside to quell the spread of coronavirus, some creative parents on social media decided to have a little fun with their babies' monthly photoshoots. The results are a bevy of precious and hilarious reminders to stay inside, wash your hands, and keep your distance from others.
Typical monthly baby photos usually include props like a stuffed animal, maybe a family pet, and a list of baby's new milestones. But a monthly baby photo during the coronavirus pandemic? Well, that calls for the inclusion of anything and everything people are now searching four and five stores to find — toilet paper, Lysol wipes, and hand sanitizer to name a few, along with a reminder that this is Baby's First Pandemic.
Captioned with hashtags like #babysfirstpandemic and #quarantinebaby, these impromptu photoshoots take creative baby photos to a whole new level. I cannot think of a better way to insist that people practice social distancing than to post one of these, and they're a reminder that one day (hopefully soon), we'll be able to look back at these photos for a #throwbackthursday.
