An embarrassed mum shared her open letter to the local supermarket after experiencing a very awkward moment with her daughter and the store’s own brand of nappies.
Fran Harvey turned to Facebook to share her embarrassment over the UK chain Sainsbury’s for selling the nappies printed with ocean creatures including fish, seashells and crabs.
“Why put the animal crabs on your nappies?” the red-faced mum wrote.
“My toddler thinks it’s great you have chosen the animal crabs, and finds it great to go around saying ‘Violet got crabs’, ‘Violet got crabs in her nappy’ and also ‘Mummy gave Violet crabs in nappy’,” the mum explained.
She continued “I am now faced with embarrassment when I change my baby’s nappy especially in public changing rooms.
“My toddler thinks it’s great you have chosen the animal crabs, and finds it great to go around saying “Violet got crabs”, “Violet got crabs in her nappy” and also “Mummy gave Violet crabs in nappy”. (Direct quotes from my 2 and a half year old)
“You can only begin to imagine the funny looks I have received.
“You could have chosen any cute fluffy animal to put on your nappy, but you chose the crab. Have you thought about changing the animal for future nappies?
“Thank you for the embarrassment and I look forward to hearing a response,
An embarrassed crab hating Mum of 2.”
Fran did add, “your nappies have been brilliant, I have had no leaks and they fit my baby really well. They also are reasonably priced compared to leading brands.”
Her tongue in cheek post (yes guys, she was just having a laugh!) has attracted over 2000 reactions and hundreds of comments and shares, with some sharing their own mishaps.
Alice shared, “Asda Little angels, have cannabis leaves!”
Helen wrote, “I have the EXACT issue! Erika’s forever saying “Marla’s got crabs in her nappy mummy!” Why oh why can’t toddlers get ON & IN the right way round?!”
Amanda shared a different kind of embarrassing moment, “Well my little boy shouting out in the Asda toilets “mum why you peeing out your bum” I’m like I’m not and shouting again “yes you are I can hear it” kids lol ”
