Sometimes you can't fight instinct. Photographs of a mother and her child have gone viral on Reddit after the hungry baby decided to try breastfeeding on a statue.

In the photos, you see the baby eyeing the sculpture before lunging in to get a meal. I love how the baby is looking up at the statue with an expectant face while the mother just laughs. I can only imagine the surprise he must have felt!
