This dad has come up with a clever way to feed his baby son while his mother is away – by attaching a picture of her face to his. 

The dad – from Capim Grosso, Bahia in Brazil – manages to successfully feed his three-month-old son, Vinicius, who is fooled into drinking the milk.

He tapes an image of Vinicius’ mother to his head and straps a contraption around his chest that contains milk.

He is wearing a upside down bra with the bottle tucked into the underneath of it.

At first the baby seems unsure as he stares up at his dad but he manages to coax him nearer until he takes the nozzle in his mouth. 

It’s plain sailing from there as the three-month-old continues his feed without any problems. 

At one point a young girl comes over to the dad and son and smiles when she sees that the baby is feeding.  

The dad said: ‘He didn’t want to eat so I had to improvise.’
