A UK mum has exposed the challenges of breastfeeding too soon after a spray tan by sharing a photo of her very orange-faced baby boy.
Gemma Colley shared the image to The Unmumsy Mum Facebook page. After breastfeeding her son a few hours earlier, she noticed an alarming orange five o'clock shadow appearing on his face.

"From one mum to another, I'd like to let you know about my epic fail of fails," she wrote.
"Yesterday I had a spray tan, a few hours later I breastfed my little boy. Cue 5 o'clock shadow and a very guilty mummy."
The photo has since received over 70,000 likes and has been shared over 15,000 times - with mostly supportive comments from other mums. Some even had similar stories to tell.
One mother wrote: "I love my fake tan and my little girl regularly had a tanned ear from when she had fallen asleep on me.. But this has made my day!”
