Breastfeeding comes with a lot of challenges. There's trying to get the baby to latch, surviving cluster feedings, and at a certain point, dealing with your baby's teeth.

For whatever reason, some babies decide to test out their new chompers by literally biting the boob that feeds them. And it hurts. A lot.

One mom decided to mark this milestone for her daughter with a cute "Baby Shark"-inspired photoshoot.

If you're a parent, then you know "Baby Shark" off by heart by now.

Not that it's a difficult song to learn since it is essentially the same four lines sung over and over again.

Kayla Seitz's nine-month-old daughter, Sophie, recently started biting her mom during feedings.

She contacted Iga Logan Photography for a fun photo series.

I am loving this idea and the cute photos, even if the inspiration behind them was a bit... painful.

Notice that the cake is shaped just like a boob? I love it! It even has red icing inside to complete the full "Baby Shark" experience.

Finally, she took a bite of it.

Here's the thing I don't get about babies: They'll eat literal dirt off the ground but as soon as you put real food in front of them, it takes them forever to eat it. What's up with that?

Now Sophie is getting into it.

I'm not going to lie, that looks like one tasty cake!

Is it appropriate for adults to do photoshoots of themselves wearing animal costumes and eating cake? I'm asking for... a friend.

Yup, this looks familiar.

If you're a parent, then you know that it doesn't take long for things to get real messy real fast when you're letting a baby feed themselves. Who had to clean up after this photoshoot?

So, so messy.

Well, she is dressed up like a shark after all. It's not like they're known for being the neatest eaters in the animal kingdom.

Congrats, Sophie!

Way to start using those new teeth of yours! But maybe, from now on, you could stop practicing your bites on your mom? I think she would appreciate it.

I think this calls for one last shout-out to "Baby Shark".

DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO.

And now it's stuck in your head for the rest of the day. Sorry about that, but it was sort of inevitable.
