Internet sensations come and go, but every once in awhile, an Internet concept sticks and goes completely viral (like the ever popular “planking” that had everyone snapping photos of themselves lying face down like a board).

The newest viral Internet sensation is one the whole family can have fun with, as it has taken storm in the households of mommies and daddies.

It requires a camera, a baby, and a coffee mug.

The fad has been dubbed “baby mugging” and involves creating the illusion that the baby is inside the coffee mug.

The fad was started by mommy blogger, Ilana Wiles, who snapped a photo of her 5-month-old baby, Harlow, while she was lying on her back. She held one of her coffee mugs up to her daughter, took the photo, then posted it on her Instagram account.

From there, it became a hit as other mommies and daddies started doing their own renditions and hashtagging the photos #babyinamug.

It has since led to some adorable photos!

Are you going to participate in this newest Internet sensation?
