Move over teens, it’s time for moms to shine on TikTok. Yes, moms are taking to TikTok to join in on a viral challenge of their own by exposing their breasts to their babies and recording their breast-fed babies’ excited reactions. Officially dubbed the “Drop Em Out” challenge, moms record their actions while Wheeler Walker Jr.’s song, “Drop ‘Em Out” plays in the background.
The trend really started taking off back in May 2020 close to Mother’s Day — because nothing says “I love you” more than a mom flashing her baby. But just this week the videos popped up again (like, you know, breasts) proving that there has never been better timing for moms to go viral.
The lyrics to the song fit perfectly: “Drop ’em out, let me see them ti–ies…gonna take a long look at those tig ol’ bitties.” And that’s just what babies are doing.
Here’s a compilation from YouTube to give you a quick idea of what it’s all about.
TikTok @housemama user captioned her video with some humor, writing, “She had the same reaction my husband did.” Her baby sits on her belly watching and once her mom unzips her bra, the baby dives forward.
Another baby nearly flips over in his attempt to get to his mom:
The challenge seems to be the mom version of the “Naked Challenge,” which involves TikTok users surprising their significant others by walking in naked and recording their reaction — another recent viral trend. In fact, after the “Drop Em Out” trend rose to fame last year, a lot of young adults got in on the action, with the girls showing off for their surprised guys and catching it on video.
Sadly, not all the reactions to the cute babies are positive. Some users took to the comments to criticize the moms for their actions. On one video, someone sarcastically commented, “Wow. Great parenting.”
Me Aww reports on several commenters slamming moms for the challenge, who are calling for moms to “have some self respect” or calling moms “creepy” for recording their kids.
However, most are happy to see happy babies on their feeds over typical TikTok viral challenges that involving peeing your pants or ingesting nutmeg.
