Baby Mugging is a rather new photo meme where people hold up a coffee cup in front of their babies to make it appear as if they are sitting inside, when actually he or she is lounging in the background of the photo. All you need to pull this off is a baby (adult, animal, etc.), a cup and a camera. The birth of this photo craze can be tracked back to mother and Mommy Shorts blogger Ilana Wiles, who posted images of her kids inside of mugs. Ilana shared her images with hope of helping others smile after the heartbreaking news about the Boston Marathon bombings was released. You can view more photos online at Mommy Shorts, Know Your Meme and by searching through the #babymugging and #babeinamug tags on Instagram.
