The youngster in question is Reddit user sho3's unnamed nephew, and his uncle couldn't resist sharing the hilarious snap to the site, explaining that: 'As a single guy, this reminded me of what it's like to hold someone's baby'.

It's a sentiment shared by many, it seems, as fellow Reddit users came out of the woodwork to admit that this kid's expression was pretty much identical to their own whenever they were in the vicinity of a newborn.

User Pingy34 confessed that 'nothing scares me more than holding a newborn', while another pleaded with new parents: "Please, if you love your babies, don't give them to incompetent me."

We've got to admit, picking up a newborn baby for the first time can be a pretty nerve-racking experience, especially if they're not your own. What will you say to the parents if you break her?
