Mommyish Death Match: Are Dirty Diapers The Worst Mom Snack You’ve Ever Heard Of?

Welp, there’s a woman who chews on dirty diapers all day long, so all the disgusting mom stuff I’ve ever done has basically just been vindicated.

Seriously, how many of you have made a meal out of discarded macaroni and cheese bits you found on the floor? Or finished a disgusting spit-ridden ice-cream cone? Mothers do gross things sometimes. I’m not proud.

But this week, My Strange Addiction covered some territory that would chill even the most shameless mothers down to their very cores. Spit clean your child’s face? Child’s play. Stick your finger into the diaper to see if it’s dirty? Big deal! There is a woman out there who smells and chews on dirty diapers all day – the dirtier the better.

My name is Keisha, and I’m expecting my first child and I love the sniffing and chewing of dirty diapers.

Horrified. Just in case you can’t wrap your head around what that looks like, I’ll give you some images:

It has to have pee in it. It has to have pee in it.

The heavier ones that have more pee smell better.

This tastes amazing.

In the realm of all things gross that we parents experience, have you ever done something remotely this gross? What says you? I’m going with, HELL NO. The video is here if you really want to watch it.

Is This The Worst Thing You Have Ever Heard Ever Because We Think It Is

    Where is the “NOPE NOPE NOPE” octopus when you need it?

  • pixie

    Excuse me while I go puke up my lunch. *shudder*

  • CMJ
  • Eve Vawter

    I can’t even watch the video, but I am wondering WHY and HOW and why and what brings someone to the point of even considering this? :( someone hold me

    • Maria Guido

      Um, you have to watch it right now. It’s only fair. Plus, the quotes are kinda worth it.

    • Eve Vawter

      haaaate youuuuu

  • EX

    The Stephen Colbert GIF sums up how I’m feeling. Excuse me while I go scrub my brain with bleach.

  • CelesteF

    No doubt this is pica. The only question that remains is this: is this caused by nutritional deficiency or mental disorder? Without knowing anything about this case, I’m leaning towards nutritional since she is pregnant.

    • chickadee

      This show really disturbs me, since this is not normal behavior, and the pica sufferers are usually putting their health at risk (eating linoleum, couch stuffing, laundry detergent). Putting this all out as a gross-out freak show strikes me as wrong. I hope the show provides mental health professionals…..

    • Jallun-Keatres

      I’ve seen this show on youtube and part of it is them going to professionals but it’s up to them to decide if they want to stop it or not. The very end has a small update on them when editing is done.

    • Momma425

      I am SO sad for her, and her child. I severely hope she gets better, and I also feel badly that there are pictures and videos of her doing this all over the Internet. I just…just…why? Why dirty diapers? WHY?

      Hola Eve, it’s been a while.

    • Kay_Sue

      I feel a crafting session coming on….

    • Faddisphere

      Not exactly sure how to react to this.

    • Alexandra

      That is hands down the awesomest-sauce of the day. love!!

  • chickadee

    You forgot the ‘vomiting’ option.

    I was going to have some lovely Mediterranean food for lunch. Now, clearly, I will be having nothing.

    Thanks, Evebama!

    • Meg

      I know the feeling. Ever since I got pregnant I have felt like I was starving. This article has officially ruined my appetite.

    • Fuzzy Dolphin

      Did Eve write this?

    • Kay_Sue

      The editor gets the blame for everything.

    • Eve Vawter

      I like how anything bad on Mommyish – Evebama™ gets the blame

  • gillfish


  • Natasha B

    I just….I just….couldn’t she get really sick from this!????

  • Kay_Sue

    I had trouble picking an option on this poll.

    I want to go crying in my bed but I also want my mommy…That is…that is awful. That is…so gross. I feel so sorry for this woman.

    • Eve Vawter

      she is so pretty too what the hell lady put down the diaper and go to taco bell

  • Rachel Sea

    Well, there goes my appetite. I’m going to go pour out what’s left of my tea, and look up pictures of baby otters.

  • Renee J

    What did I just read?

    • Kay_Sue

      It’s been about an hour since I read it and I am still trying to figure that out myself. Let me know if you do, would ya?

  • Christie

    If she’s expecting her first child… where does she get the dirty diapers?

    • Joe the Weresloth

      She wears the dipers n dirties em herself

      either that or gets em from the old folks home

  • Janok Place

    At my first OB appointment for our first daughter the doctor asked me if I had been having any strange cravings. I said no. He said, oh good, I always check. Huh?

    My first introduction to the concept of Pica. Apparently he gets a lot of cases, and it is more common then one would think. I once got my husband to make me a grilled PB&J, does that count?

    • Amanda Rene Slinger

      Sounds tasty and I’m not even pregnant.

    • Benwhoski

      As a general rule, I’ve found that if a sandwich is already tasty, it will be even tastier grilled. Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana is one of my most favorite things ever.

      In fact, I’m going to go make one right now while I try very hard to forget the topic of this article forever.

    • Kelly

      YES! Grilled peanut butter and banana sandwiches are amazing!

  • Beth G

    The article didn’t specify….. did she do this before she became pregnant or after? And if she hasn’t had any kids yet where is she getting the dirty diapers…I’m confused.

  • More Punk Rock Than You

    This literally made me gag.

  • Alexandra

    I was eating lunch when I read this. Chili. Yup.

  • Daniela Cortez Vassallo


  • Jenna Nieves

    But are they gluten free?

  • thatmommy

    Wait a minute while I go puke….okay, I’m back. Now, WTF? Beyond the obvious helluvagross factor — this is her FIRST pregnancy? So, no baby yet? So, WHERE is she getting these diapers??? And, not that I’d ever be behind this practice but with someone else’s babies diapers??? Nevermind. I’ll be in the bathroom with my head over toilet if anyone needs me.

  • Mila

    Stephen Colbert gif= perfect representation of my response

  • FormerlyKnownAsWendy

    I feel like a year or so ago someone who had been on the show (as one of the horrified friend/witnesses) had come out and talked about how it was way exaggerated and how the show even staged it to make it look like they had more of the “food” in the house than they really did. But now I can’t find anything to prove this on the internets. Would it surprise me that TLC hires someone to get rid of stuff like that? not so much….

    • Kelly

      One of my close friends tried to get on “Pimp my ride” and they wanted her to fill her classic car with garbage to make it look like a more shocking transformation. She declined.

    • FormerlyKnownAsWendy

      Thank you! I’m really pretty sure there’s no real reality show at all….

  • Jallun-Keatres

    She can come to my house and chew on my milk-saturated breastpads. Because liquid gold!

  • Myra A Cottrill

    I can’t even. I probably have this episode on my DVR, but I draw the line. There’s no way I’m watching that hot mess.

    Oh, who am I kidding? Totally watching that.

  • gothicgaelicgirl

    My mother craved dry cornflakes and that was it lol

    How could anyone do this. Why, just why. It literally broke my brain. I think this takes the crown of “Worst thing I have seen on TLC”. Even worse than the woman who ate her dead husband’s ashes.
