Bored Panda has compiled a list of these fails, nothing serious but definitely relatable and all of them will give you those slightly guilty kind of giggles. Scroll down below to check them out and don't forget to vote for your favourite!

Do not use chemicals such as tan spray near babies! Many will even get rashes from detergent perfumes etc. People really require more education on how harmful many every day substances are. Interestingly, while things we care for ("dirt") typically are totally harmless to babies.
