Nappies brand Huggies has found themselves in the eye of a social media storm after a mom pointed out it looked A LOT like a toddler's legs had been Photoshopped in one of their ads.

"Is it just me or did this Huggies ad photoshop thigh gap on a toddler?” she posted on Reddit.

Commenters' opinions differed on the matter.

"Uh, yeah. That looks photoshopped," one user said. "How icky, changing a baby's body! The shaming begins that early, ugh.

"My toddler (22 months) has a 'thigh gap'." another posted. "He's small and also has incredibly thin little "chicken legs" and would probably look like this if he put his knees together."

Huggies denied that the baby had been airbrushed in the offending photo, was used in a US ad campaign for Huggies Little Movers Slip-On Diapers. The nappie manufacturers told Mail Online: “All babies are different — we look to celebrate those differences.

"We always use real-life customers and users of our products, and do not airbrush the bodies of the babies in our advertising and photography."
