Rose Bennett, a 21-year-old mom from Pembroke Pines, Florida, has a problem on her hands, albeit a good one.

Last week, she visited a local Walmart to buy a pack of size 4 Pampers for her 16-month-old son, Ben. The store was out of his size, so she purchased a 5 instead.

On Friday when she went to change him, the toddler pointed at the baby on the diaper bag and said “Ben,” with loving recognition.

Bennett said she’s tried hard to convince her son that he’s not the baby on the package, but he’s not having it. He even cuddles with it from time to time, she told BuzzFeed.

“He looks just like Ben,” Bennett said in an interview with BuzzFeed. “It shows representation really matters. He doesn’t have that reaction to any other brand, any other toys, anything else.”

After tweeting out the photo of her baby clutching the diaper bag, Bennett’s tweet has been re-posted over 12,000 times.

Bennett says she plans to continue buying Ben his beloved diapers.
