Bedtime for babies is a tough task for any parent, but one woman got an unexpected lesson that getting babies to simply shut their eyes is not the only hard part.

A woman posted a short clip on Facebook, showing her mother attempting to lay her baby down in the crib using a step stool.

Despite slow moves and flawless footwork, within a few seconds, the surveillance video in the nursery captured the woman taking a nose dive into the crib Friday, with the baby by her side.

In a post on Facebook, Nikki Sharp Bishop wrote, "My mom is going to kill me, but I had to post. For those of you who don't know my mom, she is 5ft and has always been vertically challenged. I love this crazy woman."

The woman appears to get out of the crib unharmed, but her dive woke up the baby.

The video was posted Tuesday and has received more than 12 million views.
