A sleep-deprived mum got revenge on her fiancé who snoozed through their newborn baby’s night feed by gluing his finger to his NIPPLE – leaving him stuck like that for more than two hours.
Mum-of-five Kylie Cain was infuriated that Craig Richardson slept through the night and didn’t get up to help with little Stevie Cain’s feed and nappy change in the early hours of Saturday morning (April 7).
As Kylie lay awake listening to the six week old settle down in her cot she decided to take vengeance on her snoozing plumber partner and prank him by gluing on a false nail.
The 29-year-old mischievous mum then decided to go one step further by smothering his newly manicured left index finger with nail glue and pressing it against his right nipple as he slept, snuggling into him to hold it in place while it dried.
The following morning a cackling Kylie filmed the moment she woke 32-year-old Craig up in the hope the prank would tweak his sleeping habits and encourage him to get up in the night.
Kylie from Wigan, Greater Manchester, said: “I’ve just carried his child for nine months, it’s a bit of payback.
“I was up in the night with the baby getting her fed and nappy changed before putting her back down.
“Craig was just lying there snoring his head off happy as Larry.
“After I put her back in her cot I was lying there wide awake and a bit bored.
“I spotted the glue and the fake nails on my bedside table so I decided to stick one onto him – I thought it was a good idea.
“I leaned over with the glue and the nail and then stuck it on. He didn’t move at all as he’s a very heavy sleeper.
“I was just giggling to myself and enjoying a little belly chuckle.
“Things soon escalated when I put glue on his finger. I then put my hand over him to pretend to cuddle him and stuck his finger to his nipple.”
Kylie woke Craig up at 8am on Saturday morning and decided to film his reaction, first by screaming and then by claiming Stevie needed feeding.
The video shows a groggy Craig mumbling to Kylie as she tries to rouse him. Realising he can’t move his left hand he looks down and notices his sticky predicament.
As he comes to, a livid Craig blurts out some expletives when he realises what’s happened.
Kylie said: “When he woke up he wasn’t suspicious at all. At first I screamed trying to scare him awake but he didn’t even move.
“I then told him that Stevie needed feeding and he eventually woke up. He looked down and then looked back up and you can see he’s thinking ‘help, I’m stuck’. I asked him to move his hand and he couldn’t.
“He was stuck like that for two hours. He just sat on the bed because he couldn’t budge it, it was stuck to his hairs and his nipple.
“I couldn’t stop laughing. Every time I left the room to see to one of the kids and then walked back in again I just started laughing.”
Due to the delicate area his finger was stuck to neither Craig nor Kylie could rip it off and they were forced to use an acetone-based nail polish remover to soak the glue off.
Kylie said: “I went to the shop to get some acetone. We were trying to dribble it down onto his nipple and wipe the glue off with cotton wool balls.
“It took 45mins to get it off with acetone which he said was burning him.
“It was decent nail glue and wasn’t cheap so I expected it to stick but I didn’t think it would stick as much as it did. He did see the funny part of it eventually.
“It’s definitely worked and means he gets up more at night with her.
“In fairness in the day he helps with her but at night he was just that shattered he didn’t get up.
“After this he won’t go back to sleep before he’s made sure I’m asleep first. I’m a bit worried about what payback he’s planning.”
Craig said: “When I woke up I remember thinking ‘what’s hurting me?’. I tried to move my hand down so I could scratch my chest and it was then I clocked on.
“At first I thought something was caught on me but then Kylie started laughing her head off like she had been up to something.
“I was stuck like that for two hours as it wouldn’t budge. We had to use nail varnish remover at the finish to get the stuff off but it didn’t half sting.
“I took it all in good humour, it was only a laugh, and it’s not the first time she’s pranked me.
“That acetone made my nipple cold and feel like it was burning. They say giving birth hurts but this was the next level up in pain.
“Half of my chest hair came off – I’m still shaving my finger.
“I’ll definitely be getting her back one day, just not yet.”
