Not it isn't, because the actual sentence is:

"Dad's feeding their babies".

We don't say:

"Dad is feeding their babies" (except in the cotext of a single dad a multiple babies, which this clearly isn't).

Or even:

"Dads is feeding their babies".

So the only valid contraction would be:

"Dads're feeding their babies"

It doesn't say that, so it's just plain wrong.
