Chrissy Teigen has sparked yet another furious debate with her recent Instagram post.
The 32-year-old shared a sweet photo of herself and her nearly-two-year-old daughter Luna in her lap, capturing the pair going down a slide together.
‘Weeeee are very skeptical of slides right now,’ the pregnant mum captioned the picture.
But while most looked at the picture and simply saw a loving mother-daughter moment, a handful saw imminent danger and were quick to criticize Chrissy in the comments.
‘Just a heads up that this can break your little one’s leg!’ wrote one. ‘I have three friends who have had this happen!’
‘OMG this makes me cringe after seeing a friend go down the slide like this with their baby and seeing the baby’s leg break!’ wrote another.
Some explained how a child’s food can get caught between or under parents’ legs, and the force of the parent going down the slide can cause bones to break.
However, others weren’t quite so gentle about it. Snapped one: ‘You are going to hurt the kid idiot.’
Chrissy responded to concerns about the position of Luna’s leg in the photo, pointing out that a picture captures a fraction of a second in time — and this was the moment that Chrissy was lifting Luna into her lap, not sliding down the slide.
Last year we shared how an American study found that 352,698 children under the age of six were injured on slides in the US between 2002 and 2015.
Meanwhile one mum wants metal slippery slides removed from playgrounds after her son burnt the sole of his foot. Read more HERE.
