Gordon Ramsay has copped some criticism this week after sharing a sweet image of himself and baby Oscar.

The 52-year-old, who welcomed his fifth child with wife, Tana Ramsay in April, has faced backlash on Instagram, after posting a snap with his adorable two-month-old son, Oscar.

“Walk in the Park with my new best mate,” Gordon captioned the photo, showing him holding Oscar in a baby carrier.

Fans soon warned the celebrity chef about the way Oscar was sitting in the sling.

“That support is not ergonomic and the child’s forehead position is not recommended. I advise you to change support for a more pleasant babywearing experience for both,” one commenter said.

“That harness is way to low and he should be facing towards you not away from you,” another person said.

“Please, Godron daddy read about ergonomic supports.”

“How lovely you wrap your baby, but Babybjorn is not good for the baby. First of all you’ll need to have his forehead right so you can kiss it without bending over. The baby is way to small to sit front out … just a friendly advice. may I suggest @ergobaby or another brand there’s is recommended..”

Another commenter recommended Gordon look up the TICKS rules for safe baby wearing, which details how the baby can be kept safe in carriers and slings. “Please take a look at TICKS rules for babywearing, to keep you and Oscar safe!”

Gordon and Tana are already long time parents to 20-year-old Megan, 19-year-old twins Holly and Jack, and 17-year-old Matilda.

  • for once it seems like these comments are trying to be helpful – not shaming. i also thought that you shouldn’t put a baby that young in a pouch facing outwards.


  • It’s helpful advice, not shaming. He probably won’t read the comments but if it helps just one other person learn how to babywear safely then it’s worth it.


  • I just like seeing the softer side of this man and his bub is adorable.


  • What I noticed in one photo is that the baby’s head is exposed to the sun. Always a risk of sunburn for such delicate skin. Initially I didn’t even take notice of who the personality is


  • 1st what a cutie!
    2nd holly cow they have raised 4 other kids… still breathing. Leave them alone


  • For heavens sake people – he has four other children – none have died – leave him alone.


  • At least the commenters were reasonably polite.


  • Although I agree that bubs at this age should face in, it’s not my child! I’m sure they’re aware of baby issues having had 4 others!


  • People need to give less unsolicited advice and bite their tongues.


  • Cute photo. I don’t feel the need to comment any further and dissect the image.


  • go dad


  • it is his 5th kid, pretty sire he knows what he is doing by now


  • The photo is clearly for a photograph. On the second photo he has the baby turned around. Towards him . People need to get a grip, and worry about more important things. It’s his fifth child!!

    • I had the same thought – it was for a photo op.


  • It’s not shaming. If anything, it is being helpful.


  • I have to agree with what they’re saying. They’re not being nasty, just pointing out the correct way to use it. I don’t see it as shaming like other celebs get.
