Jools Oliver has been criticised yet again, this time over her choice of baby carrier.
Hubby, Jamie, Oliver, shared a gorgeous snap of Jools and baby River to wish his wife a Happy Birthday. What followed was a stream of negative comments from followers criticising them over the baby carrier little River was being worn in.
Comments included -
– “Jamie, you inspire people so much when it comes to healthy food… Please do take a few minutes to read about how carriers of this type are bad for the baby, regardless of what the producers say! Carrying is a great thing, but it must be done responsibly – like eating.”
– “Happy birthday Jools, you look wonderful, and I agree not a good choice of carrier. I know you educate about food but let others educate you about ergo carriers.”
Another read “Please do your research or ask your physio. Narrow-based carriers are not only dangerous but also uncomfortable for baby! River doesn’t look particularly cosy in that pic. Should never front-face! Also hip dysphasia can be undiagnosed in 15 per cent of babies, so why take the chances?”
– Another added: “Happy birthday! But why use a non-ergonomic carrier for the baby? It’s bad for his spine.”
Daily Mail reports, The National Childbirth Trust (NCT) offers the following advice on baby slings: ‘Carrying a young baby facing out is not recommended, as it forces your baby’s back straight against your chest, and causes their legs to dangle in a harness like position.
‘This can mean the baby’s weight rests on his crotch rather than being spread from his bottom and thighs.’
Childcare expert Clare Byam-Cook doubted the criticism, telling MailOnline: ‘If it was known to be bad for baby’s hips then, quite simply, it wouldn’t be on sale.
‘The Oliver’s can afford to buy the best equipment and I’m sure they wouldn’t risk their baby’s health.’
It’s not the first time Jools has been mummy shamed. Just weeks after welcoming her fifth baby Jools was ridiculed from the trolls attacking her ‘post-baby body’.
I have to admit when I saw this image the other day I was waiting for the comments to start.
Jools is far from new to this parenting gig, I think she might have some clue about what she is doing.
