This video of a baby being tickled has sparked a whole heap of judgement.
New mum, Audrey Roloff, shared the footage of her husband and baby in fits of laughter on Facebook. She never expected to receive so many negative comments.
Some complained that the four-month-old baby had no control to stop the tickling, while others made wild suggestions about harm, torture and child abuse.
“NOT a good idea to tickle a child,” a follower wrote, “It renders them absolutely HELPLESS with a natural uncontrollable response of laughter.”
A second person recounted how they hated being tickled as a child and found it so relentless “I could not catch my breath enough to say stop.”
“Don’t tickle babies it will make them stutter. It hurts their nervous system.”
Earlier this week another new mum was being slammed for sharing a photo of her new baby. Read more on that here.
Can we just stop all the judgement and cries of abuse, PLEASE!
