The unfortunate truth is parent shaming and being a member of the Duggar family tend to go hand in hand. Joseph and Kendra Duggar appear to be the latest victims after attention has been called to a recent update to their Instagram Stories.
Kendra and Joseph Duggar recently enjoyed a “little walk” with baby Addison.
It was a little less than 24 hours ago that Kendra and Joseph took to their shared Instagram account to share an adorable snapshot on their Instagram Stories. The snapshot featured the happy parents glowing with joy. According to the caption, they were enjoying a “little walk” with their small bundle of joy.
Kendra rocked a stripped long sleeved shirt while Joseph looked snazzy in a baseball cap. Unfortunately, fans could not see much of what Joe was sporting as he was also wearing baby Addison during their walk.
What was intended to be a sweet snap of the duo enjoying a little time outside with the newest addition to their family was not well-received by some of their followers. In fact, a Reddit thread quickly emerged taking issue with the photo. Namely, some of the Duggars’ followers had a problem with how they had little Addison dressed.
Counting Fans took issue with the massive headband bow wrapped around Addison’s face.
According to the Reddit thread, it was the massive headband bow that some Counting On fans took issue with.
Noticeably, the headband bow was several sizes larger then it really needed to be for the newborn. The headband also really wasn’t wrapped around the Duggar newborn’s head at all. Instead it was pushed down and appeared to be wrapped around her face and eyes instead.
The massive bow even looked to be over her eyes and possibly her nose. Were they using it to shield her face from the sun? Was it making it difficult for the little one to breathe?
Duggar Fans had several concerns.
- “The bow is slipping dangerously low, it could almost be considered a bowtie? Careful folks, someone might think you have a boy.”
- “These bow get more and more hideous why oh why do they do this?!”
- “Wasn’t there literally a post the other day about a baby that died because the bow slipped over her mouth? Because that is where this pic is leading.”
- “That poor baby. You can see it creating an indent on her head. I hope they are smart enough to remove it when baby is sleeping. What a huge suffocation risk.”
Aside from fans thinking the size of the bow is ridiculous, there is a major concern for the safety of little Addison.
According to Baby Gaga, headbands are one of the many accessories that pose a huge risk to the safety of a small baby. If the headband were to slip down over the Addison Duggar’s nose and mouth, for example, it could cause the baby to suffocate.
Some experts also claim headbands cause cause issues with the growth of a baby’s skull as well as brain development. Headbands are not recommended to be on a little one’s head for “no longer than 5 minutes.” While they are fine for photo shoots, experts recommend removing them immediately after. Moreover, it is never a good idea for babies to sleep in one.
