To think this is a vile photo not at all funny and would not be proud of it?

I know, I know its a facebook one, forgive me.

8 week old baby propped up in a bouncer chair with a tea towel bunched/shoved under its chin, a cushion on its body, with bottle propped on cushion, so it stays in babys mouth?

Under the caption - my feeding invention lol. 12 people like this.

It made me wince, looks horrid.

Sadly I suspect that it is not just a 'joke' photo.

Okay, ready to be told IABU - I usually am!

Definitely nbu, though yes, I'm sure plenty will be along to tell us otherwise.

High horse - get off it!

ps - UABU

Thanks NinkyNonker, glad I wont be the only one - but you were right - it took one second grin

Not funny imo but hardly vile

ScarletLady01 Sat 10-Sep-11 17:06:36

Agree with Talker, not something I'd do but I think vile is a bit strong. From the title I was expecting something completely awful!

usualsuspect Sat 10-Sep-11 17:07:51

Not vile no

You sound very sensitive OP

itsybitsy08 Sat 10-Sep-11 17:09:28

Ok, you got me, maybe vile was a tad attention seeking! grin
But I stand by horrid.

holds hand up I've done this when I had three other kids to attend to and no third arm to help out. Not ideal but sometimes needs must. As long as they aren't left unattended.

reelingintheyears Sat 10-Sep-11 17:10:48

I used to do that..grin

I don't like it.

At risk of starting a bunfight maybe that's cause I BF and to me feeding = cuddling. Can't separate the two.

BatsUpMeNightie Sat 10-Sep-11 17:11:15

Oh my OP you are a trifle precious aren't you? It's really not - you know - all that bad and there are certainly a million other things for you to get worked up about before this!

My sister did this with her first but he's 30 this year and no harm came to him, he was never left unsupervised so couldn't of choked but he was older than 8 weeks IIRC.

Yanbu, I think vile is the correct term. I can't imagine why anyone would be proud of that level of lazy parenting.

Catslikehats Sat 10-Sep-11 17:21:44

Pretty grim, why advertise that you can't be arsed hmm

earlyriser Sat 10-Sep-11 17:23:11

If she has time to take a photo and upload it to FB, then she has time to pick baby up and feed it herself.

usualsuspect Sat 10-Sep-11 17:26:05

Nowt wrong with a bit of lazy parenting

pigletmania Sat 10-Sep-11 17:26:18

YABU the person probably just did it for a joke for affect, not that they seriously do that. Lighten up a bit.

pigletmania Sat 10-Sep-11 17:27:06

Its like those funny photos of babies with adult glasses on and wigs just a funny photo

BatsUpMeNightie Sat 10-Sep-11 17:27:47

I also think it was meant to be a bit lighthearted unless the OP knows for sure that the parents are witless fucks?

sheepgomeep Sat 10-Sep-11 17:28:01

Ive did it with dd3 on occaision usually when I had 3 other dc to get ready for school and she needed a bottle. If I had dropped everything and fed her (it could take up to half an hour to feed her) then my others would be late for school.

Hardly lazy parenting. I fed her cuddling her at other times though so she was hardly neglected. I would not put it on fb though, thats just daft

ChillyCooper Sat 10-Sep-11 17:28:04

I assumed you were talking about a bottle of beer! As you're not, YAB (a bit) U

itsybitsy08 Sat 10-Sep-11 17:28:44

Well that is what I thought earlyriser.

Apparently, she is trying to teach it to feed itself. 8 weeks old.

Genius [hmmm]

HairyGrotter Sat 10-Sep-11 17:32:03

Lazy Parenting FTW

YABU, it's hardly vile. I've seen some gnarlier shit than that

itsybitsy08 Sat 10-Sep-11 17:32:12

No as I said in OP - I do not think it was meant as a joke.

Witless fuck describes parents perfectly.

And this is first baby, so no excuse of other children to be seeing too - in which case I can see needs must and this method would be preferable to a hungry baby screaming or kids late for school.
