AIBU to be hacked off at.......

........"celebrities" (known for being celebrities, rather than an actual job!) never bringing a changing bag or any of the other "stuff" you need to bring when going outdoors with a baby with them?!!!

For example, Kim Kardashian. I have never ever seen a picture of her carrying a changing bag; only the baby, now a toddler. My issue is that this then looks like the baby is being toted around as the latest commodity handbag, rather than actually depicting what a hard-working mum actually looks like!

For the record, no I don't buy trashy magazines or spend all day reading about "celebrities". But every time you go online, there is often random links to "celebrity" culture (even on news websites ads pop up for their "entertainment" section). Walking into any supermarket/newsagents, the "women's magazines" are full of this stuff on the front page.

I believe this portrays an inaccurate and unhelpful image of motherhood. What do you think?

She has nannies who will be carrying all that stuff behind her. I think YABU to take the time to even write this to be honest.

I think yabu. I salute anyone who managed to earn millions from pouting and prancing about to envelope-opening events. Lucky them. Some people will never have to do a days work in their lives and still fly around the world first class. I'm not one of them and suspect the majority of people aren't but I don't begrudge those who can.
As far as image of motherhood goes it's not really their job (or anyone's for that matter) to purport what motherhood should be or look like. As such I don't judge KK over lack of a nappy bag or whatever. Each to their own and all that.

I never carried a changing bag. Nappy/ wipes / spare babygrow in handbag and job's a good un. Didn't ever really 'get' that toting a weekend bag filled with stuff around

My arse is a bit like Kim's too. Sadly I have maching tummy / legs / arms / chins unlike her

I object far more if celebrity is toting baby plus designer changing bag, designer buggy and designer baby outfits. Agree with PoorNeglectedBike on what you need in your handbag but I have been known to make do with my anorak pocket or the inside of the pram as I don't really do handbags. Recommend mastering the art of changing babies on your knee.

Fair points InTheBox

My mum can change a nappy on her knee howabout, but I've not mastered it yet, still practising!

Her arse is her changing back. She has pouches, like a kangaroo, filled with nappies and wipes and sudocrem and a nanny.

Her arse is her changing bag...

I think I've got better things to do than care whether Kimmy K has ever been pictured with a free Boots baby club bag full of sour milk bottles and half a pack of dried out wipes is what I think.

I don't imagine anyone has her down as a realistic portrait of the average mum on the high street.
