AIBU in thinking that this is not appropriate?

Family member has photo of DD (2) as screensaver on their phone. It's a sweet photo of her after a bath but she's not wearing anything. Would I be a bit fussy to express discontent with this? (BTW I'm not suggesting for a moment there's anything horrible or inappropriate, it's more how DD might feel about it when she's older.)

They'll probably change their screen saver by the time she is old enough to care.

No YANBU not as a screensaver. I love cutesy bath time pics, but wouldn't leave it on my phone in full view, I just don't PERSONALLY feel it's very appropriate.

However it would need careful wording as to how to approach it.

I wouldn't be happy with that as it's too visible to anyone glancing at the phone.
Just ask them to use a different one.

Yeah, will do thanks - it's just a bit hmm

How did family member get hold of the photo? I'm quite careful with what photos people have of the kids as I don't know how they'll use them.

Is it just from the waist up?

My GD, 19 months, has the adorable toddler fat rolls and I've got a few pictures on my phone.

I love her toddler Chunkyness.

It depends on exactly what you can see on the picture.

She has her back to the camera so you can see a bit of her bottom. They took the photo (I'm not a fan of photos without clothing, myself.)

A bit of her bottom?


Anyway, if her back is to the camera, how is anyone going to know it's her?

If her back's to the camera - assuming you can't see her face - what's the point of having the photo? confused

I think it's a bit odd to have a pic of someone else's child as your screensaver. Unless it's a grandparent.

I thought the same, babyboomer

TBH I wouldn't let anyone else take naked photos of my kids.

I don't care about naked photos that exist of me when I was a child. I wouldn't take a naked photo of someone else's child but I have photos of mine unclothed. I don't find it an issue. Mind you, before I share any photos of the dc I ask them if it's ok- well I have done since they were about 5, the baby still doesn't get a say, mostly because his response to most things is unintelligible.

Personally I can't get worked up about this.

If as an adult they're really upset by a picture of them nude as a toddler, then there's probably more going on that needs to be looked into.

I keep my Facebook etc locked down because I don't want all and sundry having access to my photos but if one was shared without my knowledge, it'd be no big deal. Because I don't take pictures that are indecent, ie, spread eagled!
