Am I being unreasonable to be upset about a friend taking pictures of and with my 4 months old and posting them online without permission?
I did not see her taking the photos as I was preparing a bottle and left my baby with her. I have never posted any pictures of my baby online anywhere and wasn't planning to. I was browsing late at night after the outing we were at and found the photo posted to her instagram without permission and with my baby's name in the caption. I was really upset and angry. I felt like my right was taken away from me. I texted her to take it down but got no response. I assumed she was asleep as it was pretty late but she hasn't responded or taken down the picture until this moment!
Note: I asked really nicely in the text.
What do I do if I don't want people posting pics in the future?
I've been in simular situation the person was asked to take the photo down and it was never mentioned again. My dh family would be quite active online and knew it was going to be a problem they were told early on not to post any photos, my friends and family knew not to. If you don't trust them to take photos and not post them then don't allow them to take photos. Perhaps next time ask friend to bring baby into same room as you so they don't get an opportunity. It was very rude to even take photo without asking first IMO

Definitely not being unreasonable.
I'd flip if someone used my children to get likes in a picture, I post nothing online of my children and there will be nothing of them online until they're old enough to have their own accounts and choose what they want to post.
If someone wants to litter their social media with scan photos, baby bump pictures and images of their kids then that is fine. But I am not one of those people and when I ask others not to post thing online of my kids I'd expect them to respect my wishes and not do it. Whoever it is needs more than a nicey-nicey text OP.
Yeh, I wouldn't flip but I'd ask her to take them down.
