To think there is absolutely no need to post a photo of your baby’s shit on social media?!

A celebrity mum has, in a series of pictures of her baby she’s used for an #ad for some baby wipes, included a photo of her son’s shit. Literal excrement.
Putting to one side my absolute hatred of the way some mums have to monetise every single moment of their child’s life, I just don’t see why anybody would want to put a photo of their baby’s poo on the internet for all the world to see. How desperate for that waterwipes cash is she?! And more importantly, how humiliating is that going to be for her child in the future?!
Am I being unreasonable?AIBU

I think some of these influencers and indeed even some of us consumers have drank so much of the koolaid that we no longer really have a grasp of what is reasonable or not. This is just a case in point. I watched a documentary last night about a youtube family and their father quite literally films them every waking second - a tantrum, bedtime, stories, the lot!!!

It’s not funny, cute or interesting. It’s foul.
People actually do that?? My son poo'd in the bath today, my first reaction was to get him out and fish it out. Who would even think to take a photo and share???
Maybe in some twisted way op the picture poster thought "look how good these wipes are for clearing my child's poo" like above... crazy.

I saw one of them post a picture of a vest covered in poo because they had to 'cut it off'.
Obviously all the replies were about the fact you can pull it downwards using those little shoulder things but that wouldn't have been as much entertainment I guess.

This was my thought. I'm in a similiar group for allergy babies.
Under normal circumstances it's a bit weird but not something I would get too worked up about.

Selling their souls but it's particularly horrific when they do the same thing to their children.By the time these children grow up I believe this sort of over sharing will be called out for what it is and regarded as abusive. We have a family member who has hugely promoted her business through her children and it's far from pleasant. It's along the lines of I can sympathize with you ordinary plebs but I'm beautiful, rich and successful.Now watch my 2 yr old have a shocking tantrum in my slightly disheveled kitchen.I'm just like you really so give me your money.

There’s no need to post anything on social media though is there- it’s a choice and she obviously thinks it’s funny/ interesting and her friends will appreciate it. I wouldn’t hence why none of my friends do it! But tbh it’s probably no worse than Britain’s first bollocks, anti vaccine propaganda, MLM, share this or a child will die, or someone checking in every time they go to costa. My advice is choose your Facebook friends as if they are people you would at least be prepared to go for a coffee with, mute or delete.

I saw this and I was horrified. That poor child when he grows up and finds out his mother literally sold photos of his soiled nappy.
Strange, because Rio's older three children always have their faces turned away or pixilated in public photos, so clearly he wants to protect their privacy. But they're ok with sharing pictures of their newborn son's poo stained wipes. Bizarre what people will do for money and attention.
