Chrissy Teigen: 1. Mommy Shamers: 0.
Today is a very sad day for those who live to pounce on others' parenting mistakes. Chrissy Teigen took no chances before tweeting a super-cute photo of 15-month-old daughter Luna in her car seat — she double and triple and quadruple checked that Luna was buckled in perfectly so there would be nothing for the Judgy McJudgersons to criticize.
Welcome to NYC, baby! pic.twitter.com/OArARK0GQS— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) July 23, 2017
The photo is so stinking sweet, you might get a cavity. In it, Luna is beaming at her mom with a megawatt grin. Teigen captioned the pic, "Welcome to NYC, baby!"
A Twitter user commented wryly on the photo, "So brave of you to post a car seat picture... these are sanctimommy’s fave things to criticize on.”
oh trust me, I looked at that chest plate for 10 minutes before posting! https://t.co/7XNqVD9yNc— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) July 23, 2017
Teigen's response was classic. “Oh trust me, I looked at that chest plate for 10 minutes before posting!”
Teigen has been on the frequent receiving end of mommy-shamers' vitriol, starting when Luna was only 2 weeks old and Teigen and husband John Legend went out — without the baby — for a dinner date. Some of the internet acted as if Teigen and Legend had left their newborn alone in a den of rabid wolves.
I went to dinner. People are pissed. Good morning! pic.twitter.com/oQ54mtet8c— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) April 24, 2016
“I knew mommy-shaming was a thing, but I didn’t think it would come from going to dinner,” Teigen said on Good Morning America.
But as we all now know, mommy-shamers can find fault with pretty much anything. Teigen was also raked over the coals for the (completely harmless, completely A-OK) way she was photographed holding Luna when Luna was 6 months old.
Teigen replied to that brouhaha with a tweet, "Let me know how you hold your baby when she’s about to go in a stroller and there are 20 camera flashes at night.”
One of our fave Teigen tweets? "I am a proud shamer of mommy shamers."
We can definitely get behind that.
