Khloe Kardashian recently shared a picture of her daughter True from two months ago, and critics immediately took to social media to mommy shame her.
Khloe Kardashian gave birth to True Thompson on April 12 of this year. Her baby is now three months old, and in these three months Khloe has received her fair share of criticism for her mothering. From everything to True’s pierced ears to Khloe’s workouts and even to Khloe’s decision to continue to live with True’s father Tristan, fans have had opinions about the first time mother.
The newest round of criticism for Kardashian came after she posted a picture of baby True, captioning it “About 2 months ago…” A post meant to lament at the pace with which True was growing turned sour really fast as fans took to the comments to criticize the position Kardashian was holding True’s head in and even her long nails.
“She’s so adorable! I could be wrong, but doesn’t a baby’s head need to be supported?” one fan gently asked.
“Look at that baby’s neck. I swear these people just have babies to take pictures of hem or use them as an accessory,” another aggressively suggested.
“There is no way you are looking after that baby on your own, changing diapers etc with those stupid looking long fingernails, who would risk poking and hurting their child for such vanity?” another wrote.
“Need to get mom nails. Short and square,” one fan recommended.
“I feel so bad for that poor baby, is a picture for Instagram more important than supporting her head?” another asked.
“Those nails tell me the baby is second over vanity… how many times does she get poked in a day?” another wrote.
Other fans jumped to Khloe’s defense, saying that as True’s mother and the aunt to many nieces and nephews, she did not need instructions from critics on social media.
“Came here just to see the mommy shamers. Khloe literally has a football team of nieces and nephews – I think she knows how to hold a baby,” one fan commented.
“Lmao the comments about the way Khloe’s holding her baby are ridiculous. She’s FINE, the way that her head is in this picture is similar to the way a baby’s is while in the womb. In other words, once again, she’s FINE. You all need to take it down a few notches with the mom-shaming and critiquing everything she (or any other celebrity) does with their babies. Nobody knows their child better than the parent,” another defended Khloe.
“Can people just shut the hell up???? @khloekardashian is a grown woman and can hold/carry HER child however she wants… it’s no one’s business,” wrote yet another fan.
“Why does every 13 year old in the comments think they know a baby’s anatomy better than mother’s do?” one questioned.
“I don’t understand why people have to be so negative. NO ONE is perfect. Kids don’t come out with an instruction manual attached to their forehead. Cut them all some slack. You learn as you go. Let them enjoy their babies,” another pointed out.
Season 15 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians returns on August 5th, in which fans will get a glimpse at Khloe’s pregnancy.
