Scarlett Moffatt hits out at trolls who criticised appearance of her baby son
| Last updated
Being a parent is hard enough, let alone doing it in the public eye.
Despite this, people have been mum-shaming Scarlett Moffatt over her baby son’s appearance (Yes, really!).
However, the Gogglebox regular has hit back at the critical comments, which had been left on a recent Instagram post.
For those not in the know, the TV personality welcomed her first child with her partner, Scott Dobinson, earlier this year.
Moffatt announced the exciting news back in June, telling fans that her son, Jude Xavier Dobinson, had been born in Durham Hospital.
Understandably, the proud mum has been in a baby bubble ever since and gave her 2.4m Instagram followers an update earlier this week.
It was as the 32-year-old celebrated her nan’s birthday, with Moffatt sharing several photos of her little one enjoying the party with relatives.
The Gogglebox star gushed in the caption: "How do I have a 2-month-old baby already!? Spending the whole weekend with my family for my Nanny’s 70th.”
“We played bingo, did quizzes, and ate burnt sausages from the bbq it was perfectly imperfect. We’ve all laughed from start to finish & Jude even went in a pool for the first time.
Whilst plenty of people cooed over the adorable Instagram photos, not everyone was impressed with the little lad’s footwear - as some made clear in the comments.
As they reacted to the photo of the little boy’s footwear, one user pointedly wrote: "Beautiful picture but please don’t put soft shoes on a two-month-old baby.”
They continued: "At that age they should only be wearing socks or babygro’s."
Understandably, Moffatt was annoyed at being mum-shammed and replied to the comment. She argued: “…they are soft shoes! They’re Nike crib shoes! I’m not gonna put trainers on my baby."
However, this didn’t stop others from hitting out at the Gogglebox regular over her son’s shoes.
Another added: "Even when he starts to cruise around furniture he should be bare foot or in padder. Not a fashionista……does not need to be a fashion baby! Care of feet are so vitally important."
Thankfully, other fans weren’t so critical, with the TV personality later thanking them after the backlash.
"Thanks for all the lovely comments- also these are the Nike soft bottom crib shoes they’re not trainers," she told fans.
Honestly, you’d think people would have something better to do than obsess over shoes on social media.
