For all we know, mom was snuggling and feeding her new baby and wanted to take a picture of how cute it was, sat it on dad's (or uncle's or brother's or whoever's) lap and snapped a quick picture.

I don't like propped bottles for any number of reasons, but I don't know this story so I'm not judging them.

 Yeah Ive seen that and now that im older and smarter it scares the life out of me. Whats going to happen if the baby chokes! My DS has even choked and got winded at the breast from OAL.

Quoting Toxic.Stardust:

my friend used to put her 3 month old in his car seat and put a rolled up blanket on his lap to prop his bottle up then walk away :/

mine did too. My right breast was making a ton of milk for a while and whenever she'd try eating she would choke and gag.

Quoting mamoore83:

I believe another mom mentioned this, but that device was designed for parents of multiples that literally don't have enough hands to feed them all. Of course there are parents who abuse the useful tool and turn it into a potentially dangerous crutch. It's sad that parents can't be bothered to parent sometimes though.


Quoting PolishMamma2:

 i SAW ONE THAT YOU HANG FROM THE TOP OF A CARSEAT!!!  ITS SO ISOLATING IN MY OPINION. I THINK THINGS LIKE THIS TEACH A CHILD TO BE WAY TOO INDIPENDENT TOO SOON.


Quoting mostlymaydays:

I saw something in a store once called a "Proppy" and it looked like a tiny boppy pillow but it was designed to prop up a baby's bottle until they could hold it themselves.

This!


Quoting Mrsfarr:

A. That could be pumped breast milk.

B. Those are a man's hands. You can't judge a mom for what her partner does.



Although, dood, put down the play station and pay attention to your kid.
