Gordon Ramsay Slammed Online For Holding Son Oscar In Unsafe Way!
Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay recently came under fire for the way he was seen holding his three month old son Oscar in a baby carrier.
The 52 year old shared the sweet pic on Instagram recently with the caption “Walk in the park with my new best mate!” His son incidentally was also tagged in the photo and appears to have his own Instagram account already. Crazy!
Fans were less than impressed with how Oscar looked in his baby carrier and were quick to point out to Gordon exactly what they felt was wrong with the uncomfortable looking position of Oscar.

Here are some of the comments his followers left on the photo:
“That support is not ergonomic and the child’s forehead position is not recommended. I advise you to change support for a more pleasant babywearing experience for both!”
“That harness is way too low and he should be facing towards you not away from you!”
“Babywearing? This is the wrong way 😵 take some lessons and you’ll love wear your baby rightly and safely.”
“He’s so SCRUMPTIOUS. However, please take a look at TICKS rules for baby wearing, to keep you and Oscar safe.”
“I was thinking the SAME thing!! I was like ‘Cute…but he’s definitely not wearing that baby correctly.”
There is a UK checklist system for children in baby carriers, known as the TICKS system. It’s a universal safety acronym endorsed by the Royal Society of the Prevention of Accidents.
It stands for, “Tight, In view at all times, Close enough to kiss, Keep chin off the chest, and Supported back.” According to the guidelines “a baby should never be curled so their chin is forced onto their chest as this can restrict their breathing. Parents should always ensure there is always a pace of at least a finger width under their baby’s chin. Baby’s back and pressing gently- they should not uncurl or move closer to you.”
There were however those commenters who defended the chef saying they’re pretty sure he knows how to raise babies by now- he has done it 4 other times already!
“To and for all who seem to think that Gordan Ramsey doesn’t know how to hold his own child HE KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING THIS ISNT HIS FIRST CHILD!!! And his baby is just fine, so just let him take care of his child and you all go take care of your own children!! I’m sick and tired of people telling other people what they need or should do with there child and this isn’t Gordon Ramsay’s first time he knows what he is doing !!”
“Everybody needs to calm the fuck down about the baby. This isn’t his first kid and the baby will be perfectly fine. Christ, people have gotten so fucking sensitive about everything!”
Gordon Ramsay is yet to respond to the critics but we can be pretty sure it not be suitable to publish! Hahaha!
