A Photo of Jamie Oliver Cooking With His Baby Has Fans Outraged!
Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver has been criticised by fellow parents over a photo he shared to his Instagram account a few days ago. The image shows himself holding his youngest boy, six month old River while simultaneously cooking over a stove.
‘This is really dangerous’ warns one of his fans over the ‘irresponsible’ kitchen photo.
The 41 year old dad of five was doing what he did best – frying up some food while balancing the little bub on his hip. Oliver captioned the photo, ‘Gotta start them young!….. bless baby River he’s so fascinated by the cooking.’
Baby River looked adorable dressed in his onesie and genuinely look interested in what dad was cooking up!
The post, which has nearly 2k comments, attracted a large amount of negative feedback from parents themselves who are calling the chef’s behaviour dangerous and careless.
People were concerned with how close baby River was to the hob and how safe it is to hold a baby with one hand in a kitchen environment.
One follower simply said, ‘Irresponsible’ while others warned, ‘This is really dangerous guys’ and ‘so adorable ? But PLEASE don’t hold your baby near the stove ????’.
Others offered the chef some helpful hints like ‘Perhaps put River in a backback!’ and ‘Keep him away from flames until he is at least four or five years old.’
Another shared their own experience, ‘Just watch out for those little hands! I once had an awful experience doing just that with my little girl. ?’
What do you think? Is it dangerous to cook over a hot stove while holding a baby? Or is it all a part of being a multitasking parent?
