Audrey Roloff Shamed For Posting Photos of Her Baby's Butt
Signs of a serious rash on your toddler's bottom
What should you do if your child is obsessed with their private parts? Toddlers, for example, often enjoy being naked and have fun playing with their body, she says. Responding with sensitivity is key, she says. Parents are encouraged to use real names to label private body parts to help communicate openness and acceptance of the body, Michalopoulou says. Parents should tell their children not to allow anyone to touch them in their private areas and to tell a trusted adult if they experience an uncomfortable touch by someone, even if that person is a family member or friend, she says.

Audrey Roloff, a reality star you might recognize from Little People, Big World , is on the receiving end of a whole lot of flak for posting naked photos of her infant daughter Ember Jean to social media. She posted the series of photos to Instagram on May 8 alongside a caption about the importance of being present as moms. Ever since, the comment section has been a source of mom-shaming. While there were some perfectly innocuous comments like, "Cute little baby toosh! A baby should have her autonomy and she can't speak up to ask to not be naked. It's not cute. Another person took the time to warn her of the potential dangers that come with posting these types of photos online: "Please be careful out in this not-so-nice world. These are such innocent and absolutely beautiful pictures and I know that your heart is pure, but not everyone else is so kind in this world. And although there's certainly a reason for concern about exposing babies and children online , some comments took a surprising turn, deviating away from the privacy issue altogether.
