The voice of the people, Chrissy Teigen, may be private on Twitter these days, but she’s still using her platform to project the blunt parenting truths we can’t. Yesterday, her message was directed at mommy shamers: “Please do shut up.”

The saga began when one user tweeted a photo of Teigen awkwardly carrying baby Luna, criticizing her for the positioning. Never one to subtweet, Teigen shared the initial critique on her own feed, firing back with a matter-of-fact response.

She reminded her followers that one paparazzi photo is not indicative of her entire parenting style.

And when another user tried to circle back to the carrying controversy, Teigen ended the conversation.

Boom.

Of course, this isn’t the first time Teigen’s deflected mommy shamers. She’s been fielding parenting criticism since week one, when she and husband John Legend tried to go on a date shortly after Luna was born.

We’d also like to point out that there are much, much more unconventional ways to hold a baby. In fact, here are 17 of them.
