Samantha Faiers faces pram criticism
The Only Way Is Essex star Samantha Faiers has come under criticism again, only days after her last controversy, for leaving baby Paul unstrapped in his pram.

The 25-year-old mum of one shared a photograph of her young son lying down in the Balmoral Silver Cross pram with her 1.6 million Instagram followers.

The picture was taken at the 70th birthday party of Sam's grandfather where the whole family, including partner Paul, sister Billie and her daughter Nelly, were all in attendance.

My baby's getting so big 👶🏼😌 💙

Dressed in adorable dungarees by luxury children's clothing designer Rachel Riley, five-month-old Paul was laughing at the camera while mum took his photograph.

However, fans were quick to start criticising Sam for not having properly secured Paul into the pram. Alex Phaea said; 'That pram may be cute but surely he can climb out of it at his age? I'd be worried about him falling out the second I turned my back.'

Britt Smith added; 'That's why you don't leave them unsupervised or not strapped in when they become more mobile. It's not the pram that's not safe, is people underestimating babies that are the problem.'

Other people picked on the outfit that Sam had chosen to dress her baby in, with Pat Hurry saying; 'Shouldn't put shoes on babies until they're walking especially with no socks.'

Luckily for Sam, other fans were quick to jump to her defence, including Hannah O'Grady who replied to the critics; 'Paul isn't even sitting up yet! Think you are being a bit pathetic.'

Stephanie Holt reminded the celebrity mother that no matter what she does, someone will always criticise; 'Lovely pic. Surprised the pillow police ain't out telling you how to parent too.'

Just this week the mother-of-one was also criticised for letting Paul face outwards when being carried in a baby sling.

Official guidelines from Mothercare state that between 0-6 months your main concern is keeping your baby stable, supported and comfortable while they lie flat on their back.

Do these people have nothing to do but criticize others? Iยดm sure that lovely baby was watched carefully by his Mum. I never used reins with any of my four children (in the 1950ยดs) when they were so young (that came later), and they are safely grown up with their own children now. Congratulations on the lovely photo, by the way!


Those people complaining need to get a life. It's very highly unlikely that a baby that age will be able to climb out. Also, I'm sure she didn't leave him unsupervised. I'm not a fan, but she can't do right for doing wrong.


What a beautiful picture of a happy and contented looking baby. I took a photograph of both my son's sat up in their pram at this age and they came to no harm and that was 31 and 27 years ago . What makes all these critics so sure this young mum has not got reins to put on the baby after this photograph! I did.
