    Yep, me too. Dumb as hell 😎🤗 hehe.

    I still don't like those photos though! But I can see why people would.

    Default images of unsafe baby practices in the media

    ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1463152378.349916.jpg

    I fear some may have a conniption seeing this photo posted today on a local b&s page. The comments were pretty much saying how cute, stunning, beautiful the photo was...

    Pillow, pets, toys, the works! And people "loving" it... I might be mixing threads here but my judgey hat made an appearance. Not on the page though.

    My daughters cut looks like that. And she has never spent more than 30s in there.

    It's just a showpiece.

    Back to original question though, this kind of picture I do think may influence people especially as it's more of a real life scenario. Even if the baby does hardly sleep there and most of it is for show there will be people who see the photo and think it's ok. Personally I don't have a problem with images like the one in the OP as I do think people have common sense to realise it's staged.

    We all don't know everything, nor can we be expected to. I don't think we should ban everything with sharp corners and a potential risk, but in this case some more openness about the trickery involved in these shots is a good thing.
    Maybe they are...

    No, but really, I meant in relation to actually trying to recreate the pics. I doubt you would do that. THAT is what I am calling stupid.
