One more thing about Britney Spears

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
I'm not even a Britney Spears fan, and so I can't really believe I am actually starting a new thread about her, but.....

has anyone noticed that she is always, always photographed holding her son? And shouldn't we be glad about this? There are celebrities who have babies and you never see the baby with them, but Britney (despite her car seat troubles) seems always to be holding or carrying her baby.

And that's a GOOD thing!!

Yeah, in the past few months she has been photographed holding her baby a lot. I think it's great. I saw a recent photo of her holding SP and her male assistant has a baby bjorn carrier on It's cute. It's nice to see that when she's not holding him, he is being worn.

Yeah...I'm glad to see her taking him everywhere...unlike poor Suri who stays home while Tom drags Katie out to "frolic" in the park barefoot for the cameras. I feel sorry for her...she looks so tired...I bet she just wants to stay home with her baby and enjoy her babymoon

You are right. As much as I pick on her, she really does appear to love that baby to bits. Which is good.

That picture of her crying after almost dropping the baby made me feel so sorry for her. I wanted to just give her a hug. Sigh.

I know! It makes me so mad that they focus so much on her with the baby. EVERY new mom makes mistakes, even celebrity moms, they just don't have cameras following their every move to document every stumble.

He's a cutie, too. Good thing he got his mom's looks!

Me too. It would have been so cool to be able to tell her "I know it seems like the whole world hates you, but it's not true. You don't have to be perfect. Being a mom can be really tough." or something like that. I hope someone around her is telling her something like that and meaning it.

yay!

actually, I have wondered this, and the image that the press gives about her is not the image that she portrays when she's photographed with the baby. Even the carseat troubles, I mean, she has been WITH the baby in every single photo of her. That has to be good.

Oooh, I don't want to open a can of worms, but I saw some pictures yesterday where it's probably a good thing she didn't have Sean with her. She had enormous heels on. Let me see if I can find them.

no nannies, YEAH!!!

I found them quickly, but the comments on the site are really rude - they totally crossed the line. So I don't know whether to post it or not.

I agree. She is always holding him. She appears to be a natural in attachment parenting, just not so much in the common sense department. Some of it is just her age. Not all young people lack common sense, but it is definitely something we as humans tend to fine tune with age.

I think it is pretty cool that she is always with her baby. She might have some stuff to learn, but she already knows that babiews need to be around their parents and not hired help. I think she is doing pretty well considering she seems to have no help from her husband, and is under constant criticism.

Ugh. You know, if she wears the heels, she gets torn to shreds about how a mother shouldn't wear heels that throw off her balance. If she didn't wear the heels, she'd get torn to shreds about how frumpy she looks. She can't win. People are such jerks.

Yeah, I'm glad she's always holding him, BUT in many of the pictures I've seen of her holding him, she is also holding an Avent bottle that is full of obviously full-strength applejuice. Or her mom or assistant or whoever she is with is holding it.

I'm not trying to nitpick, but I'm sure some younger girls are still watching every move Brit makes and they might be mamas now or soon, and little babies don't need juice in a bottle. Nobody really needs juice ever.

I've noticed it on magazine covers and everything. What gives, Brittney, give your boy some water or something!

I've read she has a nanny. Who knows if it's true...
post #20 of 31
Yah I'm glad she's always with S.P. and always holding him. And I do think the press should lay off because she is a mom and all mom's make mistakes.

But, I do think she should lay off the high heels.

And she's been pictured with her nanny holding S.P. and the nanny was the one with S.P. when he fell out of his highchair and had to be taken to the hosp. But regardless, she's with her baby more than 95% of all other celeb moms, so good for her! It's obvious she loves him and wants to spend a lot of time with him. But I think because she's a celeb maybe she didn't research the stuff we do, or take any classes or anything because she figured everyone else out there would help her.
