Julia Stiles defends herself against mommy shamers

Julia Stiles has a few choice words for moms scrutinizing her every move.

The actress, who in November welcomed her first child with husband on Preston J. Cook, posted a photo of her carrying baby Strummer Newcomb Cook in a Tula baby carrier.

As it turns out, the baby wasn’t correctly placed and moms sure did let the actress know in the nastiest way.

“No offense to the negative comments….but I’m quite sure the feet being inside and little Strummer’s face not being visible were deliberate,” one person said in Stile’s defense. “Miss Julia is being gracious enough to give us a small peak at her beautiful baby boy and in all honesty doesn’t even have to do that. She covered him up as much as possible for the picture to promote the baby carrier…not to show off her son… Geez people, give the woman some credit.”

“It was brought to my attention that in the previous photo I am not holding my baby correctly,” Stiles, 36, started her response in a separate post on Saturday. “Wow, I didn’t expect that. What was supposed to be a shout out of products I like, suddenly becomes an invitation to comment on my baby, and my ability as a mother. That’s the internet for you…”

She says mothers always read the safety instructions, but warned trolls need better things to do with their time.

“But also, Instagrammers: instead of writing snarky comments about a 5 week old, try dancing around your living room to a Clash record. It’s way more fun,” she snapped.
