Another troll commented that the royal looked “so awkwardly uncomfortable” caring for her infant.But Dr. Jen Trachtenberg, a board-certified pediatrician, says the new mother was doing absolutely nothing wrong at the charity polo match.“There is no one right way to hold a baby,” the author and creator of Pediatrician in your Pocket, told TODAY Parents . “You want to make sure the baby is secure and that’s exactly what Meghan was doing. She’s holding him tightly with two arms. He’s not crying and he’s not uncomfortable.”Dr. David L. Hill agrees. “I imagine that people were concerned that she was not cradling the baby’s head adequately," the pediatrician and author of "Parenting Like a Pro" told TODAY Parents. “But in general, at two months of age, there is enough head control that you don't have to constantly cradle the head."
The Duchess experienced mom-shaming before she even gave birth. Back in December, she was criticized for rubbing her bump too much in pictures.
