Chrissy Teigen: Mom-Shamed for Doing THIS to Her Son!

by at .

When she's not shredding critics of her post-baby body, Twitter Queen Chrissy Teigen is busy being a parent.

She recently shared a medical treatment that her infant son, Miles, is undergoing.

Mom-shaming trolls crawled out of the woodwork to give her a hard time. Take a look at how she perfectly responded:

On Monday, Chrissy Teigen dropped something of a bombshell about her young son, Miles, whom she shares with John Legend.

"Baby miles getting fitted for a little helmet today for his adorable slightly misshapen head," Chrissy tweeted.

"So if you see pictures," she wrote. "Don't feel bad for him because he's just fixing his flat."

Celebrities are always under a microscope -- also, Chrissy shares a lot on social media.

Fans would have noticed sooner or later.

"And honestly," Chrissy said. "He's probably gonna be even cuter with it somehow."

"GUYS," Chrissy wrote in all caps.

"My baby bug got his head-shaping helmet today!" she announced.

"Please don't feel bad for him if you see photos," she reminded her followers.

(More realistically, she was telling her fans who had missed the first memo)

"Be is a happy bug and we're just fixing his flat," she repeated.

Chrissy then joked: "I have been told it’s too late for my head."

Baby skulls are not fully formed at birth.

It takes months for the different plates -- think of them almost like tectonic plates -- to fully merge.

In the mean time, there is cartilage in addition to bone, which makes the baby's head malleable.

Useful for childbirth, but if a baby keeps sleeping in one certain way, it can alter the baby's skull shape as an adult.

Chrissy and John are taking very responsible steps towards safely and painlessly helping their baby boy grow up with a symmetrical skull.

Unfortunately, some people came out of the woodwork to mom-shame Chrissy for giving Miles a helmet.

They jumped to all kinds of conclusions -- and Chrissy didn't stand for it.

"Good morning trolls!" Chrissy announced on Tuesday.

"Just a friendly reminder that you do not indeed know absolutely everything," she wrote.

This, for many of them, must have been new information.

"Miles has been seeing a physiotherapist," Chrissy clarified. "We didn’t just go straight to helmet."

Chrissy makes it clear that they tried other, less visible approaches to protect the shape of Miles' skull.

"We tried muscle work," Chrissy shared. "And will continue."

Some of the trolls had bombarded her with insistence that having a 100% preventable lopsided skull is totally fine, actually.

"Also your flat headed kid turned out fine," Chrissy summarized in her post. "Yes yes yes I agree."

In other words, she's not saying that trolls needed to do anything differently than what they did.

More to the point, she wishes that mom-shamers would just shut up and go away.

She also joked that other mom-shamers, who gave her a hard time about dancing with Luna, were right, that she could have "torn off" Luna's arms.

Chrissy explains why she said anything on the subject in the first place.

"Just didn’t want you guys to see pictures and wonder," she shared.

"Not promoting anything," she wrote. "Just sharing our story!"

So it is not a product endorsement nor an incident of her telling people how to care for their lumpy-skulled babies.

"Thank you," Chrissy told the trolls. "Back to your bridge now."

That's a hurtful stereotype. Some trolls live in bogs and others live in sewers. It's 2018, Chrissy.

Chrissy has been hounded by mom-shamers since she was pregnant with Luna.

Seriously -- people tweeted at her, insisting that she not eat cereal with artificial colors while pregnant.

(Somehow, Luna did not pop out rainbow-colored, but she's still pretty cute)

There are genuinely terrible parents on this planet. Chrissy Teigen is not one of them.

And yet some people continue to hound her and demand that she parent differently.

Perhaps it is because she is known to engage on social media and they know that she'll probably see it.

Most bullies, at the end of the day, just want to feel like they made an impression. It makes them feel important or powerful.
