Does She Need Help?

Carrie Symonds has sparked a debate on social media after she was spotted wearing baby Wilfred in a forward-facing baby carrier while out for a walk in Italy.

Boris Johnson’s fiancee, 32, was seen with her five-month-old son in Lake Como, where she’s staying at the £600 a night Grand Hotel Tremezzo on a girls holiday.

Carrie, who was casually attired in a Ganni frock and Superga trainers, carried five-month-old Wilfred in the £119.90 Ergobaby 360 All Positions Baby Carrier.

The carrier is intended for use with newborns aged up to four months old and features an ergonomic design meaning baby can be carried forwards or opposed to facing inwards.

However, several people took to Twitter to call out the Prime Minister’s partner for wearing it incorrectly, with some expressing concern for the little one’s well being and several people noted that he was uncomfortable and on one side.

One person tweeted: ‘For the love of God will someone teach @carriesymonds how to use a baby carrier properly. That poor kid is constantly been dangled by his crotch with his head all over the place’.

Another wrote: ‘Dear @carriesymonds please will you google safe babywearing? He should be facing you and much higher up, close enough to kiss.’

And one remarked: ‘Outrageous behaviour. Made worse by a photo showing Wilfred’s head dangling off to the side without support. @carriesymonds needs some parenting instructions.’

According to the Ergobaby website, the ergonomic 360 All Positions carrier offers every carry position with a forward-facing option.

The carrier comes with a lumbar support waistbelt for extra lower back comfort and adjustable padded shoulder straps for neck and shoulder comfort and Emily Williamson, a professional carrying consultant and founder of South London Slings, told a news outlet that there are tons of carriers which offer the option of carrying your baby facing outwards.

The bottom line is that your baby needs to be able to completely support their head independently so that it stays steady as you walk.

Babies tend to have the strength for this anywhere between 3-6 months, before this, they should always be held high on the chest, facing towards the body.

If your baby’s head tilts or drops at all as you walk then they’re not ready to be carried facing outwards and all babies will go more limp when they’re sleeping and if their head drops forward it can make it hard for them to breathe.

So, Carrie Symonds should be ashamed of herself and she’s obviously not that bright and it’s surprising she even remembered that she had a baby, but never mind which way to carrie a baby, who’s paying for the £600 a night hotel – can’t be Boris Johnson because evidently, he’s broke.

But these carriers are dangerous, full stop because if the mother falls over, the first to get injured is the baby and it’s truly incredible and shameful that the Prime Minister’s girlfriend is even in Italy.

He leads the country and the advice to travel to Italy is only essential travel.

If you lead a country and create laws, then you must obey them, but it seems that if you’re Conservative Government then there’s no need to obey the rules and you know what, this baby will want for absolutely nothing, will see no poverty, will not go unfed, unwashed, unkissed, unadored and will receive all that’s needed to have a lovely life.

But for crying out loud put the child in a pram if you can’t carry him correctly.

This image of him with his head lolling all over the place, all one can think of is how painful his little neck will be after and Carrie Symonds seems clueless of this.

Babies heads are quite heavy compared to the strength of their neck muscles to support them and he would be so much better in a pram and she looked like she was carrying a 25 kg bag of spuds.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...

  1. If i be honest i think everyone should take a step back and think about how there are rasing their own kids, the things I see on a daily basis shocks me people do not know how to bring up their own young yet are really quick to judge this women! I see millions of people walking there kids in low down buggies so the kids are sucking on exhaust fumes from cars, kids kicking and screaming in the street, kids hitting the parents…… wow, yet this no dought busy women has been out shopping the child clearly is comfortable or else he wouldnt be sleeping!!! Not to mention its been a long day out spending time shopping with her child (this women could easily hire a nanny) and the child has fallen asleep in a what looks like uncomfortable position to other people, yet how many times have peoples kids fallen asleep on a car seat and its the same outcome?……. you get my point, also our MP that everyone seems to critises has attended one of our top universities worked his butt off as a journalist then head of defence and now our MP how many people thing a trip to Italy is well deserved for his wife and child 👏 I will be honest and have to say i disagree with this in its entirety.


    1. To begin with, Boris Johnson’s flirtation with dishonesty has cost him at least three jobs and damaged his reputation with the people of Liverpool and London and then Boris Johnson encountered a possible private prosecution for intentionally deceiving voters during the EU referendum campaign.

      Boris Johnson told fib’s to the Queen and he lied to the country and he’s lived a pampered life, and he’s already told a newspaper outlet that he’s worried about supporting his children, four of which are in university, on his £150,000 Prime Ministerial salary and now he’s pleading poverty and concerned that he might not be able to afford childcare for his youngest son Wilfred, who is less than a year old.

      Opinions can be persuasive and many do give their opinions on various things, especially when it comes to the Prime Minister and his fiancee Carrie Symonds, but ultracrepidarianism is the habit of giving opinions and advice on matters outside of one’s knowledge, of which many people do as well.

      It has been more than once that the Prime Minister and Carrie Symonds have been shamed for using a baby sling.

      This is the man whose deplorable handling of the pandemic situation has been so pathetically inadequate he needs a baby carrier to carry his baby and I wonder how many nappies Boris Johnson has changed whilst conducting a business call with the other?

      Yes, of course, everyone is entitled to a holiday if they can afford one, but we simply don’t trot off to Italy at the drop of a hat, especially when our leader has said that travel is not essential. What he really meant was that it was essential for Carrie Symonds but not for common people like ourselves.

      If you want to make the rules Boris, then you must stick to them yourself, and do not exercise your right as a Prime Minister to do as you please.

      There have been multiple accidents relating to baby slings, one example is when a 17-day old baby slipped from her baby sling onto the pavement hitting the front of her head when her mother accidentally tripped and fell over.

      And a survey done by the Department of Trade and Industry from 1992-97 in 18 hospitals in the United Kingdom revealed that there were 20 documented cases of sling related injuries. There were no fatal injuries, but two babies were admitted, one of whom had a skull fracture.

      And it was recommended that simple safety measures were taken such as ensuring that the child fits snugly in the harness, with the head supported if the baby was less than 6 months old, and body straps and limb restraints to hold the baby in position and that the person carrying the young infant should use an arm to keep the child close to their torso.
