On Wednesday afternoon, Meghan Markle took baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor on his first public outing.
The pair headed to Berkshire to watch Prince Harry participate in a charity polo match.
Photos of them hanging out with Kate Middleton, George, Charlotte and Louis quickly emerged and the new mum soon began facing criticism for the way she was holding her little boy.
Some cruel trolls accused her of holding the baby awkwardly and not knowing what she was doing – others thought she was about to drop him.
One wrote: "Why can't she hold the baby properly after two months? It looks weird. Clearly the nanny looks after him most of the time."
Another added: "She is clearly struggling and not yet familiar with the best way to hold a baby that is covered by a blanket. Her hand position is also awkwardly placed."
But now several parenting experts have come to the defence of the Duchess of Sussex.
Speaking to Today.com, Dr. Jen Trachtenberg a certified pediatrician, proclaimed Meghan was doing nothing wrong.
She said: "There is no one right way to hold a baby.
"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 agreed, adding: "I imagine that people were concerned that she was not cradling the baby's head adequately.
"But in general, at two months of age, there is enough head control that you don't have to constantly cradle the head."
So there you have it folks, from the mouths of parenting pros.
