Mum Called Out For Giving Her Newborn Baby A Manicure
The anonymous photo, posted to Reddit, shows a newborn baby's hand gripping onto a woman's thumb.
The baby, who is wearing a yellow and white striped babygrow, appears to have been given a manicure.
Reddit users were quick to reply to the controversial photo, calling it out due to the baby's sharp nails.
"Baby nails are sharp enough as it is, those things would tear your face right up," wrote one user.
"More importantly, THE BABIES face," said another. "An itchy eye could result in permanent blindness."
"This is going to end badly," said a third.
A fourth added: "I hope they did this just for the picture but then again they let the baby's nails grow this much. Either way it's not good. I feel for the kid."
Others questioned the legitimacy of the photo, claiming that it had been edited for the photo.
"It isn't real... at that age, baby fingernails are like paper.... the are super thin and flimsy," said one user.

"That's what my first thought was," another replied, "Baby nails are already basically knives so why in the world would you add to them??"
"Definitely photoshopped," said a third user. "If there really were a mother daft and trashy enough to put fake nails on their baby like that, they sure as hell wouldn't have nails this short themselves like the hand holding the baby's."
Another Reddit user pointed out that the colour of the nails and nail bed were different.
"Those are not the baby's natural nails. Judging by the colour difference in the nail bed and the nail extension, I'd say that they're most likely SNS, acrylic or plain fake nails."
"More than likely fake nails pre-shaped before being glued on," they continued. "What baby is gonna sit still enough for a proper manicure? Still, very gross."
Another agreed: "Actually if you look close at the ends of the nails, it does look like the baby has nail extensions applied. Looks pretty shiny compared to the rest of the nail imo, like glue does when left on the nail."
But one user posed the question of whether the baby could have been born with extremely long nails.
Although others agreed that it could happen, they added that the baby's nails were unlikely to be that long.
