Daughter Asks If She’s Wrong For Not Wanting Her Stepdad Near Her Baby Anymore Because He Took Her Photos During Diaper Change

Being a parent is a difficult job. You always have to be on your toes for your child’s needs, its growth and its protection. In the harsh world nowadays it is very important to protect one’s child as many things can harm it. Parents have to be very vigilant in this manner and keep an eye on the people their children are interacting with and their surroundings.

A mother on Reddit recently shared a relatable story that many parents might empathize with. She has a seven-month-old baby girl who is starting to crawl and sit up. During a diaper change, her mom placed the baby on a potty, which made the OP feel uncomfortable as everyone was watching. The OP’s mom explicitly instructed her husband not to take any photos of the baby without pants on. However, he disregarded this request and snapped a photo while on his phone. Despite the OP’s insistence that he delete the photo, he seemed indifferent, leading her to worry that he may not have deleted it and could potentially share it with others.

Feeling upset and uncomfortable about the situation, the OP questions if she’s overreacting and whether she should prohibit her stepdad from being around her daughter. Despite relying on her mom for babysitting while she’s at work, the OP is concerned about her daughter’s safety and privacy. She seeks advice on whether her feelings are justified and how to navigate the situation without causing unnecessary tension within the family.
