I say brag about those chunky cheeks and jiggly bits but i caught alot of slack when i posted my babys pics. I'm curious what everyone thinks. Can I post your reply on my blog? It's a completely neutral blog that will show everyones point of view...

I wouldn't advise it. There's nothing wrong with taking those photos, and having them with the rest of your private photographs, but I don't think it is appropriate to post them publicly. Once they are out there you can never get them back, and you have no control how others use them. It's not just naked baby pictures. I just think we should be careful of ANY pictures we decide to publish on the internet.

I post pics for my friends only (I know that's no guarantee, but...) and if the pic is a nude baby one.... I crop out the privates. Even on their newborn shots. Posting naked pics of my children is not something I am at all comfortable with doing.

I crop out genitals and generally don'y take naked baby pics anyways. I definitely have a few, but for the most part, my kids are always in at least a diaper.

I just don't don't really get the appeal of naked baby pics. I mean, it's great for mom and dad to squee over the kids bathing together, or a naked bum running around the garden. But that's a private thing to me. Not something I feel the need to be sharing with the world.

For me, it really has nothing to do with pedophiles or anything like that.

I just feel like some moments are special and don't need to be shared.

I don't think it is appropriate to take the pictures, let alone post up any nude pictures of children. What if a pedophile found the pictures of your precious baby and was using those picture for his own needs?

I wouldn't, it's a shame but the world is such a horrible horrible place :( that even a beautiful naked photo of a baby playing in the bath can be used for somebodies sick pleasure. Sadly I feel its better to be safe then sorry now a days.
