Becoming a parent is such a wonderful thing and, for some, parenting comes naturally, but, for others, not so much... One mom has been heavily criticized after someone snapped a photograph of her baby hanging off the back of her barstool.
And all we can say is... Yikes.
There's one big milestone that many of us will experience at some point in our lives...Becoming parents.
An incredible moment for the families involved.

And for some parents, they find the swing of parenthood straight away.It comes naturally to them.
Changing diapers, throwing up, late-night feeds, no problem...

But not all caregivers have that same response.

But there are just some obvious no-no's we're all aware of...
via: GettyMost parents stay away from exposing their young children to harmful substances including drugs and alcohol and they also want to keep them out of harm's way.
But this one mom didn't get the memo.
via: GettyAnd it wasn't just the fact that she had her baby in a stuffy-looking bar along with her male companion...
The biggest issue was with the way she left her child hanging off a barstool.That's right, this careless mother left her baby suspended from a brown barstool while she enjoyed some alcoholic drinks with another guy, looking very unconcerned for the child's safety.
If there wasn't a picture to prove it, I wouldn't have believed it either.But it happened and someone snapped the evidence and posted it to a Reddit thread and soon after, it went viral.
Of course, you're not going to get away with something like that, are you?Hundreds of comments flooded in criticizing the mom.
The woman has not been identified as of yet.But the picture is causing a bit of a stir online with some people coming forward and claiming that the person taking the photograph was just as bad for not intervening.
