Definitely don’t think it’s photoshopped….the grass goes over the baby’s foot, and there’s shadows…and if it was sitting in the grass, how would it be sitting up? Definitley too young to do so on it’s own. Needless to say, the parents are fucking tools.
Ha wait i’m confused, why is everyone calling this mean? From my point of view, they put the baby in the pumpkin and snapped the pic. Yeah it would be mean to leave him in there or make him walk around like that, but there’s no evidence that they did that, so could someone please tell me what the big deal about this pic is? Is it because the baby is crying? Cause baby’s cry over nothing all the time so it doesn’t mean that he’s abused or hates pumpkins or anything.
It’s mean because the kid looks really uncomfortable and they have tied the pumpkin lid to its head with string. That baby looks like it barely has the strength to hold up its own head without the weight of a chunk of pumpkin head strapped to its gourd.
Wow those parents are horrible. They should not be allowed to keep that baby. I don’t have kids and have no idea how to raise kids, but I am still able to have an opinion about this. The FBI should monitor facebook lameness and serve people citations.
I dont see the big deal. Once he wasn’t forced into the pumpkin or isn’t being squeezed or being made to walk around in it, it’s perfectly fine. As Kayne said, babies look uncomfortable during the teething process and the pumpkin really had nothing to do with it… not lamebook material
This is why women shouldnt get custody of children. Women are so ignorant that they dont know how to take care of kids anymore. They are more concerned with facebook and myspace, pink cell phones and flip flops to match.
I think the lamest part is that they unnecessarily made foot holes for the kid’s legs. When have you ever seen things popping out of pumpkins with legs hanging out? Never! Therefore the lamest part of this picture is the parents’ failure to realize that they should have just bought a bigger pumpkin to stuff the kid in.
Yes babies cry and at times are uncomfortable in their new life experiences, but this is no reason to deliberately cause distress to their baby. It should be their parental duty to avoid them experiencing situations that will cause them distress. And no the baby has not been forced to walk around with the pumpkin around its waist, this is probably because the child is so young that it cannot even sit up, let alone walk… so to say it would only be cruel if the child was forced to walk around wearing a pumpkin is totally idiotic (i mean to say you’re a f***ing dumb c**t derrrr)
i dont see whats so mean….its a baby and babys cry. as a mother of a 7 month old, i know that a baby can and will cry even when swaddled in a blanket. its not cruel and its not mean…..its a baby crying. what a shocker.
Of course its mean, yeh sure babies cry alot but thats usually because they WANT SOMETHING!!! That child has just been put in a pumpkin for entertainment… news flash, that is not what children are here for. That child can not possibly be comfortable like that, so yes it is mean and cruel – why would you deliberaterly make a baby uncomfortable and distressed? Its one thing if a baby is ‘swaddled in a blanket’ and crying, in that situation the parent is usually doing what they think is best for the child, but in this situation the parents/carers are clearly NOT doing what is best for the child = cruelty.
“i dont see whats so mean….its a baby and babys cry. as a mother of a 7 month old, i know that a baby can and will cry even when you arent beating and raping them. its not cruel and its not mean…..its a baby crying. what a shocker.”
Your logic says that if a baby cries when it’s not hurt, that means it’s fine to hurt the baby because it’s crying anyway.
I wouldn’t care except they have a big chunk of pumpkin top tied around it’s neck/head with a piece of string, and since the baby looks like it’s only a few weeks old it clearly doesn’t even have the strength to hold it’s head up. That’s like someone strapping a freakin la-z-boy recliner to your head and making you sit in cold wet goo.
Plus, why would you want to post a picture of your kid crying and looking miserable with its head yanked back?
Hey Jodi..there`s no hope for this one, but do your future children a favour…DON`T HAVE THEM! You`d think common sense would kick in about the same time you`re cutting a hole in a pumpkin so you can slide your newborn`s foot through it…but some people never fail to surprise me.
…and then she went and tied a piece of it to the poor childs head….wow….I hope when you`re old, and lose your ability to think for yourself, that your caregiver sits you in a pile of dog shit and ties a four wheeler on your head.
Babies don’t cry when they are fine. I’m sure this event won’t leave any imprint on the baby but its just not the point, the baby clearly isn’t happy.
We are all aware that babies aren’t made of glass, but there is just no need to cause extra distress to the child. Maybe the baby was smiling and having a great time at first, and then it started crying because it got bored of being sat in a pumpkin, but then its the caregivers responsibility to take the baby out and comfort them rather than take a picture and put it on facebook.
@ derp & Chelsea
I’m a mother of two (22 and 10).
This baby is no more than a few months old (chelsea, as a mother you think you would have recognised that) and should not have been placed in such a ridiculous costume.
It can barely hold its head up and looks utterly miserable (not obviously fine).
Babies this age need to be treated delicately, not shoved in some shitty costume for their parents amusement.
Would the poor baby not be really cold as well? Im not sure what the weather is like in America (if thats where it was taken), but the poor baby is outside in a vest, with bare leg in october – surely it would be cold!!

It was 82F/28C in Kentucky the other day (That’s in the middle of the country so it was probably warmer in the south), so no surely it wouldn’t be cold.
1. Kentucky is not even close to the middle of the country. I hope yo are not actually from there, but since it’s Kentucky, I wouldn’t be surprised. Actually, a larger portion of the US is cold right now as opposed to warm.
2. It’s pretty much wet everywhere, which is terrible for a new baby even if it’s warm.
3. I’m not saying newborns shouldn’t go outside. That’s preposterous, they have coats and blankets for these situations. But newborns shouldn’t be stuck in wet, mushy pumpkins no matter what it’s like outside. That’s just common sense.
Actually, if you judge it based on latitudes (where North Dakota is the top and Texas/Florida is the bottom), Kentucky is about 1/3 from the bottom of the US. If you go by just the states immediately above and below it, then it’s in the middle…but there ARE more states than just the eastern ones, you know.
non parents need to quit judging parents. you do not know the circumstances. you don’t know what parenting is like. you learn to quit sweating the small stuff and worry about more serious problems.
needless to say.
this child is clearly uncomfortable. i doubt even a month old. so no 10 seconds later, he will not be smiling i doubt he’s even capable. it would have been cute if the baby could hold his head up. but the parents tried too hard for a cute pic.
plus it is not that cold in certain regions of the us.
live in texas, it was perfect weather yesterday 70. the grass was not wet. america is a very large country and it is possible for all the weather not to be the same.
@ 79 – Regardless of whether someone is a parent or not, they are still entitled to an opinion.
My daughter was smiling at 4 weeks old and yes she cried a lot (an awful lot haha), as babies tend to do, but she never once looked as uncomfortable as that baby does in that picture. Maybe that’s because everything I placed her into was made specifically for babies, hence had support for her. I never once put her on or into any kind of foodstuff.
So we don’t know the circumstances in which parents (or whoever it was who did this) decided to treat this baby in this way, so what? All we are given is the picture and therefore we will judge accordingly.
The baby is clearly weeks old, it isn’t able to hold it’s head up yet, so tying a pumpkin lid to it’s head let alone shoving it into a pumpkin and making it sit up when it can’t is so wrong. She will probably be lucky if the baby doesn’t have head or neck problems and also that the baby wasn’t strangled to death.
I hope “friends” gave Jodi a lot of shit for this. She’s clearly not a very clever person, or a thoughful mother, all she’s given a shit about is putting a “cute” photo on FB. Jodi is a selfish bitch and should be chemically sterilised!
you people have no idea what it’s like to be a parent obviously or you wouldn’t feel that way. i’m sorry you had a terrible experience with your own parents, but sometimes what you people think is appalling really isn’t that bad.
whythefuckdoyouhaveakid.com, granted the majority of the examples on there are bad parents, but playing video games with your kids, is not bad. newborns don’t mind being on your lap while you play. Like I said you don’t know the circumstances.
and you never will. so get a life and quite judging people
“but playing video games with your kids, is not bad. newborns don’t mind being on your lap while you play. Like I said you don’t know the circumstances.

What does any that have to do with the very young baby in the stupid halloween costume? Did I miss something?
oh my god people get over it its cute and I am sure it wore it long enought to take the pic ……….. I think its fricken cute and yes babies Cry ALOT!!!!!! so I am sure its not crying cause its in pain or hate probley has gas get over yourselves people!
i was talking about the website I sited. I guess you did miss something.
it is not cute @blue. the kid is clearly uncomfortable. he/she cannot support their own head. You try sitting in a pumpkin with no control of your head. it’d probably really suck. and to think some one you trusted completely put you in that position. yeah. it sucks
@ Lol & blue this could have been done in a way that was cute and didn’t put the baby in such a dangerous position…get a bigger pumpkin and cut a hole in the front n have the baby curled up in there…at least it’s in a position it’s used to. Sitting up (or down) without any head or neck support is a great big no no and especially not tying the pumpkin to it’s head and if the mother had a few brain cells she would know that…and by the way I am a parent that’s why this pisses me off so much!
people are saying this is mean (Matt) because that is a VERY young baby that can not keep its head up (esp. with a pumpkin top on it) and so there is pressure being put on its neck. The baby is crying because it is feeling unsafe, uncomfortable, and probably is in some pain. That is why it is mean.
GOD, YOU PEOPLE ARE IDIOTS! Spiderman- I like how you are woman-bashing and judging every single women by the comment you posted! You are such a fucking idiot and just because no woman wants to be with you, does NOT give you authority to say these kind of things about women! You are a loser and obviously a sexist, ignorant idiot! You need to get educated and learn a little about diversity and culture. The world would be better off without people like you!
Babies can hold their heads up as early at two weeks old, and this baby is obviously older than that. And since NONE of you actually know how old this baby is, you should all shut your mouths. And you can’t even tell if this baby is crying, just because it’s mouth is open doesn’t mean that it’s crying! Babies cry and make weird faces all the time for no reason! Anyone that has kids should know that, obviously none of you do!
The weather is completely irrelevant, for all you know this picture could have been taken in Hawaii or Florida where the temperature is warm. I doubt that any mother would take her baby outside in a onesie if the weather was cold!
NONE OF YOU PEOPLE KNOW THE COMPLETE SITUATION of this picture so why are you judging this mother!? I’m sure you all are fucking saints and NEVER EVER do ANYTHING wrong or stupid. She obviously cares enough about her child to document events in it’s life. If she didn’t care she wouldn’t of went through the time to carve this pumpkin and take the picture. She’s probably a great mother and all of you are just ignorant assholes. GET A LIFE!
No, I’m not a “female fucking idiot with daddy problems”. But you’re probably a fat virgin, who sits on his desk at his minimum wage job and flips back and forth between Lamebook and cheap porn. Get a life, you fucking losers.
“She obviously cares enough about her child to document events in it’s life. If she didn’t care she wouldn’t of went through the time to carve this pumpkin and take the picture. She’s probably a great mother and all of you are just ignorant assholes. GET A LIFE!”
Aahhh…so by your logic ushouldnotcomment..If you take the time to make your child ultra uncomfortable and document it that makes it ok?? So if I jammed my child into a pumpkin or some other small cavity of something..like your overly tight arse..because I’d taken the time to prepare your arse and i take a photo that means I care about and love my baby?? Yuh-huh?!? IDIOT..you make no sense..
Oh..btw..maybe YOU should think more about not commenting? Because in all your haste to haze other people out about judging other people and telling them THEY’RE the losers for being on this sight (you know, the one you’re currently on..) you yourself are JUDGING people..that’s right..so maybe instead of sitting on your arse on here you should maybe go get educated on proper baby care..and go look after your own child..probably a good idea to start by taking it out of whatever food item you currently have it cutely stuffed into I’d say..
This is so mean! That’s such a tiny little newborn sized baby! When they are that little they can hardly hold their own heads up! Why would you tie a heavy, sticky and stinky pumpkin top to your babies head!?! Then take pictures of it while it’s bawling crying. Obviously that is not a happy baby. How can parents be so cruel for their own weird enjoyment.
Further more if you want your newborn to be dressed up and cute on Halloween, buy it a nice soft little kids pumpkin costume. Why is that so hard?
Anyone who argues that this is ok to do to a small newborn child, would probably be an unfit parent. I mean it wouldn’t even be that big of a deal if the kid was a little older and a little bigger and had the strength to support/hold itself up. Even if maybe it didn’t actually look like it was crying and in pain it wouldn’t be that bad.
For shame on these parents.
You guys are all dumb. Obviously, you don’t know half the terrible stuff you’re parents and relatives did you to when you were a baby. The baby isn’t standing, it’s sitting on the ground. Putting a baby in a pumpkin isn’t going to fucking kill it. Babies are built to bounce and bend, that’s part of how babies are able to survive the first few years. Putting one in fruit isn’t child abuse/endangerment. Thinking it is is paranoia and, IMO, retarded.
OK..so we’ll kick you in the balls then..it’ll make you uncomfortable..but it wont kill you..so thats not abuse?
Babies are not MADE to bounce Jackass. The fact that they are limber doesnt mean you use that for your dumbarse amusement just because you can.. and I’m guessing most of your opinions are the retarded ones. Justifying tying stuff to an infant and stuffing it somewhere its obviously not comfortable because someone else did it to you, is just plain messed up…sounds like the calling card of a child molesterer..”My dad did it to me…so I do it to my kids coz its ok?!” Grow a braincell..
this is SOOOO messed up! that poor baby…who in their right mind would do something like this???? i mean, come on. it’s obvious the baby doesn’t like it. he/she can’t even hold their head up cuz the top of the pumpkin tied to them is too heavy. whoever did this is seriously fucked up….
it looks like it’s face needs, or already has a shitty skin graft. and yeah, why the fuck wouldn’t you buy the costume? this is NO anne geddes shit…i got a guy stompin on my roof but…this offends me more
