Chrissy Teigen has had it with the parenting police.

That’s why the Cravings cookbook author, 31, was extra careful before tweeting a photo of 15-month-old Luna in her Orbit Baby car seat on Sunday, July 23.

“So brave of you to post a car seat picture . . . these are sanctimony’s fave thing to criticize on,” wrote one of her more than 6 million followers, to which Teigen replied: “Oh trust me, I looked at that chest plate for 10 minutes before posting!”
