Jed Duggar slammed for allowing son Truett, 2 months, to use ‘dangerous’ toy after backlash for ‘poor’ parenting choices

JED Duggar was hacked by fans for allowing his two-month-old son, Truett, near a “dangerous” toy.

This criticism comes after the Counting On star suffered a setback for “poor” parenting choices in the past.

Jed posted a photo of his son, Truett, on Instagram.

Truett was dressed in khaki pants, a white button-down shirt with a blue design on it, and white and pink shoes.

In the three photos, the two-month-old was sitting on the grass, standing with the help of his parents and making a funny face while lying in his father’s arms.

Jed kept on his back all the time as the baby was too young to keep himself upright.

He captioned the post: “It’s always a happy Sunday with this guy
# 2 months #big boy. ”

While Jed’s followers on Instagram left positive comments like “Oh my goodness” and “Look how beautiful”, Reddit users were worried about something else.

Truett had a pacifier with a clip on his shirt.

Fans noticed that the object was recalled and slapped Jed for his bad parenting move.

The pacifier is blue with beige beads and a silver clip.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, a product similar to Truett’s was recalled and considered a “choking hazard”.

The website states that the “D-ring on the pacifier can break, allowing beads to come loose.”

However, the item was recalled in 2015, long before Truett was born, so the parents may not know about it.

Reddit users went to the platform to comment on the “dangerous” item.

One pointed out that the pacifier had been recalled.

“That pacifier clip has been recalled as the string could break and the child could choke on the individual beads. So I see them following right along with the Duggar safety standards!” said the user.

Another platform user joked about the pacifier and the way his parents dressed him.

“Clasped his pacifier like a middle school geography teacher’s lanyard,” joked the fan.


Jed and Katey have been slapped in the past for their “bad parenting” moves.

The couple posted a video on their Youtube channel last month.

The video documented their camping trip and their excitement at trying out the vehicle with their newborn baby.

While meeting with the Duggars for a cooking event, Jed and Katey showed the baby in its beautiful basket to the family.

At one point, however, the baby basket was placed directly under the grid.

Fans were furious about the performance and posted a screenshot of the YouTube video on a forum.

One wondered, “You guys, why are they putting this baby under a grid?”

A second asked, “They could not have found the child anywhere else?”

Another fan introduced: “The baby is also almost touching / is dangerously close to the propane tank. Jed is also leaning over the baby to reach the grid. Anyone who was around them that day clearly has a lack of healthy mind not to correct where the baby is. “


Earlier this month, the couple made another parenting mistake as they packed their car with numerous items around Truett.

The family was on a road trip and documented it on their Youtube channel.

Katey pointed her finger at the back seat, where their son Truett was strapped into his baby seat.

Jed’s wife also admitted that there was “very good” in the back.

The back of the vehicle included luggage and another seat for the baby, who was sitting behind Katey’s head.

Counting On fans jumped to the comments section after noticing that the back seat was covered from top to bottom with random items.

Followers have speculated that an object could fall and possibly hit the baby.

“I just wonder if they even think about child safety, or they know, and just do not care,” one critic wondered.

“Baby True is one moment away from a serious accident,” another follower remarked.

A third concluded with, “Child safety! Child safety! Come on!”


The former TV stars have announced that they are expecting their first baby together in September 2021.

On May 2, Truett Oliver was born at 18:34, weighing 8lbs 5oz.

Jed and Katey announced on their Instagram that he had arrived in the world with a photo of them and the baby.

“He’s here! We love you so much, darling True!” they captioned the post at the time.

The couple also revealed the meaning behind the unusual nickname and wrote: “Truett: ‘warrior for Christ. Oliver:’ peace ‘.”

Truett is the couple’s first child together.
