Gisele Bundchen & Her Naked Baby Make A Splash! Do You Let Your Kids Run Around Naked?

Although some people think it’s adorable to see a nude baby on the beach, others find it a little inappropriate. HollyBaby.com’s Leigh Blickley and Ian Garland duke it out — is it OK or not OK?

So HollyMoms, here’s the thing: Supermodel Gisele Bundchen took her almost 2-year-old son Benjamin (his daddy is Tom Brady) to a beach in Costa Rica, where the tiny tot splashed and froliced around in his birthday suit. Ian thinks this is perfectly normal, while Leigh thinks it’s a bit off-putting. Who do YOU agree with?

Leigh Says:

Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with a naked baby — I actually find them extremely cute — but something about this Gisele situation bothers me. Granted, I am not a mom, nor do I know what it’s like to change a soggy, sandy and soaked beach diaper, but in my eyes, baby Ben should be wearing some swim trunks.

One time, I was at the beach, and a woman let her two kids, around the ages of 2 and 5, run around completely naked for most of the day. While at first I found it adorable, after about two hours, I was getting a little sick of seeing baby body parts running back and forth, up and down, and all around me on the beach. Eventually the kids have to put on some clothes, right?

With Gisele, you’d think she’d notice paparazzi snapping shots of her nude baby boy and be a little bothered by it, but nope. Those pictures are out in the open now — and so is Benjamin‘s wee-little parts.

Ian Says:

What’s wrong with this photo? Nothing at all, in my eyes. In fact, when my baby son is old enough to run around on a beach (it won’t be long), I’ll be encouraging him to let it all hang out.

I should probably mention I am from Europe, where items of clothing are considered an optional extra on the beach. But I can’t see how anyone could take issue with little Benjamin frolicking au naturel on a deserted beach.

There’s a practical reason why naked trumps trunks too. Gisele would have needed to switch out Ben’s regular diaper for a waterproof swimming diaper and wrestle a pair of shorts on a wriggly toddler, who just wants to run around and explore. All without getting scratchy sand trapped in his private parts.

Naked is cleaner, easier, and frankly, the way God intended. I doubt Gisele had any idea she and Ben were being watched — even by the paparazzo who was probably half a mile away shooting them through a very long lens.

So HollyMoms, do you find it weird or completely fine?

Oh boy. Americans (well, not all but most of them) are the only human beings on the planet that have a problem with naked babys/kids on the beach. Getting uncomfortable if there are naked babys around says a lot about a distorted body-image…..

Whether it’s a celebrity baby or not, there are people out there that are attracted to children and babies, and children are sexualized at such an early age, so unless you’re in your pool at home and are positive the papparazzi can’t see you, cover them kids up! And I bet you will find these pics on lots of pedophile’s computers. Sad but true.

I completely agree. At your own home where you are sure no perverts can see, sure that’s fine. But too many sickos out there to take any chances in public.

well, it’s definetely unhealthy for kids to sit on the beach sand naked – it may cause urological problems.

All I see here is her AMAZING body! I would kill for abs like that!!! While Im sure it’s totally innocent that he’s naked, we are living in a day and age where technology is huge, and there are just too many pervs out there. As a celebrity, I would probably have covered him up. But he is totally adorable this way. I would do this in a more private area.
