'Let her grow up' Fans slam Katie Price over photo of Bunny wearing nappy and drinking from bottle

But others were quick to defend the mum-of-five...

Katie Price has sparked controversy on social media once again, as fans criticised her for posting a photo of Bunny still wearing a nappy and drinking from a bottle.

The mum-of-five regularly posts snaps of her brood on Instagram, but often gets criticism from fans over her parenting choices.

The latest picture to be scrutinised was a snap of two-year-old Bunny, where she can be seen wearing a nappy and holding a bottle while waiting for Katie at the hairdressers.

Katie, who's known for being very open about her family life on social media, captioned the photo: 'Cheeky bunny waiting for me in the hairdressers.'

Some fans were quick to criticise the fact that the toddler is still in nappies, saying she's too old for them and also too old to be drinking from a bottle.

'A nappy and a bottle. C'mon Kate let her grow up', one person commented, while another wrote 'Isn't she a bit old for a nappy and bottle?'

But while some users slammed Katie over the picture, others rushed to defend her parenting and even shared their own personal stories of potty training their children, pointing out how different kids can be.

'Why do other people find it necessary to criticise other people's parenting???', one fan said.

Another wrote: 'Oh God the nappy and bottle police are out in full today Katie. Come on, she's two. My daughter was out of nappies at two, yet my son was out of nappies at almost three.

'My point being: All kids are different and go at different paces so it's not about allowing them to grow up, it's about the kids being ready.'

A third user commented to say children develop at different rates: 'My son potty trained the same week as his third birthday and I was constantly stressing that he hadn't done it before, but when he did, he did it straight away. Kids develop at different rates and do things at different ages.'

This is not the first time fans have expressed their opinions over Katie's parenting choices. The mum recently faced backlash over a picture of Bunny and three-year-old Jett drinking juice from bottles, which fans said could be very harmful for children's teeth.
