However, the 23-year-old new mom is trained in midwifery and has helped raise her many younger siblings.

Commenters pointed out that the sling should be raised “about a foot” because the child should be “laying across her chest, not her waist.”

Another fan pointed out that the way she is holding Israel horizontally could be dangerous for Jill, too, because she had a Cesarean section to deliver her baby earlier this month.

As RadarOnline pointed out, Israel is still safe and sound and looks like Jill may need to re-read the chapter about sling usage in her midwifery studies!
