Jools Oliver shared a photo of her youngest son River with her 560,000 Instagram followers and it sparked an unwelcome comment she probably wasn’t expecting.
River’s photo showed the three-year-old standing next to an outdoor children’s climbing wall, wearing the softest terrycloth pajamas and sucking his thumb.

The barefoot boy looked adorable and Jules, a mother of five, captioned the photo, “Morning River Rocker Rainbow,” adding a rainbow, sun and heart emoji.
Fans loved the summer pic with over 12,000 likes and comments, saying things like “Rainbow, terry cloth and river – Happy Sunday!” and “Wow, this is the cutest outfit ever. When did he get so big!”
However, a comment asked if River should still be allowed to suck his thumb at his age, which sparked a wave of responses from people defending River.
Jamie Oliver’s mother, Sally, was one of the first to write a message of support for her daughter-in-law, saying, “Jools, that person who was judging thumbsucking isn’t a real person.” if you look at their profile, they should just be a troll, ignore and delete. Either way, Jamie has been sucking his thumb for years and it hasn’t hurt him (and he probably still does when he’s stressed).
Others said, “Ignore Jools, people like that are not worth your time and energy… Be proud of your handsome thumb sucking boy” and “I still suck my thumb and I’m 51. a genius.”
We couldn’t agree more!
