Chrissy Teigen is here to say she knows what's best for her daughter. 

The Cravings: Hungry for More author, who recently posted a few photos of her husband John Legend holding their 2-month-old daughter Esti in a baby carrier, took to the comment section of that very post to stick up for their parenting choices.

One Instagram user wrote under the photo that the pair were not using the carrier "right," per People. This Instagram user also tagged another profile, asking them to give Chrissy and John advice on how to use the carrier. 

"'Right' is how she is comfortable," Chrissy wrote in response to the Instagram user, as seen in a screenshot published by the outlet. "She doesn't like to be high and tight and likes to look around and see her daddy. She is safe and happy."

The baby-carrier photos were taken during John and Chrissy's trip to Venice, Italy with Esti and their eldest kids, Luna, 6, and Miles, 4. Chrissy paired the collection of sweet family photos with a caption where she looked back on her and John's first time in the Italian city years ago.

Chrissy Teigen & John Legend's Cutest Family Moments

"Venezia! John and I first came here in 2007 when we were just a couple of crazy child-free kids!" Chrissy wrote April 8. "It's was the dead of winter, absolutely freezing cold and john fondly remembers my single faux urban outfitters fur hat that adorned me every day and night."


She recalled of their adventures, "We took the water bus everywhere and ran through the alleys, making out like a couple of doofuses in lurve who never would have thought we'd be back with babies of our own! well john probably knew."

Mother & Baby

Chrissy shared this video of herself rocking her and John's youngest daughter, writing, "We always joke that esti is different from Luna and Miles in the way that you really have to do a few extremely specific things with her to get her to calm down or sleep. She likes an aggressive rock where your back has to hit the couch repeatedly, a butt pat, a shh shh sound, a bounce between rocks, her body flat against your chest, one arm up and one arm back and some sort of clothing to grab."

Chrissy added, "Those things all together at once are her recipe for sleep. I think it's because I rode a jerky camel uphill for too long when I was early pregnant."
