We love how Chrissy Teigen is always sharing her adventures with her kids, Miles and Luna, on social media. But now, something she's shared is getting her some serious backlash. Chrissy's being called out for taking her kid to the dentist. (Really?) And in classic Teigen fashion, she has a message for her critics that's a must-read.

  • It all started when Chrissy innocently shared a video on Instagram of Luna at the dentist for the first time.

    She's sitting on her grandma's lap, brushing a dinosaur's teeth while a hygienist talks to her about dental health. Seems pretty normal and adorable, right?

  • People immediately commented on the photo, telling Chrissy that 3 is too late for a first dental appointment.

    According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, children should go to the dentist when their first tooth erupts and before their first birthday. 

    But it's better to take Luna now than never -- and we don't doubt that Chrissy would've taken her in earlier if there was an issue.

  • Of course, Chrissy had the perfect response for her haters.

    In a reply to what appears to be a now deleted comment, Chrissy wrote, "Was waiting for this. U guys never fail me." 

    She's right. We cannot even count the times that Chrissy has been mom-shamed for what she shares about her kids on social media. This is a sweet, harmless video of Luna hitting a milestone. Do we have to rain on her parade?

  • Fortunately, plenty of people are stepping in to defend her.

    Lots of fans think Chrissy's doing just fine, and we have to agree. No matter what Chrissy Teigen shares of her life, she's always getting hate. Maybe we can just step back and give her some slack on this one?

    She's clearly got it under control!

  • We hope these kinds of comments never keep Chrissy from sharing her kids with her fans.

    Luna and Miles are so adorable and funny. (We love hearing Luna talk about her dreams.) It's been so much fun to watch them grow and to see Chrissy's journey into motherhood.

    We'll keep watching Luna's dental appointments forever!
