This photo was recently uploaded to Beyonce’s official Tumblr account and we gotta say, keeping hair protected never looked so good, lol. Have you rocked a turban while chilling pool or jacuzzi side?

  1. Look, not everyone that has a child is a mother or acts like one (*cough* Draya *cough*) and even though I’m neutral to Beyonce, she does seem like a great mom. I guess Blue Ivy goes on the road with her…I’d do the same thing in her case.

  2. Children should not be in hot tubs. Period. Especially one that can not talk or tell you when they are feeling too warm. It’s extremely dangerous and while I know she was not intentionally putting her daughter in harms way it is not a smart choice on Beyonce’s part. She’s little, her body can easily over heat.

    • Actually, babies and toddlers can withstand warmer/cooler temperatures than most people think. Even more so than adults in many cases. Also, if temperatures rose too hot for little Blue, she would most likely do what every small child who can’t talk would — that is, cry.

      • As the former aquatic director for a well known community center I respectfully disagree. Her tiny body gets warmer MUCH faster than an adults. You can test this out yourself by simply allowing a baby to rest against your chest and sleep for a while (and they don’t wake up crying, they simply play there warm). They get very warm and that is under normal conditions. We would not allow children under the age of 16 in our hot tubs (that age mostly because they play and no one wants a child in there that plays), but also a young child’s heart beats faster, moves blood more quickly and therefore heats up quicker. I know she’s Beyonce and therefore can do no wrong and people will defend any decision she makes, and I’m ready for the thumbs down that I will receive for disagreeing (and being correct) but children should not be in hot tubs. It’s just common sense.

  3. If you read the following articles you will see that about 1/5 of the deaths that occur are drownings, another percentage are because of drains and being sucked under and then temperature is a major concern the rest of the time.

    “High temperatures can cause drowsiness, which can lead to unconsciousness… Additionally, increased body temperatures can lead to heat stroke and possible death.”

    An unconscious baby is not a crying one that is for sure.

  4. Cute turban, bad parenting. Babies should not be in hot tubs. Numerous controlled studies have implicated the harmful effects of prolonged exposure to high heat. Unfortunately while celebrities can just hire a style consultant,cognitive reasoning is something you have to do all by yourself.

  5. Cute photo. And to the folks with the “bad parenting” comments. Why does she have to be a “bad parent” for apparently not knowing something? I don’t know Beyonce–she may be a great or bad mother, neither I nor you know that. But she obviously doesn’t know about the risk–I certainly never received this very specific warning from a pediatrician. The cracks about “cognitive reasoning” and “common sense.” …really? Everyone just automatically knows the ins-ands-outs about hot tubs? Sigh. Just because you know it as an AQUATICS DIRECTOR doesn’t mean we all know it. To many people, a hot tub is just a bubbly bath tub. They don’t know how hot it is because they don’t carry thermometers around, and they don’t know how babies feel, because they don’t remember what it was like to be a baby.

    You can certainly dispense information without reigning judgment down. Which some of you did (thank you). But some of you are just being loud-mouthed ***. There is no shame in ignorance. Unless someone is standing in front of you spouting nonsense about common sense and cognitive reasoning. That’s elitist bull. (‘Beyonce is stupid because she doesn’t know what I know.’ Well–she’s been an entertainer since she was a young teen. I’m not even a fan, but even I know she doesn’t get paid to be a specialist in infant biology. I don’t think she’s stupid, but really…there’s a whole lot she probably doesn’t know. And there’s probably a whole lot you don’t know about her world.)

    • You don’t have to be an aquatics director to know something isn’t right. It’s called instincts. I have taken a hot bath on many occasion that’s made me feel nausea . The water was not hot enough to burn my skin but somehow hot enough to make me feel sick. I’m quite sure people can understand a hot bath in a bathroom can feel like a sauna.

    • If you read my comment, you will see that I never called her stupid. If you read through my comments you will see that I was actually pretty polite about what I said. I never said she was a bad parent, I never claimed to be all knowing (just to be correct in this instance, which is different), I never once said she was a bad parent. If you go back and read you will see this comment, “It’s extremely dangerous and while I know she was not intentionally putting her daughter in harms way…” I even said that I knew she was not intentionally doing it. You took my comments and started drama where there really is none. I have no ill will whatsoever towards Beyonce or her parenting and for you to say that I claimed she was “stupid” and the other nonsensical ways your are trying to interpret my comments is pretty rude.

  6. Did you guys ever stop to realize she IS concerned about her baby? She has enough money to have people regulate the temperature of the water just for her baby. Be critical about something worth being critical over.

    @bliss & @ kiki take all that energy and use it toward the Zimmerman case. We need to make sure he doesn’ t walk scot-free like in 1940?s ( when wearing a scarf was banging, anywhoo)
    And what about using some of the passion to help these lost kids of the future. . If you do, good because that’s where your wisdom will truly make a difference. After all this is a blog. So unfortunately anything goes.
