A woman who was pictured carrying her baby in a handbag has sparked outrage online.

Xue Hsueh, 26, placed her nine-month-old child in her bag whilst on a shopping trip. A friend then snapped a photo and posted it on the internet.

One online commentator expressed their disapproval, saying: “Designer babies, the latest accessory that every woman must have.”

Xue has defended herself following the backlash, claiming that she was making a joke about what it would be like if men were responsible for childcare.
