Britney Spears Almost Drops Her Baby

Britney Spears almost drops her baby Sean Preston, while trying to make her way past the media. Can't say I really care about this but I know people are looking for it:

Britney Spears Stumbles, Nearly Drops Baby

Britney Spears stumbled outside a Manhattan hotel, nearly dropping her 8-month-old son and further fueling the ever-growing media scrutiny of her parenting skills.

In photos splashed across the front page and inside the New York Post on Friday, the 24-year-old pop star is shown exiting The Ritz-Carlton hotel with Sean Preston in one hand and a glass in the other.

As her bodyguards walked Spears to her car, she stumbled — her long pants apparently getting tangled in her open-toed shoes — and bent low as Sean Preston's head flung backward, knocking off his orange hat.

Spears, though, was able to keep her balance and hold on to her son, with help from a bodyguard, who reacted quickly.

A call to Spears' publicist Friday seeking comment was not immediately returned.

The baby bobble was the latest public incident involving the safety of Spears' child. Earlier this week, she was photographed driving with Sean Preston in a car seat facing forward rather than facing backward, which some safety regulations say is best.

Spears, who recently announced that she's pregnant with her second child, was visited by a sheriff's deputy at her home in Malibu, Calif., last month after Sean Preston slipped from his nanny's arms as she was lifting him from a high chair and something in the chair snapped.

In February, authorities visited Spears' home after photos showed the singer in a car with her son in her lap, instead of being strapped to a car seat in the back seat. She first blamed pursuits by the paparazzi, but later said it was a "mistake."

Did she really say "this is why I need a gun"?

Yeah, that's a great idea -- I want her dropping a loaded gun next.

Come on!! As a mother, I can absolutely say a stumble just like this has happened to me.....leave the poor girl alone. She obviously gets stressed around photographers and when your pregnant, losing your balance is very easy to do!!!

Shut the hell up, this is soo stupid! like seriously, everyone is demeaning Britney Spears but accidents happen. The blame for the Nanny's accident is being placed on Britney when she cant watch over her child 24/7. Dont act like yall are perfect seeing how most of yall would already have your children in day care, where they are in more danger. She is an average human being, so it raising her first child will bring ups and downs, lay off!

Uh.. yeah. All you people saying "This stuff happens all the time"? She's fucking wasted. She has no business carrying her son around when she's drunk and in high heels. Oh, and for all you little gung-ho sympathetic moms out there: She's also knocked up again. So in that video, not only was she shitfaced holding ONE baby, she was shitfaced PREGNANT. Ever seen what FAS does to a baby?

Leave her alone people. If she wasn't a celebrity no one would have cared. Everyone makes mistakes.

All mothers in my opinion make mistakes, I think we've all stumbled. It wasn't her "mistake" that bothered me. It's that they KEEP happening. SHe's so accident prone. Again, out of her control. BUT she stabilized her drink before the kid. She's obviously a ditz and really has no parenting skills. As far as the gun goes. I saw the video and she was referring to being able to get through a crowd without having to squeeze through people. Regardless. She's still a ditz.

so she slipped? it's not like she did that on purpose, it's probably water that's in the stupid glass. i was walking in my bedroom holding my four month old and slipped on a blanket, does this make me a bad mom?

oh my god to the people saying forgot about it, it was an accident, well yes maybe but this isnt the only thing she as done. She was driving with her kid in her lap come on people and there other things she as done too. she keeps putting her kid in danger she is a reckless mom and needs to go to parenting classes if she cant get her act together. If she wasnt a celebrity she would have gotten in trouble for putting her kid in danger (im not talking about this but when she put her kid in the car in her lap and putting the car seat in the wrong dirction)the Children's Services need to do something before she hurts her kid. they need to have check ups with her and at least make her take a parenting class because it like she needs them. I know teenagers who are better parents.

I can personally say i have dropped my kid more than one time...and she is just fine. making a little mistake here and there when u r learning how to be a good parent is perfectly normal. and whoever the dumbass was who said she dropped her child in the first place needs to get laid and find themself a life!
