David Beckham Slams The Daily Mail Following Article About Daughter Harper

David Beckham has taken to social media to respond to an article posted by The Daily Mail.

The tabloid newspaper ran a piece on Sunday last titled: Why does Harper, four, still use a dummy? Experts warn David and Victoria Beckham's little girl may end up with 'speech or dental issues' if she continues to use one.

In it, the author suggests that the youngest Beckham is "well beyond the age that most health experts would advise giving a child a dummy".

They go on to suggest that David and Victoria "risked stunting their daughter's speech and were putting her teeth at risk of damage" by letting her use the soother.

On Monday afternoon, father-of-four David responded via Instagram. Sharing a screengrab of the piece, he wrote:

Why do people feel they have the right to criticize a parent about their own children without having any facts ?? Everybody who has children knows that when they aren't feeling well or have a fever you do what comforts them best and most of the time it's a pacifier so those who criticize think twice about what you say about other people's children because actually you have no right to criticize me as a parent ...

Doting dad David frequently uses his Instagram page to share snaps of his adorable family. Harper, age 4, is the footballing star's youngest child with wife Victoria. The couple are also parents to boys Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz.
