Amy King knows firsthand that parents can never be too cautious when sharing photos of their little ones online.

The cousin of Josh Duggar and niece of Jim Bob Duggar just posted a picture of her sweet baby boy on Instagram, but the mother of one quickly deleted and reposted the image to make sure her shirtless toddler's torso was covered by a blue heart emoji.

"I posted the unedited version, and then I thought to myself 'Is that too much skin? He's just shirtless,'" King captioned the new shot, which showed 21-month-old Daxton Ryan King wearing swim trunks while sitting upright on a pool floatie.

"And then I thought you never know who is seeing this picture and what they are thinking and now I'm going to be extra careful and protect him!" she added. "I encourage all parents to be very careful on what we post from now on."

The 34-year-old wife of Dillon King told her almost half a million followers that she now has "a new set of eyes" and is "more of aware of how someone can use anything for evil."

"It's the sad truth," she noted, "but something worth sharing for sure."

Amy went on to respond to friends and fans in the comments section, many of whom asked whether her caption was a not-so-subtle dig at her currently embattled cousin, Josh, who was arrested and charged with two counts of receiving and possessing child pornography earlier this year.

"Throwing shade at Josh?" wondered one person, to which Amy replied, "Throwing major shade at anyone who doesn't just see an innocent little boy playing in the pool."

After a long investigation, a raid and the confiscation of several of his devices, Josh was accused of bypassing wife Anna Duggar's anti-porn-monitoring software and downloading/storing child sexual abuse content.

One of the Homeland Security agents involved with the case said Duggar's file was "in the top five of the worst of the worst that I've ever had to examine," adding that one specific file he encountered had been known to include photos of children as young as 18 months old.

And yet, this isn't Josh's first rodeo.

In 2015, the same year he was accused of raping Ashley Johnston – who went by the name Danica Dillon when she was involved in the adult entertainment industry – Duggar made headlines for a 2006 police report that stated he had molested five underage girls – including four of his sisters and a babysitter – when he was a teenager.

TLC canceled the large family's claim to fame, 19 Kids & Counting, following the scandal. The network pulled the plug on the show's spinoff series, Counting On, just last week.

Josh's legal team recently asked the court to push the start date of his criminal trial from today – ironically – to February of 2022, claiming they needed more time to comb through the evidence.

The judge presiding over the case ruled the trial would start in November.
