A Serious Accusation!
Becoming a mother means getting a lot of unsolicited advice about the best practices, styles, and techniques of motherhood. Considering that Kailyn Lowry is a celebrity mother, it’s easy to imagine that she experiences that times a zillion. She’s just given birth to her third child, Baby Lo, and is going through the basic stages of motherhood all over again. Even though it seems she would be a total expert by now, she’s still getting critiqued for her parenting decisions and difficulties when she opens up about them.
She’s opened up that she’s had some troubles with breastfeeding, and some of her ways of coping are getting some serious side-eyes from her fans and fellow mothers. Now, she’s facing a lot of backlash for her parenting.
Drinking and Nursing?
It’s hard to believe that Baby Lo is coming up on being a month old already! As he continues to grow, Kailyn finds herself rediscovering certain techniques that she had to learn when she was raising Isaac and Lincoln. Since Kailyn’s pregnancy and the birth of Baby Lo got so much attention, her recent mothering techniques are under extra scrutiny.
Kailyn recently shared one of her difficulties with mothering that’s been weighing on her. In a recent tweet, she wrote, “Has anyone else [experienced] their newborn [falling] asleep almost instantly while nursing? It’s every time over here.”
Although this isn’t an uncommon difficulty that mothers have, Kailyn’s tweet received some unfounded backlash and accusations on Twitter. One user, @traumanurse1001, made an accusation out of seemingly nowhere. They wrote, “Maybe that ‘glass’ of wine is causing your precious little innocent baby to fall asleep while nursing, js.”
Another user, @HStrahla, pointed out, “The rule is – good to drive, good to nurse. A glass or even two… of wine does NOTHING to her milk or supply. So bye.” It was a moot point though, since Kailyn defended herself, saying, “I actually didn’t even drink any wine soooo… either way.”
People have mixed opinions about drinking during nursing, but Kailyn’s problems with Baby Lo falling asleep at her breast is not uncommon. What’s more is that it can happen even in the absence of alcohol.
However, it’s not the only thing Kailyn’s doing that she’s facing criticism for. One of the biggest things fans are bringing up is that Baby Lo is nearing a month old, and he still doesn’t have a name! Kail and Chris have said that they want to get to know him before naming him and aims to have him named by the time he’s 30 days old, so she doesn’t have much more time!
Regardless of her parenting, it’s clear that Kailyn is head over heels for her new son. “This is the baby I thought I wasn’t sure if I could have. I know this isn’t an ideal situation but I know everything will be okay. And like I say in my book — with a little bit of hustle and heart, I can and I will survive anything. Having another child is something I am so happy about and I just can’t wait. My boys are so excited, those who love me are so excited, and I hope that everyone can just be happy for me during this time.”
Even though this is her third son, it’s clear Kailyn is still continuing to learn more and more about motherhood, which, for a Teen Mom star, means a lot of fan voices chiming in!
