If you're anywhere near Coco Rocha, you'd better keep it to yourself, especially if it has anything to do with the controversial debate that pits bottle-feeding and breastfeeding moms against each other.

Rocha gave her haters a real mouthful on Instagram Monday, after commenters took her to task for bottle-feeding her daughter Ioni, who was born last March.

"Getting a lot of unwanted advice based on my last post. Not that this is anyone's business — I loved breastfeeding Ioni for the first 5 months of her life and then one day my milk went dry," she wrote alongside a photo of her baby girl drinking out of a bottle. "It happens to every mom at different times. She's been on formula for a few weeks now and seems to be doing just fine. In the last 4 weeks she gained another 2 pounds, grew another inch and is in the 90th percentile for her age."

It's definitely a damned if you do, damned if you don't kind of situation when you think about how many stars have been similarly criticized for the opposite reason: sharing pics of breastfeeding their babies.

And for anyone else who feels the need to weigh in on Rocha's parenting decisions, she has a stern warning.

"Anyone who has a negative comment to make on the way I raise my baby will be blocked," she wrote, adding, "This is not a democracy, everyone doesn't get a say."

Way to go, Coco!
