Coco Rocha calls out haters over her breastfeeding controversy
Got an opinion about parenting?
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!
