Jessa Duggar Catches Heat for Letting Spurgeon Use a Bottle

Spurgeon Duggar SeewaldIt doesn't matter if you're on team breastfeeding, team bottle, or team do what you have to do to survive -- no mother needs to be shamed for her decisions. And yet, that's exactly what happened to this Duggar mom. (We sadly can't say we're surprised.) The fact that Jessa (Duggar) Seewald received criticism for bottle-feeding Spurgeon is beyond us. This type of nonsense needs to stop and fast.


So-called Duggar fans had no problems expressing their concerns about Spurgeon getting his milk from a bottle.

"He's drinking from a bottle ... no breastfeeding? Duggars breastfeed for YEARS usually," wrote one commenter. "Too old for a bottle," snapped another.

Geez. Can we not just appreciate this photo for what it is? (An adorable shot of a precious 11-month-old.)

Thankfully, many of Jessa's fans had no problem responding to her critics.

"TO ALL YOU BREAST-FEEDING CRITICS, DO YOU KNOW WHAT IS IN THAT BOTTLE????? Because my son gets breast milk in a bottle when I'm not home," one commenter responded.

"I'm a NICU RN ... you can breastfeed while pregnant as long as it's an activity the mom has been doing all along so hormone levels don't surge," mentioned another.

People should really learn to just chill and focus on their own families.

We don't know if Jessa had to run errands and expressed milk for Spurge. We don't know if he decided to self-wean. Heck, we don't know if Jessa struggled behind closed doors to breastfeed -- and assuming she did, wouldn't it be horrible for us to judge her for using a bottle?

This photo is yet another precious reminder of how precious children are. And rather than berate a mother for using a bottle, let's just celebrate life and this family's happiness.
