Jessa Duggar: Slammed For Literally Everything She Does Involving Kids

by at . Comments

Jessa Duggar cannot catch a break.

Sure, she's gone out of her way to court criticism in the past, and some of the pushback she's gotten on certain topics has been warranted.

Yet fans seem intent on laying into her for every single thing she does, including many parenting choices that seem harmless or mundane.

Jessa and Ben Seewald Date Night

One would think given the eventful, sometimes controversial nature of Joy-Anna and Jill’s lives, Jessa would be free of scrutiny lately.

With young sons Spurgeon and Henry, and a devoted husband in Ben Seewald, she's pretty much focused on her perfect little family.

The moments she shares on Instagram and Facebook are shredded almost immediately, however, by armchair parents shaming her.

Whether it's Spurgeon drinking out of bottles at an age deemed too old, or not speaking in a video, the Seewalds live under a microscope. 

When you put your life out there the way she does, looking for attention, some of this is to be expected. On the flip side ... come ON, people.

Latest, (not) greatest case in point?

Henry Seewald Strapped In

The 24-year-old mom of two posted the image above, and was quickly filleted by fans (term used loosely) for carrying Henry the wrong way.

She had strapped him to her chest, with the baby facing out, which a few dozen Parent of the Year winners say is bad for hip development.

“It’s so bad for their hips,” a fan said.

“I’ve worn my LB since he was born but they need support right to under their knees otherwise [their] legs hang and it pulls on their hips."

"This can cause hip dysphasia," the Instagram follower told the Counting On star. "Just turn him around […] or have him on your back.”

Duggar fans weren't done there, getting after her again after she posted a photo of the family engaging in “cruel” treatment of animals.

Jessa, Horse

Taking Spurge to ride ponies after she realized that he was obsessed with horses, Jessa probably thought this was a cute thing to share.

Her fans did not see it that way.

“This practice is incredibly cruel,” one follower commented. “Those poor things are lined up very unnaturally and cannot move."

"They are forced to walk in circles in the heat all day without care, and have children placed on their backs over and over again."

"Just an hour of riding a day can cause permanent back problems for horses," another fan wrote, upset over the above image.

Granted, this was more about the concept of pony rides in a particular setting than about Jessa herself, but can the girl live?

Spurgeon Seewald with Two Bottles

Fortunately, Jessa has some fans in her corner.

Her parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, who frequently babysit Spurgeon and Henry, often post about the experience, and pridefully.

Comb through her comments and you'll see some praise here and there too, or at least acknowledgement that parenting is hard.

“Jessa is such an amazing mother! Look how happy, healthy, and content those babies are,” a fan wrote underneath the picture.

“Also look how clean, haha! We all know how hard it is to keep a perfectly clean house with small babies around!” said another.

What's your take: Does Jessa Duggar get too hard of a time just because of her last name, or are her followers' gripes legit?
