Snooki Got Mom-Shamed For Drinking Wine When She’s Still Breastfeeding Her Son
People on social media tried to mom shame Snooki for drinking some Ron-Ron juice while she’s breastfeeding her 2-month-old son Angelo. Snooki was not interested in being dragged by some internet loserbags who probably never even got into a fist fight at the T-shirt shop or arrested for trying to find a beach, so she clapped back and told them to let a mess live.
According to E! News:
The 31-year-old Jersey Shore star posted on her Instagram page on Saturday a photo of her sipping a glass of red while while holding her third child, almost 2-month-old son Angelo, who is drinking from a bottle of milk that she is momentarily not touching. Snooki had revealed on social media soon after the baby was born that she was breastfeeding.
“‘What’s mom life like with 2 kids and a newborn?’ THIS. #MomJuice #ImAGoodMomISwear,” she wrote.
I mean Snooki’s blood alcohol level is probably permanently at a .06 due to her and Ron’s spiral squad antics. I’m constantly impressed with how much she can drink and not be dead. Or even hung over. And I’m not judging, she seems to be doing just fine by Jersey Shore standards. She hasn’t gotten dragged by a car recently and isn’t currently in prison hanging out with the Fyre Festival organizer.
Her Jersey Shore cast mates praised Snooki’s parenting online, but others had opinions about her drinking while breastfeeding.
“You not suppose to drink alcohol if your breastfeeding your baby,” commented one user, Katie.
“You’re not a mom,” Snooki clapped back. “I allow myself to have a few glasses once a week to stay sane with 3 kids. I do what’s necessary to clean my milk for my baby. Let a mawma live and keep being 17.”
Katie says in her profile that she is 35.
There is some wiggle room with drinking and while breastfeeding, you’re allowed one drink if you space it out between feedings and of course you can always pump and dump. And if people are looking at Snooki’s Instagram page for parenting advice, then we’ve got bigger problems.
According to the Centers For Disease Control And Prevention a baby is not going to be harmed by consuming breast milk from a mother who consumes one drink a day, especially if she waits at least two hours after drinking it to nurse.
However, the organization also states, “Exposure to alcohol above moderate levels through breast milk could be damaging to an infant’s development, growth, and sleep patterns.”
Snooki drinking a glass of wine and making a joke about mom life hardly seems like something we need to grab our pitchforks about. It’s not like she was doing body shots while breastfeeding baby Angelo at Karma club. I mean…even Snooki would agree that the baby should be at least 6 months before she starts combining body shots and breastfeeding.
