Gabrielle Union is clapping back against the mommy-shamers who criticized her for kissing her newborn daughter Kaavia James. On Thursday (Dec. 6), the new mom posted a video showing herself kissing her baby on the lips. While many of Union's followers found the video sweet, there were others who decided to leave negative comments.
"Ahhhh didn’t anyone tell you shouldn’t kiss a baby in the mouth. Even your own. She’s beautiful though," one fan wrote. "She’s gorgeous, but no kissing babies on the mouth," another chimed in.
One user even claimed they could tell there was something wrong with Baby Kaavia's breathing from the video, which seems like a bit of a stretch. "She is breathing very very hard. The pull is showing. Signs we are taught by a doctor to look for asthmatic children. Please take a look at this @gabunion. Adorable just be safe."
Well, Union isn't having any of it. She was quick to clap back and tell all the armchair experts in her comments that she knows what she's doing. "Hey guys I appreciate all the concern about kisses on the mouth and labored breathing, I am blessed enough to have a nurse here with us while at work," she wrote. "Kaav is healthy and I don’t even touch her without washing and sanitizing myself and everything and everyone that comes into contact with her."
"No visits with sick folk and even all of Oprah’s crew got whooping cough vaccinations and current on all vaccinations to be in our home," she continued, referencing her upcoming interview with the iconic TV host. "If you think I waited this long and went thru [sic] all this to put my baby in harm’s way… you got another thing coming,"
Let's let Gabrielle Union enjoy this amazing time in her life without criticizing her every move as a new mom. If not, you know she'll be coming for you.
