Another day, another controversy for Audrey and Jeremy Roloff! The Little People, Big World couple can't seem to catch a break these days. Whether it's being mommy-shamed for baby wipes or slammed for wearing ripped jeans to a doctor's appointment — yes, seriously — the reality stars have certainly been taking an online beating. Most recently, after snapping a seemingly innocent photo of their newborn daughter, Ember, the conversation turned to vaccines. Watch the video below for more details!
The reality star mana hasn't had the easiest pregnancy. Since giving birth to baby Embs on Sept. 10, she was diagnosed with mastitis — a common illness that affects women who choose to breastfeed their babies.
According to WebMD, mastitis is defined as inflammation of the breast that is caused by an infection after bacteria enters the breast through the nipple via a cracked or sore nipple. Mastitis can also be caused by anemia, waiting too long in between breastfeeding sessions, or failing to empty the breast completely of milk. It can happen at any time while a mother breastfeeds, but it's most likely to start between the first two or three weeks of birth to six months. It usually affects only one breast that can look red or appear warm to the touch, and the symptoms can include fever, chills, and body aches.
To make matters worse, the couple recently had to rip out their newly-renovated kitchen and announced that their cat, Pine, was sick. After revealing that the cat fell ill by eating toxic plants, Auj reached out for advice and recommendations, while also documenting her trips to the vet with the little guy. "Thank you everyone for your concern and suggestions relating to Pine," she wrote in an Instagram Story. "We think she ate some toxic plants. We’re keeping an eye on her but she seems to be doing a little better today." We're sure their luck is going to turn around soon!
