Another day, another truly perplexing Duggar parenting choice. Jill Duggar took to Instagram on Thursday, Dec. 28, to treat fans to a picture of her five-month-old son Sam’s poopy diaper. And no, we’re not s–tting you.
“That moment when you hear the rumble and you’re like, ‘oh no! Quick! Stand him upright before he…too late,” the Counting On star, 26, captioned a photo of her child laying on his stomach, with a visible splash of doo-doo on the back of his onesie. “#samuelscottdillard #samtheman #blowout.”
Jill — who shares Sam and two-year-old son Israel with husband Derick Dillard — received mixed reactions from fans. While some of the young mom’s followers thought her post was quite comical, others found it downright disgusting. “Aww that is so funny! Hahah my kid does the same exact thing!” one fan wrote, while another commented, “This is what motherhood really looks like! Lol love it.”
However, those who were not amused by Jill’s post pointed out that this photo is not only gross to look at — but it could one day be seriously embarrassing for poor little Sam. “That’s awful that you would do that to your son. How rude,” one critic wrote. Added another, “He’s just a baby! One day he’ll hate you for posting this. Nasty. And not funny at all.”
Of course, this isn’t the first time Jill has been accused of a major parenting fail. Back in September, she was slammed for using a tortilla to shield Sam’s face from the sun — which she proudly documented on Instagram. “Ummm…a hat probably wold have been a better choice for him not to burn,” one fan remarked at the time, while another sarcastically wrote, “Of course an experienced mother wouldn’t bother with a hat, just put on a tortilla to block the sun.” Check out the controversial tortilla moment in the video below!
