Fear not, parenting police! Joy-Anna Duggar took to the comments section on her joint Instagram account to set the record straight. The Counting On star revealed she’s still breastfeeding her six-month-old son, Gideon — whom she shares with her husband, Austin Forsyth — despite prior speculation that she wasn’t.
One polite fan wrote, “The life of a stay-at-home mama. I make a to-do list for the week so every day I know what I need to do. Does Gideon take a bottle now or do you still nurse? Was just curious!” See how Joy-Anna responded in the video above.
Rumors first began swirling earlier this week when the 20-year-old shared a photo of her son drinking from a bottle. One (not-so-polite) person asked on Twitter, “Not breastfeeding already?” Luckily, several other users came to Joy’s defense. “People pump breast milk all the time & give it in a bottle…” someone said, while a second added, “Gives Mama a break and someone else the chance to feed [the] baby.”
In the same thread, Joy also revealed that she and her hubby are back to living in their RV. Just before their wedding in May 2017, Joy and Austin bought a fixer-upper in Arkansas for around $70,000. And while many assumed they’ve been living happily ever after in their single-family abode, she admitted that they’re not.
“Did you guys list your house? I see you are living in the RV again.” asked a fan. Joy quickly responded, saying, “We’ll be posting an update soon! Yes, we are living in a camper, and I love it!”
Hmm… the cramped quarters don’t exactly sound conducive to a newborn, but hey, as long as they’re happy. Right?
