“I would love to hear more about your breast-feeding journey,” one user commented on a sweet photo of Tori and her baby girl. “I am pregnant with my second baby and breast-feeding was such a struggle with my first!” In response, the 28-year-old sweetly replied, “Ah, the second time has been so much easier for me. Your body just knows,” she added, recalling nursing with son Jackson. “And you have so much more knowledge after having done it. I’ve really just trusted Lilah girl and our doctors. As long as she’s healthy, I’m good.”
In the post, the reality star — who shares Jackson, nearly 3, and Lilah, 5 months, with husband Zach Roloff — acknowledged she feels “lucky” amid the coronavirus pandemic. “Today I was walking around the farm and stopped to feed Lilah girl in the gazebo where Zach and I got married. Wow. It was in that moment I realized how blessed I am,” she wrote. “In these crazy times of uncertainty, it’s really made me slow down and appreciate every moment of every day. Our family is so lucky to be able to get outside and get exercise, and we realize this isn’t a luxury afforded to everyone.”
After hearing the March 31 episode of their “Behind the Scenes” podcast, one person fumed, “I understand you don’t understand what the majority of us are dealing with. You are wealthy. You have the farm to go to,” the listener wrote. “I am low-income. Yet needed. I put my family at risk every day to bring people food and supplies. My husband just was laid off, and our kids are home, so if he somehow gets another job, I have to quit mine. How are you qualified to tell me not to complain? Or be angry? Or frustrated?” They added that the couple lives in a “bubble” the majority of people have “no access to.”
We’re just happy to hear breast-feeding is one less thing to worry about, no matter how “blessed” the TLC babe feels.
