Jill Duggar Gets Fans' Support for Feeding Her Dog Breast Milk and Posts a Reply to Critics
Jill Duggar felt no shame in feeding her breast milk to her dog and did not hold back from letting her critics know that. Many of her fans were solidly behind her and showed their support with multiple comments.
On Saturday, "19 Kids and Counting" alum Jill Duggar shared a picture of her dog Fenna licking milk from a green bowl. In the post's caption, she made a surprising revelation about her breast milk, writing:
"🍼 I've had my last teeny bottle of breast milk in the freezer for nearly a couple years now (both my boys stopped breastfeeding around 2 years old and Sam is almost 4 now!)."
Jill admitted that the bottle of breast milk was probably a freezer-burnt nutritionless substance now, but her youngest son, Samuel, 3, asked to try it recently. She added that the milk did not look bad after she thawed it, so she let him try it. She also wrote:
"As expected, he didn't like it after trying a couple sips. Needless to say, now all 3 of my children have now had breast milk 🙊 🐾."
Jill asked other moms if any of them felt sentimental about "liquid gold," a reference for breast milk. She also added that the person who coined the phrase "no use crying over spilled milk" certainly never pumped.
Being aware that some critics would bash her for feeding her dog breast milk, Jill revealed that Fenna is fine. She explained that she would never have fed the milk to the pup if she thought it would make her sick and advised her critics to "chill" with their criticisms.
Jill's recent revelation is a glimpse of how she continues to raise her kids and household differently.
Many of Jill's followers jumped to her defense in the post's comment section. One of them said her action was awesome and wondered why people always complain about anything.
Another of Jill's followers agreed that breast milk is liquid gold and way too hard to throw away, and only a mother will understand the feeling.
One fan joked that Fenna's immune system would be stronger after enjoying the breast milk. Another fan joked Jill killed two birds with one stone as she cleaned out her freezer and fed her dog.
Another person advised Jill to do what is best for herself and her family and not pay attention to naysayers. Other fans expressed love for Jill and commended her for doing what she did.
Jill's recent revelation is a glimpse of how she continues to raise her kids and household differently from how her parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, brought her up.
In March, she revealed that she allows her two sons, Israel, 5, and Samuel, to watch television and not get too hung up on how many hours they watched. Contrastingly, she was not allowed to watch television as a child.
While fans will wait to see if Jill becomes pregnant later on, one certainty is that when she does, she will thrill them with many cute baby bump pictures as she and her sisters, Jessa, Abbie, and more, have done in the past.
