Coco Rocha Fires Back at Bottle-Feeding Critics: 'This Is Not a Democracy'
By Meredith B. Kile
Model Coco Rocha took to Instagram on Wednesday to fire back at criticism she received after posting a photo of her 6-month-old daughter bottle-feeding.
"Getting a lot of unwanted advice based on my last post," the model wrote on a photo of her adorable baby girl Ioni. "Not that this is anyone's business - I loved breastfeeding Ioni for the first 5 months of her life and then one day my milk went dry. It happens to every mom at different times."
The 27-year-old model, who welcomed her daughter with artist husband James Conran in March, had posted a screenshot on Monday to promote the GoButler service. She was hoping to show followers how easy it was to use the service to order baby formula to her hotel in Hawaii -- instead she got heated backlash from people criticizing her for not breastfeeding her daughter.
"She's been on formula for a few weeks now and seems to be doing just fine," Rocha continued. "In the last 4 weeks she gained another 2 pounds, grew another inch and is in the 90th percentile for her age."
The model concluded her post by shutting down her haters once and for all, saying "Anyone who has a negative comment to make on the way I raise my baby will be blocked. This is not a democracy, everyone doesn't get a say."
