Do not come for Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi! The reality star and mother of three who welcomed her third child, son Angelo just under two months ago, has dealt with her fair share of mom-shaming online. She's been criticized for having her children in strollers at Disney and for how she combs her daughter's hair, and now the sanctimommies are coming for her after she posted a recent picture showing the realities of life with two young children and a newborn. The "Jersey Shore" star isn't having it though and letting the haters know exactly what she thinks of them.
Polizzi posted a picture of herself enjoying a much-needed glass of red wine while simultaneously feeding her newborn son a bottle that she has expertly balanced on her cheek. Captioning the picture, "What’s mom life like with 2 kids and a newborn? THIS", before adding in the hashtags "#MomJuice #ImAGoodMomISwear," the picture was applauded by many, but also criticized by those who feel that enjoying a glass of red wine is a no-no if you're a mother.
Friends of the reality star and fellow celeb moms could totally relate to the picture. Co-star Jenni "JWoww" Farley commented with a series of praise hands emojis," while country singer Jessie James Decker commented, "Im feelin this one." Courtney Lopez, who recently welcomed her third child with husband Mario Lopez, wrote, "Get it," while Deena Cortese's husband Chris Buckner praised Polizzi's multi-tasking skills writing, "pure talent." Of course, not everyone was so in awe of Polizzi's ability to enjoy a glass of wine while feeding her son and made their opinions known.
"This is the most ignorant picture I've ever come across!!! Your not getting the mom of the year award!!!" wrote one critic, while another wrote, "You not suppose to drink alcohol if you breastfeeding your baby." The mother of three took exception to anyone telling her how to live her life and fired back in the comments. "You’re not a mom," the MTV star replied. "I allow myself to have a few glasses once a week to stay sane with 3 kids. I do what’s necessary to clean my milk for my baby. Let a mawma live and keep being 17."
Polizzi is not afraid to stand up to the mom shamers who seem to come at her for anything she posts. Four days after welcoming son Angelo, the reality star posted that she was eager to get back to working out, a sentiment that was met with a lot of criticism online from those who assumed that she should simply be content to stay home with her newborn. Polizzi once again clapped back at her haters, writing; "Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but don’t attack me for wanting to become strong and fit again after my pregnancy. My boobs are leaking and pulsating, my butthole is sore and my cramps are unbearable & I’m still wearing a diaper the size of Texas. Postpartum is a bitch. But I’m allowed to look on the bright side of things and want to get back into shape. Don’t punish me for that."

4 days postpartum & body is feeling good besides the fact that my cramps still feel like contractions! Still healing but can’t wait to jump back into the gym hardcore this summer! Time to be a fit mawma again for my nuggets 💪🏽 EDIT: Receiving backlash because I can’t wait to get in the gym and get fit again? Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but don’t attack me for wanting to become strong and fit again after my pregnancy. My boobs are leaking and pulsating, my butthole is sore and my cramps are unbearable & I’m still wearing a diaper the size of Texas. Postpartum is a bitch. But I’m allowed to look on the bright side of things and want to get back into shape. Don’t punish me for that. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR ADVICE ON HOW TO DEAL WITH RECOVERY! I’m still keeping my diaper on for weeks tho.
Sounds like Snooki is just fine living her life the way she chooses and if you don't like it you can simply unfollow her.
