Not here for the haters. Bekah Martinez fired back after a “impolite” Instagram giant slammed her for not putting her 23- month-old child, Ruth, on a “proper sleep schedule.”
The Bachelor alum, 25, exposed via social networks on Monday, January 4, that she had actually enrolled in her last semester at the University of California Irvine after “a slow, tough eight-year journey” to getting her degree. She at first went to the college in 2013 to pursue a Bachelor’s of Arts, however ultimately needed to “hit the refresh button” and alter her path.
While going over the rigorous schedule she’s balancing now that she’s back at school, Martinez stated in an Instagram Story that “neither of the babies are sleeping through the night today.” The “Chatty Broads” podcast host shares Ruth and 6-month-old kid Franklin with her sweetheart, Grayston Leonard The former truth star credited her lack of sleep to “continuously overextending” herself, one commenter declared it was due to bad parenting.
[Ruth] must not be waking up twice a night.
The California local was quick to clap back, advising her followers that unwanted messages about her parenting are “not useful.”
” I understand this is well-intentioned however it’s impolite and unprompted,” Martinez wrote. “She DOES have a sleep schedule we developed well over a year ago however she’s been awakening a lot over the past couple [of] months due to the fact that we have a small house and she hears Frank crying while we’re attempting to get HIM on a sleep schedule (although we have literally 4 sound devices).”
The former ABC star concluded: “Checking out messages like this simply makes me feel more disappointed. It’s not handy.”
Martinez is no stranger to dealing with mom-shaming head-on, especially when it comes to her option to continue nursing both her infants and share breast-feeding selfies. While speaking with Us Weekly exclusively in December, the Bachelor Nation member confessed that it “actually bothers” her to receive those types of unfavorable remarks.
” It makes me upset that there are individuals out there that believe it’s OK to tell people what to do with their bodies or how to parent,” she explained at the time. “If kids are safe and enjoyed and looked after, I do not think it’s truly your company to comment on how individuals are doing their journey.”
