A mommy blogger is facing backlash after she proclaimed that cribs are "little baby jail cells," and explained why she prefers not to sleep-train her baby.
The woman has 100,000 followers on TikTok under the name @comingupfern. She posts short videos about parenting and how she is raising her child.
Tech writer Taylor Lorenz spotted one of her videos and re-posted it on Twitter with the caption "With all due respect, wtf."
In the video, she says:
Why I don't use a crib for my five-month-old.
If you look at a typical American nursery, you will notice that it's set up for the parent's benefit — not the child's. All of the artwork is usually up high where babies can't even see it.
