Gabrielle Union Under Fire for Kissing Infant Daughter On Mouth

Gabrielle Union Under Fire for Kissing Infant Daughter On Mouth

This is ridiculous! When did a mother kissing her daughter on the lips become a problem with America? People NEED to get a life!

Read on and see why Gabrielle Union is now defending kissing her infant daughter on the mouth… reports Gabrielle Union is officially a “mama bear” but for some reason, she has found herself defending kissing her baby girl.

Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade welcomed baby girl Kaavia James Union Wade via surrogate on November 8, 2018.

Now, a month later happy mommy Gabrielle Union posted a sweet Instagram video kissing her sweet baby girl while the song, “Kissing Game (I Like the Way)” by Hi-Five playing in the background.

Shortly after the post, Gabby followers started commenting on the post how unsafe it is to kiss a newborn baby directly on the lips.

Gabrielle Union politely gathered them with this comment:

Hey, guys, I appreciate all the concern about kisses on the mouth and labored breathing, I am blessed enough to have a nurse here with us while at work. Kaav is healthy and I don’t even touch her without washing and sanitizing myself and everything and everyone that comes in contact with her. No visits with sick folk and even all of Oprah’s crew got whooping cough vaccinations and current on all vaccinations to be in our home. If you think I waited this long and went thru all this to put my baby in harm’s way…you got another thing coming.

Cant stop, won’t stop. ???@kaaviajames ?????? Here’s a guide for happily enjoying my posts of our family. Trust that she is surrounded by medical and child care specialists. Know she is safe and watched closely at all times. Trust that I won’t post anything that puts my child in danger or opens me up to unsolicited online medical or parenting opinions ? @kaaviajames is loved. She will be kissed. She will be loved on by the people that love her. She will be safe. If and when I have questions (as a new mom I have tons) I will not hesitate to ask my online community for help and suggestions. But yall have never known me to hold my tongue so trust that I will ask for help. Sometimes publicly and sometimes privately. Its OK that every parent does things differently to suit their child’s needs. Every solution that works or worked for you may or may not work for me or my family or other folks. And that’s absolutely OK. If someone does things differently or does not take your advise or that advise doesnt pan out the way it did for you, that is NO indication that you are wrong or a bad parent. We all figure out what works for us, our children and our families. We dont all have to match. It’s ok to break from the norm and do what’s healthiest and safest for your child. No one is in your house or your family but YOU. We dont all need to be clones of each other to be doing OK. The goal is for us all to have happy healthy families and that journey looks different for every family. Let’s embrace that. Let’s get comfortable with that. Someone doing something different than us does not make us bad people or bad parents. Breathe and enjoy. There will be no mommy shaming on this page. I rebuke mommy shaming. For those STILLLLL clinging onto your fears about Kaav’s breathing and or whether my sweet kisses harmed my kid…feel free to swipe.
