AceShowbiz - Kenya Moore is joining the list of celebrities being mom-shamed for showing off her affection to her baby. On Sunday, December 16, the cast member of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" posted on Instagram a photo of herself nearly kissing her 6-month-old daughter, and faultfinders were quick to point their fingers at her.
One follower scolded the 47-year-old TV personality, "Girl, stop kissing that baby in the Mouth. You know you done had d**ks dated back from the 90's on the mouth... Smh." Another Instagram user sounded off similar complaint that read, "Stop kissing a baby in the mouth given a baby grown folks at germs. That’s where the baby gets thrush in the mouth And nowadays it can get bad and deadly."
While many criticized the former Miss USA for kissing her baby on the mouth, one in particular found fault at how she held her infant child. "Kenya dont hold her underneath her armpits," the fan wrote in the comment section. "She's just a bundle of soft tissue and can become QUITE sore from all the manipulation of being constantly picked up and held/dangled in the air by her armpits."
In the picture Kenya uploaded on her social media account, the "Waiting To Exhale" actress was captured holding up her daughter in the air to kiss her. Along with it, she wrote, "May God bless you and may all your heart's desires come true. I never gave up, kept praying and believing in God's plan for my life. Stay prayerful He has your back."
Kenya wasn't the only celebrity mother criticized online. In early December, Gabrielle Union was also put in the same situation. After she posted a video of her kissing baby Kaavia on her lips multiple times, her Instagram account was flooded with people telling her that she shouldn't have done that.

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.
The wife of Dwyane Wade didn’t stay quiet though. She fired back with a video of Kaavia being checked by a doctor. "Here's a guide for happily enjoying my posts of our family," she wrote in the caption. "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."
