Little People’s Audrey Roloff slammed for giving medical advice to fans about breastfeeding without doctor’s consent
LITTLE People, Big World’s Audrey Roloff was ripped for giving fans medical advice about breastfeeding infections, but not mentioning to see a doctor.
The reality star has been criticized quite a bit lately, mainly for her parenting decisions.
The chaos kicked off after the 29-year-old took to her Instagram Stories to respond to a fan who asked about Mastitis remedies.
Mastitis is an inflammation of breast tissue that can sometimes lead to an infection – it usually occurs during early stages of breastfeeding.
The Little People, Big World star shared a long list of remedies, including using everything from Oregano, to Lavender and tree tea, to even sunflower lecithin.
Audrey also mentions massaging, ice, and “feeding in different positions.”
However, people were not happy at all as they took to Reddit to slam Audrey, mainly for not suggesting people suffering from Mastitis to see a doctor.
One person wrote: “It’s really unsafe for her to be advising this! It could mean an infection goes untreated too long!
“Most influencers at least say “always seek medical advice.”
Another added: “This is incredibly irresponsible advice. Some young mother may actually try this and end up getting unnecessarily and severely ill.
“Someone else may have mentioned this already, but you can report this for inappropriate/false information on IG by clicking on the three dots at the top right corner of the screen.”
While a third chimed in: “She is posting misinformation. If people want mastitis advice, they need to talk to a medical professional, not some random mom from TV.
“I’m reporting this on IG.”
Audrey and her husband, Jeremy Roloff, share two young kids: daughter Ember, three and son Bode, one.
However, the TLC star has also been bashed a ton lately as fans have called her out for various reasons, including for some of her parenting decisions.
Recently, the mother of two was ripped for skiing with Ember in a big snowstorm despite mountain closures, and putting the little one in a potentially dangerous situation.
One person wrote: “Poor Ember. I have a feeling Audrey is going to push her into doing a lot of things she doesn’t necessarily enjoy just so Audrey can relive her childhood.”
Later on, when one fan asked if the trolls didn’t affect her, she said: “I’m honestly pretty good at brushing them off. Realizing they don’t have context and that I don’t have to defend every accusation made against me helps and is freeing.

“I’m also reminded that ‘hurt people hurt people.’ But I can’t say I’m never [affected]. I am human just like you and people say some pretty sh**** things.”
Previously, Audrey and Jeremy, 30, were called out for for keeping a “dangerous” AXE near their son Bode – which came after their youngest son was allowed to eat glitter.
Audrey, who has also had a feud with sister-in-law Tori Roloff, has also come under fire for forcing the image of a perfect marriage to Jeremy.
