'Six-Pack Mom' Sarah Stage shuts down trolls in epic Instagram

Fitness blogger Sarah Stage just gave birth to her second baby, and while all she should be receiving are wishes of support and congratulations, some of her social media followers have been criticizing her postpartum wardrobe. Just one week after giving birth to her newborn son, Stage posted a selfie of herself posing in skinny jeans ​​​​​​, much to the critique of some of her followers.

Well, it’s been a week since Baby Logan was born and there’s been so much on my mind! We are so happy and baby is doing great! I’m slowly but surely recovering from another c section! If we aren’t at a doctors appointment then I’m usually in bed most of the day because my incision is still healing obviously! I wear pads the size of ✈️ and jeans/jeggings hold them in place (so kindly stfu if you’re going to judge a woman who just gave birth on just her outfit 😘). I even got messages of people getting mad about having my make up and hair done in my last post. My make up team consisted of just me being in a hospital bed with a mirror and an extra 10 minutes... but who cares? Why can’t we look and feel good whenever we want? Whether ur wearing make up or not... you’re fabulous and it’s really no ones business. Social media sometimes can give the illusion of a certain type of life (I’ve gotten messages saying wow it must be so easy you’re already up and about & I wish I could say that everything is back to normal but I’d be lying !) You know that JUST LIKE YOU, I’m doing the best I can while having swollen boobs, pads in my nursing bra, ✈️ pads granny panties, baby spit up on my shirt, crazy hormones, no sleep BUT it’s all worth it!! 👶🏻 I hope that Now, since I have ANOTHER healthy baby, it will show you that although we are all different, we all care about ONE outcome over anything else and that is a healthy baby and healthy pregnancy!! And lastly, shoutout to all the women (not just mommies) who got my fitness guide and are reaching their fitness goals!! I’m so happy and excited you are loving your results !! 🙌🏼 can’t wait for my own SnapBack in 6 weeks or so! 💋 The amount of sweet comments and messages have been overwhelmingly nice and we really appreciate the kind words. Now back to cuddling with my babes 💋 #WeGotThis #momlife #1weekoldToday #teamnosleep #2for2

Stage explains in her Instagram caption that her jeans help to keep her comfortable, and says that the haters can "kindly stfu if you're going to judge a woman who just gave birth on just her outfit." Stage goes on to ask, "Why can't we look and feel good whenever we want? Whether ur wearing make up or not... you're fabulous and it's really no ones business." Once again, Stage proves that a flawless Instagram doesn't always mean a flawless reality, and social media never tells the whole story.

Stage had previously faced a fair share of criticism during her pregnancy, clapping back at the "Instagram medical experts" who slammed her workout routine.
