Jessa Duggar takes a jab at mommy shamers after revealing her newborn daughter uses a pacifier

Jessa Duggar attempted to get ahead of mommy shamers after she posted a photo of her newborn daughter, Ivy Jane, using a pacifier. The Counting On mom is no stranger to scrutiny!

Jessa, 26, shared a photo on Instagram on July 10 of Ivy holding a pacifier with a stuffed animal at the end. “I pretty much only give her a pacifier for car rides, so she’s not super good at taking it,” she said before mommy shamers could interject.

Part 2 of the ugly sweater party! . We ate way too much Italian dinner, then dove into desserts that were part of a baking competition. Next was a white elephant gift exchange, and then board games and a movie to bring the evening to an end.

Jessa continued, “But every time it goes in her mouth, she puts both little fists up on her cheeks like this. .”

Most fans gave their overwhelming support for the Counting On mom but she still got trolled. One fan cautioned, “We do the same thing. Car rides and bedtime, [but] other than that we do not give them to [our daughter].”

Another warned, “Be careful with the ones with animals attached. The weight of it, once she has any teeth, will pull on her teeth forward.”

Strangest Duggar family rules
The Duggars are only permitted to join social media after they're engaged to be married. Yup, you read that right -- no ring, no Instagram. Jinger launched her Instagram account just after announcing her engagement to Jeremy Vuolo.
The strict social media rule means that oldest daughter Jana (far right) is unable to have any social media accounts, as she's still single at 27.
The only permitted show of physical affection before marriage are side hugs. That means that the kids' very first kisses are on their wedding days. Jessa and her new husband decided to keep theirs a little private: "We didn’t do ours on stage," she said. "We had ours in private after the ceremony. We ran out and then went to a room by ourselves. That was really special for us."
Although sex is forbidden before marriage, the Duggar parents expect that once vows are exchanged, the lovemaking commences -- often. "You need to always be available when he calls," Michelle has said.
Nearly all dates must be chaperoned by parents Jim Bob and Michelle. If neither parent is available, an older sibling will tag along to keep an eye on things.
Duggar daughters are required to exclusively wear dresses and skirts -- so fans were stunned to see newly-married Jinger wearing shorts and pants! According to reports, her husband gave her permission to do so.
All texts are group texts. Yup! There are no private convos going on here. One example: When Ben Seewald jokingly texted fiance Jessa "Give me a ring," dad Jim Bob was looped in to quickly respond, "No ring yet."  
This one's a given. There is no smoking or drinking to be had at any times with the Duggars.
This may not be an explicit rule, but according to the Duggar daughters, mom Michelle always has the house stocked with pregnancy tests for her married daughters.
The family does not approve of Halloween, reportedly saying that magic and witches are representative of a "demonic realm God wants us to stay away from."
No bikinis for this family -- or really, any average swimsuits at all. "It's just too hard for the guys to try and keep their eyes averted." Michelle has said. Although they've previously said beach trips are forbidden, the family did hit the coast in 2016.

Jessa welcomed Ivy in May. She was criticized for having another home birth, which aired on a special of TLC, after her delivery with her oldest child Spurgeon did not go smoothly.

When she gave birth to Spurgeon in 2015, she lost so much blood that she had to be rushed to the hospital for a blood transfusion. Jessa was similarly rushed to the hospital for excessive bleeding after delivering Ivy, but ended up being fine.
