Teen Mom OG Star Kailyn Lowry Hits Back at Criticism for not Vaccinating her Baby 

Kailyn Lowry is standing her ground after being slammed for admitting she no longer vaccinates her kids and didn’t vaccinate her youngest child Lux at all.

The 26-year-old mom spoke to Us on Friday, January 25, “I mean, I guess the only thing I can really say and continue to stand for is to parent how it’s best for your child and family. People don’t love everything I do, but I don’t shove my beliefs down anyone else’s throat. I know what’s best for my kids and other parents know what’s best for theirs.”

Lowry spoke openly about her decision to not vaccinate her children after a listener asked her for her opinion on an episode of the podcast “Coffee Convo.”

Lowry said, “I definitely think this is a controversial topic, and I don’t want to lose listeners because of my opinion — but, I did vaccinate Isaac, because to me, I didn’t know any better, and I gave — I let them vaccinate him with whatever they basically said that he needed. And I feel like I was ignorant, and didn’t do research, and didn’t know any better,” The Teen Mom OG star said of her 8-year-old son she shares with ex-boyfriend Jo Rivera.

Lowry went on to talk about her second child, 4-year-old son Lincoln that she shares with ex-husband Javi Marroquin. The reality star began to read and learn more about the pros and cons of vaccinating your child. Lowry spoke to other mothers about vaccinations and watch a multiple “documentaries on Netflix.”

The mom’s youngest child 18-month-old Lux whom she shares with ex Chris Lopez hasn’t been vaccinated at all. “He hasn’t ever really been sick, and for me, I just think the more research that I do, and the more educated I’ve become, I just don’t vaccinate him.”

Need Some Fun and Creative Activities to Keep Your Kiddos Occupied During Winter Break?

Kids are officially out of school for winter break. That means out-of-school activities are in full force to keep your little ones busy and out of trouble. We have some fun and out of the box activities that will keep your kids busy and won’t break the bank.

If you live in a cold climate and there is snow outside you can always rely on a good old fashion afternoon of sledding. You can let your kiddos paint or decorate a sled before going out on the hillside for some sledding. It’s a great art and crafts activity before heading outdoors to run off all of that steam they’ve built up.

Let your kids build a blanket fort in the living room. A great and easy way is to gather blankets and sheets from the linen closet and have your kids drape them over the dining room table. Then supply them with comfy pillows and let them enjoy their favorite holiday movie while sitting in their newly constructed fort.

There is nothing like a good scavenger hunt especially when you don’t know what to do with all of that leftover holiday candy. It’s a great way to keep your kiddos occupied while giving them the incentive to score some candy before you ditch it.

Have a game night, it’s a fabulous way to involve the whole family. Divide up your family in teams and play a game that involves all members like trivia or charades. Make some popcorn and sweet treats so everyone can snack throughout the game.

And last but not least throw a housecleaning party, yes we said housecleaning party. Appoint a room for each of your family members and have them clean out drawers and closets. Have your kids clean out clothes they have outgrown and toys they no longer play with.

Tell your kiddos that items they no longer use will be donated to a local charity or goodwill for someone else to enjoy. To make it more enticing make a point system for each room they clean out and they can cash their points in at the end for more screen time or game time.

Exclusive Interview: Dr. Shahin Ghadir Talks About Fertility

This week Celebrity Baby Scoop got the chance to talk to Dr. Shahin Ghadir all about fertility. He has worked with various celebrities including Mercedes “MJ” Javid from Shahs of Sunset. Dr. Ghadir feels like he was lead to work in this field. During his residency, he got the chance to do a fertility rotation. He realized how working in this field could be life-changing and decided to go that way with his career. So many people can’t have children and a fertility doctor is the only way that being a parent can become a reality for them.

When it comes to his clients, Dr. Shanin Ghadir has seen several celebrities, but he has clients of all types. People from around the world come to see him due to recommendations they have received.

Dr. Ghadir explained how there used to be a bit of a stigma around using a fertility doctor. It isn’t like that at all now, though. Instead, it is more accepted and in some areas even considered “hip.” People aren’t afraid to admit that they have seen a fertility doctor to get assistance with getting pregnant.

He explained that there have been a lot of advancements in the field of fertility over the years. One big thing is that they can now do genetic testing on an embryo. There have also been advances where they can find out when the best time is to place the embryo in the uterus. As Dr. Shanin Ghadir explained, this can really increase the chances of a pregnancy happening after fertility treatments.

If you want to get fertility treatments but can’t afford them, Dr. Shanin Ghadir can help you out with it. His office has financial counselors available to help clients figure out how to make it work for them. He is even working on a charity called “Fertility for All.” It is a very new charity, so they have lists of other charities that help people get grants or loans for fertility treatments.

They also offer a lot of information on their website to help people with financial options and to get more information on fertility treatments. Dr. Shanin Ghadir has made it clear that he wants to help his patients to become parents.

Dr. Shahin Ghadir has an Instagram page where you can keep up with the latest updates on what he is doing in the fertility world.
