Jill Duggar Is Criticized For Leaving 6 Month Old Son On A Filthy Carpet!

Jill Duggar got criticized online after she left her six month old son Samuel on a dirty carpet, according to In Touch.

The Counting On TV star posted a photo on Instagram of little Samuel, her second son with husband Derick Dillard, crawling on a shag wall-to-wall carpet.

As In Touch reported, some followers said that Jill, 26, should have put a blanket under the baby to prevent him from getting dirty and suffering rug burn.

But Jill basked in his cuteness, commenting in a caption, "That face tho! We love our little #SamSam."

Samuel is now happy and healthy after he suffered a medical crisis after his birth, as a photo posted by Derick, 28, recently showed.

Derick, who is often under fire, revealed on social media that Samuel was hooked up to wires at the time of his birth.

The disgraced former Counting On star posted a series of photos in honor of his mother's birthday. In one of the photos, Samuel could be seen with tubes coming out of his nose.

"That is a tube to suction fluid out of the lungs," a fan suspected. "When babies are born by C-section the fluid does not get pushed out by contractions. It is normal to have to get this out, not a complication. Happened with both my C-section babies."

Another wrote, "Omg poor Samuel, feeding tube and oxygen. Don't think he was as healthy at birth as you said originally."

It was the second C-section for midwife Jill, who also had to have the procedure for oldest boy Israel, 2.

As readers know, ultra-religious Jill's first birth was chaotic as she wanted to do it at home but was rushed to the hospital after a 70-hour labor and scary complications, the whole drama was shown on Counting On.

Jill and her husband were reportedly called out by trolls in November after a photo surfaced of Samuel on the floor while they ate Thanksgiving dinner.

One mom wrote online, "How about a carrier or swing — something besides the dirty floor? I would have never done that to either of my children."

The couple has had a rough time recently. Also in November, Derick was fired from TLC for his cutting comments about transgender network star Jazz Jennings.
