Although Lowell censored her little girl's nipples by placing little heart emojis over her chest, fans slammed the troubled TV personality who has been in and out of treatment for depression.
Lowell, who raises Nova with her husband, the cutie's father Tyler Baltierra, cheerfully captioned an Instagram March 23 shot of bare-chested Nova with an egg in her hand, "Someone's excited to paint some eggs!" as a pre-Easter activity.
But some followers felt the Teen Mom OG star, 26, had gone too far in showing Nova without her shirt on.
"Totally creepy and inappropriate," one fan wrote, responding to Lowell's Instagram photo.
Another responded about the strategically-placed emojis, "right, and the hearts covering her somehow makes it more inappropriate to me lol."
However, others defended Lowell, with one fan commenting that the emojis made it okay: "It covers the important stuff with the hearts. Much like a bikini on her would. So get over it."
Another pointed out that Lowell probably just didn't want to get Nova's shirt dirty while working with paint or dye.
Lowell previously caused consternation in 2016 for posting a Snapchat of Nova showering naked.
So far, the MTV star seems unconcerned by the flak, leaving the photo up on her social media.
Lowell stunned Teen Mom OG fans late last year with a desperate cry for help, tweeting that she was going into a facility for depression, writing, "Well today I thought of every way to kill myself.. so I’m going to treatment."
She also revealed grim details about her suicidal thoughts exclusively to RadarOnline.com, saying, “I’m taking the time I need right now to take good care of myself. On November 17th I thought of every way possible to commit suicide, from wrapping a belt around my neck to just running my car into an electric pole."
Since then, Lowell, who suffered a miscarriage, has been in and out of the treatment facility and as RadarOnline.com has reported her dad recently revealed her traumatic childhood after her PTSD diagnosis.
In a Teen Mom OG scene, Baltierra was shown taking Nova to visit her mommy at the rehab center in a heartbreaking moment.
Lowell asked her daughter for a kiss as cameras rolled.
