First-time mom Coleen Garcia has responded to the criticism she received when she used her breastmilk to treat her son Amari's rashes.
Last September, just days after giving birth, Coleen shared an Instagram Story about her son's rashes.
She wrote, "He started to get rashes and of course I got so praning, showed them to our midwife, OB, pedia, and they all said it's completely normal and that they go away on their own after some time."
"But I felt sorry for him so I put my breastmilk all over his face (except eyes). Then everything disappeared, except for the rashes sa eyes! Then, I started spreading my milk on his eyes as well...and now he's so makinis!"
It drew flak on social media, with some netizens saying she should have listened to the advice of her doctors.
In an interview with Toni Gonzaga on Sunday, November 8, on "I Feel U," Coleen had this to say, "Well, it worked."
"So, I'm not really thinking of anything that they're saying kasi shine-share ko lang naman, parang 'just sharing' 'di ba. It's really up to you naman kasi everybody naman magkakaiba ng style ng parenting."
The 28-year-old actress also said that she doesn't want to push her beliefs on other people.
"Magkakaiba naman tayong lahat so as much as I don't appreciate when people push their beliefs or they push the way they do things to me, I wouldn't push also the way I do things to other people," she said.
"But, you know, ako, I enjoy looking at the journeys of other parents and I enjoy looking at how other people are handling their babies or their pregnancies."
She continued, "Nae-enjoy ko lang, like 'yan, I learned that from someone else. So, there might be somebody like me who's also looking at my profile and they might pick it up, 'yung ganoon lang."
