Jade Roper Tolbert safely delivered her baby, Brooks in July this year. Her baby came so suddenly she gave birth at home and shared about the extreme stress of it all. Then later, she said she felt “not okay” and talked to her husband about her mental health. Now, it looks like Jade feels terribly guilty and carries loads of guilt because of Brooks’ below-par weight gain.
Jade Roper’s baby arrived in a rush, later her mental health’s not okay
TV Shows Ace reported that Jade’s baby really came so fast, she never made it to the birthing center. In fact, we reported the whole experience was frightening and harrowing for the Bachelor Nation alum. She shared about it on her Instagram after the birth. There, Jade said, “It was one of the scariest moments of my life because I felt so out of control. But Tanner, Tanner’s mom, my mom, and the medics and firefighters kept me going when I felt like the world was caving in on me and my unborn baby.”
But, while Jade Roper seemed fine after the birth of Brooks, she later encountered mental health issues. She said on Instagram that she just decided to speak out one day. Jade told her hubby Tanner, that she was “not okay.” Life & Style reported that she suffers from “mom guilt” when she’s away from her child. Plus, she urged people to be aware of their mental health issues and talk about it to someone. That was back in October. But now, stress, worry, and guilt overtake her again.
Dealing with worry and guilt over Brooks’ poor weight gain
On Friday, Jade took to Instagram to share her guilt and stress as Brooks is not gaining weight properly. In a very long post, she poured her heart out. In part, she said, “We went to Brooks’ four month check up and I was crushed to find out he’s in the 5th percentile, and that the ped was very concerned about his weight gain.” She added, “I’ve never felt more like a failure. The feelings of guilt that my baby was aching for food and nutrition, and I didn’t know it, consumed me.”
But, they had loads of feeding issues with Brooks before that. In her post, Jade detailed some of those. They included “allergies that left him crying for hours on hours from malabsorption, a lip and tongue tie… milk supply issues,” and “foremilk/hindmilk imbalance.” It sounds like she went thr9uygh a very worrying time. Now, the BIP alum asked others how they deal with that sort of worry and guilt.
Fans react to Jade’s post about Brooks
Many fans told Jade Roper not to get all guilty about it. This seems quite a common problem. Some shared their experiences, and others encouraged Jade. One follower said, “There will ALWAYS be enough worry to go around as a momma. You are doing your best, listening to what the pediatrician is informing you, and implementing the plan. THAT is being an amazing mom!!! Give yourself grace. He is going to be fine. Continue adjusting as needed and before you know it, they’ll be teenagers and you’ll be laughing about how stressed you use to be… 💛”
