Jill Dillard shocked her followers when she shared a photo of Frederick inside of a rather expensive crib. The photo created a massive divide among fans and followers of the Duggar family. Some fans believed if Jill and her husband Derick could afford something so expensive, they should enjoy it.
Other fans, however, questioned how the couple could possibly afford such a pricy crib. Moreover, some fans considered dropping so much money on a bed the baby would quickly grow out of was a huge waste of money. What exactly was Frederick sleeping in? And, how expensive was it? Keep reading for the details.
Jill Dillard has newborn in pricey crib
Duggar fans were pretty quick to call attention to the fact that Jill and Derick’s newborn was snoozing in a bed called the SNOO Smart Sleeper Bassinet. According to a search on Google Shopping, the bassinet retails for $1,700 at Target, Amazon, and Happiest Baby. The Happiest Baby also offers the option of renting the crib for six months for $600.
“Is Jilly using a Snoo sleeper ($1,700) for Freddy?” One Duggar fan questioned in a thread on Reddit. The individual attached the photo down below which saw Freddy’s brothers peaking in the crib and taking a look down at their newborn brother. The photo originated from Jill’s Instagram profile.
Not everyone rushed to crucify the mother
There were MANY fans who popped into the thread in defense of Jill and her expensive crib. Many noted that this crib could be purchased used at a much more affordable price via the Facebook marketplace. Some fans pointed out she could have also opted to rent it at a fraction of the cost. Moreover, fans added there are a lot of knock of versions of the bassinet on the market now as well.
Knowing the Duggar family enjoys being thrifty and Jill adored hitting thrift stores with her cousin Amy, it stands to reason this could have been an item she purchased used.
One fan even argued Jill should be able to do whatever she wanted with her kids while taking a dig at Jessa: “I like to think because Jill isn’t married to a wanna be rapper preacher boy her kids get to sleep in Snoo while Blessas babies sleep in an apple box picked up at Costco.”
Another fan chimed in to add that Jill did confirm in the comments of her place that it was the expensive crib everyone thought it was.
She confirmed in the comments it is indeed a snoo. She probably got it on sale or is renting it or Facebook but even if she paid full price she deserves it she spent how many years losing sleep over someone else’s babies? She deserves good nights sleep and anyways Derrick is an attorney now and she’s been getting lots of sponsorships.”
