Jessa Duggar slammed the ‘unhygienic’ parenting move with her daughter Fern, 1, in a ‘gross’ new video
JESSA Duggar has been slammed for her ‘unsanitary’ upbringing of her daughter Fern.
The Counting alum came under fire for letting the year-old suck a lollipop that stuck to the back of her dress for half an hour.
Jessa, 30, shared a video of Fern wandering around the living room at her Arkansas home looking for her lollipop.
Stepping into the shot, she rocked her daughter and pointed out that she was stuck to her dress.
“It’s right here. Here’s your lollipop!” exclaimed Jessa. “It’s stuck to the back of your dress.
The TLC star cheered, “Yay!” as Fern managed to get the sweet treat off her clothes.
She added: “That’s what you call saving it for later! Yum! Just as good as half an hour ago.”
Jessa captioned the clip, “‘just saving that for later'” and added a laughing emoji.
While the mother-of-four saw the video’s funny side, some of her followers weren’t quite as amused.
One wrote in a since-deleted comment, “This seems a little… unsanitary?”

Another added, “Yes, my first thought was gross,” and a third asked, “How on earth did it end up there?”
However, others praised the sweet moment with one comment: “This is too funny. Better the dress than the hair!”
“So cute! She was so happy to enjoy it again too,” noted another user.
Jessa has four children with her husband Ben Seewald, 27: Spurgeon, seven; Henry, five; ivy, three; and fern.
Fans believe Jessa could be pregnant with a fifth child after spotting what appeared to be a lump under her dress in a Christmas decorating video late last year.
The reality star fueled rumors last week when she appeared in the YouTube video of her pregnant sister Joy-Anna.
Fans noticed that Jessa looked like she was trying to hide her stomach while taking her sisters to a nail salon to celebrate Jana’s birthday.
The 19 Kids & Counting graduate sat in a chair with a bag over her stomach while she got a pedicure.
Pointing out the suspicious placement of her bag, one eagle-eyed fan commented: “The old purse before the stomach trick? Coincidence or #29?”
Another added: “The 2x large baggy sweatshirt only adds to speculation that she is pregnant.”
