Kailyn Lowry is standing her ground after being slammed for admitting she no longer vaccinates her kids and didn’t vaccinate her youngest child Lux at all.
The 26-year-old mom spoke to Us on Friday, January 25, “I mean, I guess the only thing I can really say and continue to stand for is to parent how it’s best for your child and family. People don’t love everything I do, but I don’t shove my beliefs down anyone else’s throat. I know what’s best for my kids and other parents know what’s best for theirs.”
Lowry spoke openly about her decision to not vaccinate her children after a listener asked her for her opinion on an episode of the podcast “Coffee Convo.”
Lowry said, “I definitely think this is a controversial topic, and I don’t want to lose listeners because of my opinion — but, I did vaccinate Isaac, because to me, I didn’t know any better, and I gave — I let them vaccinate him with whatever they basically said that he needed. And I feel like I was ignorant, and didn’t do research, and didn’t know any better,” The Teen Mom OG star said of her 8-year-old son she shares with ex-boyfriend Jo Rivera.
Lowry went on to talk about her second child, 4-year-old son Lincoln that she shares with ex-husband Javi Marroquin. The reality star began to read and learn more about the pros and cons of vaccinating your child. Lowry spoke to other mothers about vaccinations and watch a multiple “documentaries on Netflix.”
The mom’s youngest child 18-month-old Lux whom she shares with ex Chris Lopez hasn’t been vaccinated at all. “He hasn’t ever really been sick, and for me, I just think the more research that I do, and the more educated I’ve become, I just don’t vaccinate him.”
