"Why do people get so defensive instead of researching what’s best for their kids themselves?"
Emily continued her video by taking the camera into her kitchen, as she said: "I was doing dishes today and I noticed I’m missing three bottles. I’m really scared to find them."

"I have this fake one from the hospital. That’s good enough right?"
Other things she shared was the fact she leaves clothes to "sit in the washer for three days", as well telling everyone her toddler can't resist opening her tampons in the bathroom.
"Cats are great until you realise you’re not going to be scooping their poop into bags for like 20 years," she said.
"Why do they live so long?"
And showing a huge pack of toilet paper on her hallway stairs, she added: "Look what’s back – the toilet paper I bought in bulk and have nowhere else to put."
"We love some hallway toilet paper," she captioned her video.
And despite the fact she was trolled for the screen time issue, others praised her for sharing such a "relatable" video.
"This is real life," one wrote.
"Not the celebrity videos of their sterile architectural digest homes that look like no real kids live there."
