JWoww does not want to be told how to parent.

Jenni “JWoww” Farley, 30, took to Instagram on Sunday, about one hour after posting an adorable shot of her 9-week-old son Greyson with her husband Roger Mathews in the pool.

Her second post fired back at commenters on her previous Instagram, some of whom suggested that it was unsafe for her newborn to be in the pool and claiming the child wasn’t wearing sunscreen.

“Not even sure why I am even doing this but I feel like schooling people on my previous post,” the former Jersey Shore star wrote. “First off, my son is two months and in a salt water pool up to his belly… Probably for a total of three minutes.”

Then, she redirected the post to address the debate over whether or not she put sunscreen on her baby.

“But second is where I need to really educate trolls…” she said. “Let me explain to the haters that decided to comment about no sunscreen and the dangers bla bla bla My son actually does have sunscreen on. It’s the same concept as diaper cream. Probably even better than the crap s— you lather your children in.”

It's the same concept as diaper cream. Probably even better than the crap shit you lather your children in. Remember ass holes im in the tanning industry and pride myself on knowing this. So, here is what I mixed for my son so I know for the 2 minutes he would be safe: Coconut Oil- SPF 4-6 Zinc Oxide SPF 2-20 depending on how much used Carrot Seed Oil – SPF 35-40… Go enjoy your Sunday now 💅🏼😒🖕

And then she told her followers the exact mix of her DIY baby sunscreen combination.

“Remember assh—- I’m in the tanning industry and pride myself on knowing this. So, here is what I mixed for my son so I know for the 2 minutes he would be safe: Coconut Oil- SPF 4-6 Zinc Oxide SPF 2-20 depending on how much used Carrot Seed Oil – SPF 35-40… Go enjoy your Sunday now.”

Farley is also mom to daughter Meilani, who turns 2 on Wednesday. And while she wants more kids, she says she’s not getting pregnant again.

“Roger and I have spoken about adopting in the future, but no more pregnancies!” she told E! News. “I want to get my body back and keep it.”

Good for her, I’m tired of people creating a whole back story to a photo when they have absolutely no idea what came before or after. Can’t we just send out a positive comment instead of tearing people apart for sitting in a pool??? I really believe all the negative comments sent out into the world just incites more anger and irrationality.

Kristin on

If it’s not your kid then mind your own business.

Stella on

Simple fix: Stop posting photos of your minor child online. Children are not the ones desperate for recognition and attention, they are not asking to have their family moments exploited, and they are not old enough to consent.

The Free Woman on

oh lord! Stop posting photos dumb @$$

guest on

I probably would have fired back the same thing. However, when you live your life on social media you have to expect people are gonna feel free to make comments. It sucks but that’s just the way it is. Especially when you are a celebrity.

Debbie on

I just don’t understand anyone who follows celebrities on social media like this. Even more so is why is this concerning to us with all that going on in this country? That is the only reason I’m commenting on this.

Linda on

Good for you Jenni….People who hide behind these screens all day and spew hateful remarks need to mind their own damn business. Who died and left them in charge of anything to begin with….uh, no one! I personally can’t stand people like that. smh

FAHHHHHHQqqq on

Deadbeat Mom. Please have your ovaries removed and have your grease ball baby daddy get neutered.

Carolyn on

Neither person really knew what she was talking about since pediatricians suggests that no child under the age of six months should wear sunscreen. The recommendation is that you keep children that young out of the sun.

Mary Grace on

And she is relevant to anything why ???

sasha on

If you posting your pictures on social media, you have to expect people making comments, after all you put pictures out there wanting the public to see.

Whatever on

Hey -Whatever your name is. Why don’t you take your own advice and get off the internet and enjoy your Sunday with your family.

Jamie on

A few minutes in the sunshine without sunscreen isn’t dangerous anyway. In fact, many would say it’s good for your mood, regulating your sleep patterns, and getting vitamin d. However, some sunscreens DO have harmful ingredients.

No just no on

Who cares about this dumbass and water she puts sunscreen on her kid

Sandra on

these A, B, C and D-listers are so bloody unintelligent. They keep posting pics of their kids, babies, newborns in various situations and complain when random people comment and critique them. How about to just let your kids be kids and don’t expose them to the public, or rather not exploit them in the first place? But these people are so shallow, they have no gimmicks of their own, so they use their kids to stay relevant. Disgusting!!

Ellie on

Stop posting photos. End of.

Anonymous on

You tell them Jwoww! I don’t mind advice, but telling you how to parent is annoying! I would of done the same thing.

Erin on

She’s a human being and she can share happy photos of her children. “Oh but she is in the public eye and should expect it”. Blah blah blah. How about everyone just stop being jerks because someone is a celebrity! I bet you don’t go comment these nasty comments on your friends photos!!! Why can’t people just learn to be nicer to everyone? You can be helpful and comment in a nicer manner.

Annmarie on

Ignore them Mama..maybe you can make the haters some cream for that burn ..😉.

Katie on

Dude, you are not even supposed to put sunscreen on a newborn.

Zas on

Stop post photos if you don’t want people to comment.

Lisa on

How could anyone even know if the baby has sunscreen on? I’m sure she takes great care of her children. He has on an adorable hat…..he’s safe with his Dad! He is absolutely adorable! He has his sister’s face and his Mom’s eyes……..and his Dad’s body!! LOL!!! Let Jenni be………..she knows what’s best for her kids.

Jmmonit on

All I see is an adorable photo of dad and baby.

People are crazy and, apparently, not too bright.
