Kristen Bell Shuts Down Mom-Shaming After Announcing Her 5-Year-Old Still Wears Diapers

When it comes to mom-shamers, Kristen Bell is not afraid to shut them down — especially when it’s over her 5-year-old having difficulty potty training.

In a new episode of her web series, Momsplaining, Bell went on to tackle parenting struggles: including potty training with celeb mamas Maya Rudolph and Casey Wilson.

Bell shared how simple it was to potty training her oldest daughter, 7-year-old Lincoln.

“My oldest daughter, at 21 months, we merely suggested that she use the toilet in the other room and never wore another diaper beyond that,” she said.

And when it comes to her youngest daughter, Delta? “Currently, my youngest is 5½; still in diapers,” Bell said.

“I also [don’t] think [it’s] humiliating if ur kid wears diapers late,” Bell responded.

“Everyone is different. My 5yr old wouldn’t be embarrassed even if she was in diapers during the day! She’s confident & goofy & doesn’t see anything about her beautiful unique self something to apologize for. Xo”

Bell went on to reveal that Delta only wears diapers at night because her “tiny bladder [can’t] take the 10 hr challenge yet.”

In response to another Twitter user who wrote, “Well yeah, she’s 5. What about when she’s 14?

Bell then quipped back:

“Don’t you worry, she won’t sleep in diapers at 14 🙂 Her small bladder has a hard time making it through a 10 hr sleep. It’s so interesting to me that you’re all paying attention to and commenting on such a non-issue in my family.”

*Snaps* for Kristen!
