This celeb mama is fed up with negative comments about photos of her daughter.

Last week we told you about the major shade social media threw at Coco Austin for sharing photos of her baby Chanel after getting her ears pierced. Of course this wasn't the first time the star mom has been at the receiving end of criticism over pics she's posted of the 6-week-old, who she often dresses up in designer outfits.

Now, Austin has taken to her E! Online blog to defend her frequent posts, which are sent via Chanel's own Instagram and Twitter accounts.

"Both Ice and I have our own fan bases and not everybody is going to want to see Chanel every day, some people, but not everybody," the new mom wrote. "We started this page of her's for people who want to see her grow up and see her outfits and headbands of the week. It's more for people who want to keep an eye on her while not overloading our pages with photos of her."

Austin goes on to brag about her daughter's closet, which I have no doubt would rival that of any adult reality star. She writes, "She's like my little doll. This is my very first doll ever because I never owned a doll in my life and this is my real-life doll. Now I get so much flack for saying that and it bothers me."

The reality diva then proceeds to blast her critics, saying "Of course I know she's a real human being. Don't you know I know that? In these pictures, you can see how much love I have for her. Should I just dress her up in a normal T-shirt? Is that better? Why can't I just have my moment of dressing my daughter up? Why is that such a negative thing? Does she look like she's really mad in these pictures? She actually looks very happy dressed up."

The post ends, "I'm damned if I do, damned if I don't. No matter what I post on Chanel, people are going to find something negative about it. It amazes me. If you're really not liking the way I do things, get off my page. I just avoid them."

Oh, snap. Clearly this is one mama who has had enough of reading the negative comments people post about her baby, and I don't blame her. I too feel like no matter what I write, someone doesn't like it.

You definitely can't please everyone, especially not in this social media-centric day and age. I applaud Coco for turning a deaf ear to negativity.
