The woman named Gwen took to TikTok and responded to a troll who commented: “OMG I can’t believe you dress your child in neutrals, you’re depriving him of a colourful life.”
Alongside a video, she penned: “Kids don’t need to walk around looking like [a rainbow and unicorn] to be introduced to colour.”
Many of Gwen’s followers took to the comments section, with very mixed responses.
“So you only had children for the aesthetic? sad. let them grow up with a normal childhood,” wrote one.
A second commented: “So depriving your children of colours isn’t just about fun it’s actually stunting their development… so maybe rethink this.”
In response, Gwen quipped: “I didn’t know what they wear affected their development.”
A third added: “The problem isn’t with the colours. The problem is with you dressing your kid instead of letting them make their own choices.”
Gwen snapped back: “My 13 month old does a marvellous job choosing what to wear each day, among other independent decisions he has freedom to make.”
She went on to explain how her son does have shades of greens, blues, reds.
“I just don’t like that majority of baby boy clothes are cars and dinosaurs,” she continued.
“I also like using neutrals as a base and build outfits off of those pieces.”
Elsewhere, others defended the mum, with one writing: “It’s literally hilarious that people think dressing your kid in neutrals is so bad!! colours/prints are an aesthetic too ya know lol.”
Another added: “Unless the child is screaming and crying. You can dress them however you please.”
