This is one mama who struts her stuff on the catwalk—and on Instagram. We can't help loving how Coco Rocha, new mom to her 6-month old daughter, Ioni James, is standing up for herself on social media.

Rocha posted an image on Insta endorsing GoButler, a service/app that takes care of those little details that are annoying to deal with, like buying more formula when you're traveling. (Oh, if only all moms could afford such a luxury, right?) Coco posted a screenshot of her conversation with her 'butler' and how she was concerned that she wouldn't have enough formula to last through her vacation with her hubs and baby. While it might seem like just another Instagram post, the naysayers were quick to attack Coco—questioning why she stopped breastfeeding Ioni so young.

The next day, Rocha posted another photo of her sweet girl drinking from a bottle with a caption that read: "Getting a lot of unwanted advice based on my last post. Not that this is anyone's business—I loved breastfeeding Ioni for the first 5 months of her life and then one day my milk went dry. It happens to every mom at different times. She's been on formula for a few weeks now and seems to be doing just fine. In the last 4 weeks she gained another 2 pounds, grew another inch and is in the 90th percentile for her age. Anyone who has a negative comment to make on the way I raise my baby will be blocked. This is not a democracy, everyone doesn't get a say."

We can't agree more, Coco. As long as baby is healthy, happy and fed—does it really matter how long or how you made sure they received the proper nutrition? Not at all. Go, Coco, go!
