Below Deck Sailing Yacht star Alli Dore has criticized the ‘very sick’ trolls who have made cruel comments about her premature newborn’s feeding tube.
The 32-year-old Australian and her boyfriend, Benny Thompson, welcomed a baby boy named River George on August 26, but the newborn was born prematurely and had to spend several weeks in the NICU.
During that time, Dore shared several photos of her bundle of joy, requiring a feeding tube through his nose while in the hospital — and apparently some very cruel commentators had nasty things to say about the medical device.

Hit Back: When “really sick people” trolled her baby in front of his fallopian tubes, she wrote, “When will this kind of behavior become law?”
Really sick that people are still going to troll a newborn baby from pictures in the hospital. I don’t care what is said about me, but multiple people making fun of my baby’s fallopian tubes, are there any limits?’ she wrote in an Instagram story slide on Wednesday, according to People.
When will this kind of behavior be legalized? Bullying and verbal abuse on the internet is still verbal abuse.
‘I am certainly not the first to think this and unfortunately I will not be the last. Time for some change!’
The negative comments seem to have been removed and thankfully the vast majority of comments on Dore’s posts are positive.
Dore has documented the early days of her son’s life since he arrived’a bit premature but it’s getting better every day.’
Hoera! Earlier this month, she shared a photo of him in a tubeless moment. On Wednesday she revealed that the tubes were gone and he was coming home

“We are so proud of our strong little man,” she wrote on Instagram, when she announced his birth last month.
“Over the past few weeks, we’ve faced challenges that I never thought we’d have to face. It was very emotional, but also the most special time of our lives because we have River at the end of it all.
“I’m so grateful to have @bennithompson by my side because I couldn’t have done this without him. Proud of our family and counting down the days until River can go home.’
On September 2, she wrote that she was “absolutely smitten by this little fighter” when she shared a photo of “a moment without tubes and wires” where “he looks so serene.”
This Wednesday, she also announced that the tubes would come out and that her son would be coming home.
“We are so proud of our strong little man,” she wrote on Instagram when she announced his birth last month
“We are incredibly grateful to all the NICU and SCN nurses at the Royal Womens and Sandringham hospitals,” she wrote.
‘All our hard work has paid off and the last of his tubes are up, which means HOME TIME! So proud of my little fighter!’ she wrote.
“We are incredibly grateful to all the NICU and SCN nurses from the Royal Womens and Sandringham hospitals. Leaving River every night was so difficult, but knowing he was in such capable and caring hands, it was a manageable experience,” she continued.
“The past 3 weeks have been an emotional rollercoaster, but I just want to say that I now have so much respect and understanding for everyone who has taken or is currently doing this journey, because it is the most challenging way to start as a parent. .
“I never knew until we had to do this ourselves, so I just want to acknowledge those warrior women and men, especially since they’re NICU Awareness Month.”
She and her boyfriend, Benny Thompson, announced they were pregnant earlier this year
Dore shared details about her pregnancy on the Unpopular podcast in June.
The reality star then admitted that she had used birth control when she became pregnant and had taken a budget pill she bought in Spain which immediately worried Ben.
She also admitted that she made the mistake of not taking the pill at the same time every day, which led to her surprise pregnancy.
“I’m a little weak…” she said with a laugh. “I think you’re a little bit at ease when you’re in a relationship.”
She added: ‘My only form of birth control was relying on the pill. I would always try to take it as soon as I woke up, but sometimes it wouldn’t be until later in the day.
‘I didn’t know it was so sensitive. Now I’ve learned it!’
