A baby sleep expert is reportedly facing “cancel culture” because of her support for former President Donald Trump. Cara Dumaplin’s successful business has hit a rough road after it was found that she donated more than $1000 to Trump campaigns between December 2016 and December 2019.

Dumaplin’s ‘Taking Cara Babies’ has reportedly been like a boon for new parents, who struggle to put their babies to sleep. But many have now threatened to boycott her and her courses. One such new parent is Kristina Edmunson of Portland, Oregon, who shared a letter on her Twitter account in which she demanded a “full refund” of $74 from Dumaplin’s company. “If I had known that you – in your personal capacity – had donated to President Trump I would never have spent a dime on your program. Babies are living in cages away from their parents because of the actions of the President. Even though my 5-month-old still takes naps, she is woke,” the letter read.



 

Edmunson also spoke to TODAY regarding Dumaplin’s donations and said, “This wasn't just a one-off. It made me understand that this was a really committed action on her part." Another mother Sarah Kontorovsky, from Greenville, South Carolina, said as reported by The Sun, though Dumaplin’s course helped her a lot, she does not support her now because of her support for the Republican leader. “She supports an administration that has been very aggressive to Hispanic immigrants like my husband and I, and the money I paid for her courses funded campaigns that fundamentally reject my family. And I find that unacceptable,” the woman, who originally hails from Nicaragua, added.

Many also took to Twitter to express their thoughts over the whole scenario. One user said, “Parents! If you follow Taking Cara Babies and/or have supported Cara Dumaplin’s business in any way, you’ve been unknowingly supporting Trump.” “For anyone in #parenting circles who isn’t aware, Cara Dumaplin of Taking Cara Babies funded the Trump campaign 18 times in 2020. She’s a fascist-funding white supremacist piece of shit,” the second user wrote. The third user added, “I had a baby four months ago. I've found Cara Dumaplin's "Taking Cara Babies" site and videos so helpful. But today, I also found out she's a recurring Trump donor. So I'm telling the world because I'm really bummed that my money went toward his campaign, even indirectly.”



 



 



 

However, some even came in support of Dumaplin with a person tweeting, “I personally credit Cara Dumaplin for helping save our sanity when our son was little and struggling to sleep. Now a mob of leftists are trying to ruin her business and her life because she donated a small amount to Trump in 2019. These people are sick in the head.” Another one added, “The people trying to burn #takingcarababies at the stake are the same ones that claim they want unity.  They have wasted no time in completely tearing Cara Dumaplin to shreds. What happened to respecting everyone equally? Women supporting women? Hypocrites.”



 



 

Dumaplin, a well-known name in the parenting world, did not directly talk to TODAY about the boycott but sent a statement that read, “Taking Cara Babies is about helping babies get sleep and parents reclaiming the joy of parenthood that’s often lost due to sleep deprivation. Between 2016 and 2019, I made a series of donations (totaling $1,078) to the Trump campaign. As with many citizens, there were aspects of the Trump Administration that I agreed with and some that I disagreed with. I will continue to serve all parents by empowering them with the tools they need to help their babies sleep."
