Bristol Palin isn’t one to shy away from sharing photos of her children, and that includes posing with her baby daughter in recent Instagram ad promotions.
The 26-year-old has posted several ads since giving birth in May, and they mostly include her youngest child. Bristol is seen holding baby Atlee Bay, who is two months old, in ads for Teami Blends and FabFitFun.
It seems Palin uses her status as a young mother of three to help drive her promotions. She posted an ad for Teami Blends tea earlier this month as she credited the beverage with giving her much-needed energy.
“…thankful for @teamiblends and their Skinny Tea for giving me all the energy I need to keep up with my littles and helping me feel super healthy and fit after baby number 3!”
Palin is seen holding her baby daughter and wearing an American flag scarf while posing in her immaculate kitchen in the July 4 post. While some of her 141,000 followers swooned over her kitchen, attire, and her post-baby body, others questioned Bristol’s decision to market the product on the Fourth of July.
“Nothing quite like an ad on the Independence Day post.”
But the negative comments were outnumbered by those who found the image to be “sweet” as they complimented the mother-daughter duo.
“Such a sweet pic. Where did you get that scarf? Love it.”
Happy 4th of July!! Spending this Independence Day at home with my babes, thankful for @teamiblends and their Skinny Tea for giving me all the energy I need to keep up with my littles and helping me feel super healthy and fit after baby number 3!

Last week, Bristol shared a promotion for the FabFitFun Box as she once again is seen holding Atlee. She mentioned how being a mom of three young kids keeps her busy and thanked the company for delivering fun products to her doorstep.
“I don’t have much “me” time as a mom of three, but this subscription delivers the most amazing products to my door each season.”
Her loyal fans seem to ignore the fact Palin is apparently using her motherhood status to help her endorse products. Commenters again showed support as they left positive remarks on the post.
“You look so skinny and cute!”

However, it hasn’t been all positive feedback for Palin and husband Dakota Meyer this week as the pair came under criticism for another Instagram post.
Dakota shared a video of little Atlee smiling while accompanying him to a gun store, as reported by the Daily Mail.
“[Meyer shared] footage of his youngest daughter smiling and gurgling in her car seat while he perused the semi-automatic pistols section of a gun store.”
As to be expected, the video did not sit well with some readers. One commenter called Bristol and Dakota “vile” people for allowing their youngsters to be around guns.
Some people did speak out in defense of the couple as they stated the baby has no idea she’s in a gun store.
“They are happy and beautiful family. The children are adorable. They don’t know where they at. They may think in their baby heads, they are in a candy store.”
Girls day again today ???????? ???????? .. Since Atlee was born I've been sure to make myself a tumbler full of @teamiblends every morning! When I say this stuff is a lifesaver for mommas, I mean it! Not only do I have the energy to keep up with a newborn, I also have the energy to keep up with a 17 month old ???????? Mommies, let me know if you have any questions about the tea and I'll answer below! Use my code BRISTOL for 10% off #teamimommi #thankyouteami
Of course, Bristol and Dakota probably expected the gun store video to cause a bit of drama as the family is used to the attention.
But despite a few headlines now and then, it seems Palin has found some peace as she enjoys her growing family and the ad deals that come with her notoriety.
