A woman has clapped back at online users after she was slammed for leaving her three-month-old daughter with her dad for nearly 48 hours.

Fitness YouTuber, 33-year-old Ashy Bines from the Gold Coast in Australia, says she went away for less than two days to spend a weekend with her friends.

Meanwhile, her husband Steven Evans looked after their youngest child, Tala, and their seven-year-old son, Taj, while she enjoyed some quality time with her buddies.

However, Ashy was shocked to find out that after posting about the weekend, she was met with harsh comments from people who slammed her for being away from her baby.

Read Ashy's post below:

The influencer took to her Instagram page to discuss the comments made on her parenting decision and wrote: "I know judgment has come flying my way leaving her for 48 hours BUT hear me out."

"I LOVE my baby but also LOVE my friends. I LOVE my baby but also love travel and variety. I LOVE my baby but also love doing fun things just for me," she continued.

"I LOVE my baby and fully trust and love Steve having his bonding time with the kids and can enjoy myself knowing they are happy and safe!" Ashy added.

The mother-of-two then revealed that she received a barrage of "judgment" in her inbox, including one comment that read: "How COULD you leave your baby with Steve for that long? That’s so wrong".

Ashy then explained that she felt that it was unfair that others had a problem with her trip - especially considering that the children had been left with their father.

"I think it’s wrong for other women to think it’s wrong, [to] send such a message, and also why would I have children with someone I don’t trust? Wrong to leave my kids with their dad?" She wrote. "If a dad went away for 48 hours he’s never even questioned?"

The fitness mom's post amassed 11,595 likes and many fellow moms rallied behind her and flooded the comment section with praise.

One user wrote: "This is so wild to me. Why is it that Mums have to be with the children all the time? They need time for themselves too. Steve is more than capable of having the kids for 2 days. The main thing is that you enjoy kid-free time away and relax."

Another shared: "Sick of people thinking that they can type out their judgment like that! Sorry, Mumma! You are doing an amazing job, and everyone can see how much you love your children. Sending mummy support your way!"

A third user said: "I think mothers need to do this more often. Quality time with their Dad is so wonderful and it also makes your partner realize how much you really do. Go and enjoy yourself with no guilt!"

Ashy concluded her post by urging her fellow mommy followers to be kind to each other, writing: "Mummas let’s be kind to one another and not project or send hate to another mum who’s doing her thing."

"Might not feel right for you and that’s ok, we all do exactly what feels good for us," she said, adding, "PS: this message didn’t upset me at all, not in the slightest..."

"But did inspire me to write this caption to have a conversation or create awareness for mummas, and remind other mums it's ok for you to have a life and enjoy other parts of your life not just mum life OR just need a break," she added.
