She went through rough times when she was slammed for drinking alcohol while pregnant with her youngest child.
Now, Teen Mom star Maci Bookout is facing a new crisis, revealing her son Maverick is facing serious health concerns.
The 25-year-old made the candid admission in her tell-all memoir I Wasn’t Born Bulletproof: Lessons I’ve Learned (So You Don’t Have to).
“Maverick, my third, had more issues with sleeping and was diagnosed with silent reflux,” she wrote.
“It can easily be misinterpreted as fussiness because there are no visible symptoms other than inconsolable crying.”
The MTV star also added how “frustrating and upsetting” it was to watch the 10-month-old get “so worked up” about taking his medication.
“His paediatrician prescribed him medicine to reduce stomach acidity and help relieve the pain,” she explains.
“But every time we gave it to him he would push it out with his tongue or he would get so upset that he would throw the medicine right back up.”
But reflux isn’t the only medical problem the youngster has been dealt in recent months.
Maverick often suffers from a nasty rash on his face which reports suggest could be eczema.
Bookout was previously forced to hit back at heavy criticism from fans after she shared a pic of herself holding a beer to Instagram just weeks before announcing she was expecting. There is no suggestion that her son's health problems are in any way related to her drinking.
“Every scene of @MaciBookoutMTV shows her drinking beer and she knows damn well she’s pregnant!” one user penned, while another wrote: “You are so busted!”
Bookout shares Maverick and daughter Jayde, 1, with her husband Taylor Mckinney and is also mother to seven-year-old Bentley with ex-fiance Ryan Edwards.
