Carlin Bates’s Newborn Daughter Is Struggling With Heart and Breathing Problems


Recently the Bringing Up Bates star Carlin Bates has shared details about her newborn daughter’s health struggles.


Carlin Bates posted a statement on Instagram that explained the health issues of her daughter. In that post, she breaks down the timeline of 15-week-old Layla’s medical issues.

The 22-year-old mother Carlin wrote, “There have been many ups and downs since our precious Layla was born” She continued, “In some ways, I feel like the hospital has become our 2nd home!”


Carlin added, “Since Layla was born, she has had breathing problems and episodes of turning blue where she can’t catch her breath. When these first started happening we thought, ‘Well, maybe it’s because she was premature, so that’s what’s causing her to struggle more.”


Bates is grateful to all the friends and strangers who are supporting her in this critical situation. She concluded, “Becoming a mother has grown me in so many ways…I’m beyond blessed that God gave me this little girl. We appreciate all your prayers for Layla.”
