‘Taking Cara Babies’ sleep guru faces boycott for supporting Trump



A popular baby-sleep guru is being hit with a call to boycott her business after it was revealed she donated to former President Donald Trump’s campaign. 

The online drama unfolded Tuesday, when a fellow parenting expert tweeted a screenshot of Federal Election Commission records showing “Taking Cara Babies” founder Cara Dumaplin gave just over $1,000 to the Trump campaign.

“I looked on the FEC site after someone tagged me in a post on [Instagram],” Jamie Grayson wrote from his @TheBabyGuyNYC account.

Dumpalin is the influencer behind the “Taking Cara Babies” Instagram page, which boasts 1.3 million followers and a loyal customer base who revere her as a baby magician of sorts.

Following the revelation, Dumpalin’s following erupted in virtual debate.

“Mom Facebook is currently exploding over the discovery of FEC screenshots showing Taking Cara babies donated to Trump,” BuzzFeed reporter Katie Notopoulos tweeted.

Dumpalin eventually admitted to the donations, but stopped short of apologizing or expressing regret. 

“Between 2016 and 2019, I made a series of donations (totaling $1,078) to the Trump campaign,” Dumpalin reportedly said in a statement to BuzzFeed and other media outlets.

“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.”
