While some viewers appreciated the light-hearted nature of the video, others expressed concerns over the language used, with comments emphasizing that taking care of one’s own child shouldn’t be labeled as “babysitting.” A few viewers took a more humorous approach, suggesting that the couple was likely joking.

Iyah responded to comments, clarifying that the post was meant to be sarcastic and humorous. Despite the clarification, opinions remain divided, reflecting diverse perspectives on parenting and humor.
