The well-known baby brand Kyte Baby, which sells bamboo sleeping bags and pajamas, is in hot water after rumors went viral on the internet that it fired a worker who had just given birth to a 22-week-old child. According to the claims, Marissa Hughes, a worker at Kyte Baby, was fired after asking to work from home since she had recently adopted a 22-week-old child who was in a NICU nine hours away.
Following the issue, many on social media are calling on people to boycott the baby brand that Forbes, Poosh, and Today have all featured.
It’s crucial to remember that the accusations made against Kyte Baby are only rumors that are going around the internet. The source of the stories is unknown because Marissa Hughes has not commented on the allegations. But it’s feasible that she shared a private post with a select few people on the internet.
What Happened With Kyte Baby?
After sharing her difficulties getting pregnant with IVF, Marissa Hughes announced last month on a GoFundMe page that she and her husband Rawley had chosen to adopt.
Marissa stated, “We have undergone extensive testing, attended hundreds of doctors appointments, taken hundreds of pills and administered at-home injections, completed multiple failed IUIs, gone through IVF, experienced major complications, almost lost my life [Marissa] during surgery, been pregnant three times and have lost all three of our beautiful babies.”
After that, Marissa begged people to donate money to pay for the costs of the adoption agency, the adoption attorney, the court, a birth mother’s living expenses, the adoption’s medical costs, and the adoption’s counseling costs.

Here is a Facebook post:-
Marissa revealed on January 4, 2024, that they had adopted a premature baby, weighing just over one pound at 22 weeks gestation. This was an exciting development. She disclosed that the infant was nine hours away from their family’s residence in a NICU. Judah’s mother Marissa disclosed that the infant will need to stay in the NICU until March 2024.
In response to the crowdfunding campaign’s $50,000 goal, contributors contributed over $31,653, showing their support for the young mother and her challenges in caring for a preterm kid. As the young mother’s story gained popularity online and donations to the cause were requested, rumors circulated that Marissa, the purported employee of Kyte Baby, had been fired for requesting the ability to work from home.
Although Marissa hasn’t made any similar claims on her social media accounts or in the GoFundMe campaign, we are unable to confirm the accuracy of the claim. On January 4, 2024, a recent post on Marissa’s Facebook page was taken down.
Marissa, who has worked for Kyte Baby for less than a year, was allegedly offered two weeks off per company policy, which she declined, according to a few comments on X.
It all comes down to that company’s policy.
Kyte baby offered her two weeks. She didn’t take it. It’s all on her at this point. She was working for them less than a year and didn’t qualify for FMLA.
Kyte baby isn’t in the wrong.
