Britney not that bad a mom, but does business naked; first pic of Jayden James

The reason why we haven’t seen Britney this week after her barf-filled stripper bikini weekend (although it really didn’t occur to me until I read this story) is because she flew to Miami with her kids and without the help in an attempt to spend some quality alone time with them. It only lasted a few days and not a week as she intended, but it seems her heart was in the right place and was not two sizes too small as we all assumed: has learned that Spears, 25, checked into the Four Seasons Hotel in Miami around midnight on Monday with her boys, 17-month-old Sean Preston and 5-month-old Jayden James.

“The hotel was full so we put Britney and the children in a two bedroom condo hotel room, which is very residential and like a big city apartment,” a hotel source tells Us.

According to the source, Britney and her boys made the trip solo – minus even a nanny. “Britney called the concierge desk, saying she was not able to shop herself because she had no one to watch the kids, so would a female please go out and buy her a bright-colored bikini,” says the source. “Britney was totally wishing she had help to take care of those kids.”

By Wednesday night, the source says, Spears was feeling so overwhelmed by the kids that even though she had planned originally to stay a week she decided to fly back to Los Angeles on Valentine’s night. “Something happened,” explains the source.

We shouldn’t give her a break because she’s clearly outside the norm as to what is acceptable behavior for a mother of two, but at least she’s trying. She could have brought a nanny with her, but she wanted to make some kind of statement about how she’s capable, and she seems to have also wanted to spend time with her kids away from the paparazzi.

It’s possible she doesn’t have a good nanny at this point, though. Her former live-in child minder told OK! magazine that she’s actually a decent mother who tries hard, but usually doesn’t know her ass from her elbow.

Britney’s old nanny said that she needs help with the little things when it comes to her babies, but that she really loves them and will sleep with them at night when she eventually gets home from partying.

She also said Britney routinely walks around the house butt-naked and conducts business with people from her bathtub:

“She is really sweet and loving,” her nanny tells OK!. “She loves her kids, she just not very knowledgable about the little things…”

The nanny recalls that even though she stopped breast-feeding her youngest, Jayden James, months ago, the caring mom thought she could just pick up where she left off. “Two weeks ago, she thought she could start breast-feeding Jayden again.”

As confounding as it might sound, Britney loves her children, Sean Preston, 17 months, and Jayden, 5 months, and wants only the best for them, those around her insist. “She’s very loving and when they cry she is very patient…”

“She wakes up at two or three in the afternoon, and lives this very free life, where often she’s not wearing many clothes,” her former nanny says. “She’ll be in the bathtub and have meetings, and people just come in there and talk to her…”

“When she comes home at night,” a former employee tells OK!, “she takes them from the nanny and brings them in her room and puts them in bed with her, no matter what time it is.”

[From OK! print edition, January 19, 2007]

That’s kind of the impression I already had of Britney, although in my version she was passing out in her room without the children. It’s somewhat endearing to hear that she drags them into her drunken bed with her.

The article was written when Britney was still with Isaac Cohen, and talks about what a helpful, likeable guy he is, which kind of explains why he dropped her like a hot potato.

This week’s OK! has the first pic of Jayden James, header and inset, and a doubtful story about how Britney and Justin might reunite. Jayden was said to have fallen ill with breathing problems recently. He was given antibiotics, a nebulizer and steroids to clear his chest after “wheezing” fits. Jayden’s health problems may have been what cut Britney’s Miami trip short.

And US Weekly has the story about how everyone is abandoning Britney. Her recent ex Isaac Cohen sold his story to News of the World while K-Fed and Justin shared an overhyped handshake on the red carpet at Timberlake’s February 9 Grammy party.

    Wow. What a caring Mum. Wakes up at 2 or 3 in the afternoon to look after them?

    Gave up breastfeeding and thought she could just start again after months of not breastfeeding?

    And it sounds like Jayden had a bad case of croup, I’ve been through it with my son and it can be really serious, or maybe it was asthma from ciggie smoke.

    Wake up to yourself Britney and get your shit together or those kids will be taken away.
    P.S If that is Jayden he looks cute.

  2. Sandra says:

    I agree, Jayden looks cute!

    I think Britney should nutured, to protect possible other children from a very bad mother.

    Taking them into her own bed, late at night. This is for her own pleasure and not very healthy for the children. Britney is like a child with a cuddly toy with her children. Except these toys have feelings too, Britney!

  3. Maritime says:

    Is Jayden wearing a pink snowsuit disguise or is he really a baby girl?

    I’ve gotta give Brit and KFed credit, they make beautiful children. I think SP is one of the cutest celeb kids I’ve seen (Kingston Rossdale is pretty cute too).

    Two babies under the age of two would be overwhelming for anybody without help. I only have once child and had NO help from anyone not even my now ex-husband. Being a single working mother is not easy. If I could afford help like Britney’s I would have 3 or 4!

    While I don’t agree with her partying everynight, at least she has the money to pay for fantastic round the clock child care. I do hope she gets pulls herself up out of this and makes a great comeback — that would put that turd K-Fed in his place.

    That babies Jacket looks pink!!

  6. declanium says:

    okay, i am a mom of two little boys, who are only 15 months apart…..yet i can take care of them without a nanny/personal shopper/cook etc.

  7. kikistar says:

    Fortunately this one is better looking than his shanky mother and older brother. Don’t wanna be mean, I usually think all babies are cute, but not SPF! He looks like his cunt of mother, who has always looked retarded to me. Poor babies. I hope they won’t have issues of low self esteem or be on drugs later because they had such a bad mother. Other kids will laugh at them when they know who their mother is. She is completely IMMATURE! She had kids because she thought it was fun, not thinking about the consequences! What a dumb idiot. Those kids should be taken away! Poor kids.

  8. csue says:

    just fyi, for those noticing that jayden’s jacket is pink, it says in the captions that she dresses him in pink to “disguise him from the prying eyes”

  9. Jess says:

    Um, doesn’t it seem wrong to anyone else that she comes home pissed and drags her babies into bed with her? That seems super irresponsible and dangerous to me. I agree with Sandra, I don’t think that Britney completely grasps the concept of these babies being living things who depend on her. She just wants the fun stuff and none of the work. Which may actually be beneficial to them.

  10. Athena says:

    kikistar, you are right, SPF does look retarded. I’m not saying that to be mean ’cause i really don’t care one way or the other. Something is wrong with that child. Her youngest is cute though.

  11. Iva says:

    If things couldn’t get worse for Britney…now we find out what a truly bad parent she is.

    I cannot believe this woman comes home in the wee hours of the morning stinking of booze, cigarettes, and puke and then takes those children into bed with her! What is she thinking – does she have a working brain.

    OMG, someone get those kids away from her. Then to find out she sleeps all day – what do those kids do? Does she realize that this is their formative months/years??

    Where is this girl’s mother – for goodness sake, if Britney is so incapable, then where is the grandmother of these children.

  12. AC says:

    I think its sad no one tried to educate her before she had her babies. What kind of support system does she have when she didn’t even know anything about breastfeeding, or the little things that sometimes people like her don’t know. Why are people enabeling her to be so dimwitted.

  13. Viv says:

    If I came home shitfaced, I would know not to take my kids to bed with me, that would just mean 3 poopie pants to Brit’s nanny in the morning.

  14. JM says:

    I have two small boys myself, and can tell you she sounds like an incredibly shitty mother. Once you’re a parent, you do what’s best for the kids and not just what’s best/most convenient for yourself.
    I dunno all the details, but dragging 2 babies to Miami at midnight, then worrying not about feeding them, etc., but about getting a bikini for herself, is ridiculous.

    Don’t even get me started on the sleeping all day, partying all night thing! They are not stuffed animals, they are people!!!

  15. ER says:

    Brit’s a classic example of why some people shouldn’t breed!

  16. im tired of drag queens. says:

    both of her babies are cute.
    this story just makes me sad.

    its a weird thing…see, britney became as famous as she is by acting the same way she is now. her mother encouraged her, her fans encouraged her. its part of her identity. having kids does change everything. no wonder she is lost. i feel bad for her, and i hope she just gets away somewhere with her close help and gets her shit together.

  17. lilmerrysunshine says:

    What a suprise…the baby has “breathing problems”…maybe she smokes around him and it’s causing him to be sick. I also think the younger one has a hairlip or something because you never see a pic of his mouth and his nose looks crooked. M
