Jessica Simpson recently appeared on Katie Couric’s talk show, to show off her post baby weight loss, but it wasn’t her weight that caught the attention of a child welfare group. Uh oh, what did the Fashion Star mentor do?
Jessica Simpson sure is enjoying motherhood, but maybe a little too much?When Simpson appeared on Katie Couric’s talk show to show off her weight loss, the designer decided to show off a picture of her new daughter as well – in a bikini! When Simpson shared the picture of 4-month-old Maxwell donning a yellow knit bikini over her diaper, the web went crazy with negative comments, including one British child welfare group.
The group, called Kidscape told the Daily Mail: “It is very disturbing to see a young baby presented to the world wearing a bikini. Celebrity choices carry great influence, as can be seen by the manner in which their accessories and manners are copied widely.”
While most of us may see it as innocent, and just a mother having fun dressing her daughter, the group does not agree. They went on to explain: “It is hoped that parents will understand that ‘baby bikinis’ are totally inappropriate and that they contribute to the sexualization and commercialization of childhood. We should not be compromising the sanctity of our children’s early years.”
Now, it’s your turn to sound off! Did Jessica Simpson dress her daughter inappropriately? We know you have an opinion, and we want to hear it. Comment below to share your thoughts with us on this controversial issue.
