Maxwell Drew Johnson Bikini Photo: Too Cute or Too Soon?

by at . Comments

Jessica Simpson's diet and post-pregnancy body aren't the only reasons she's making news this week. Check out this new photo of her baby girl Maxi!

Yep, that's little Maxwell Drew Johnson, age four months, rocking a bikini. 

Jess revealed the pic on Katie Couric's talk show this week, immediately drawing criticism from some parenting groups who took issue with the image.

Kidscape called it "inappropriate" and implied that baby bikini photos like this one "contribute to the sexualization and commercialization of childhood."

Jessica Simpson, sexualization and commercialization do go hand-in-hand.

There's no question kids grow up too fast, but at the same time, can Maxi really be objectified at four months? Can mom have no fun dressing her?

We can see both sides. Tell us what you think below:

This is the most adorable picture that I've seen in a long time. What a sweetpea! And to those of you who have something dumb to say about it, STOP, PUMP THE BREAKS YOU FREAKING IMBACILES! I swear if its not one thing, its another tweeted blog of brainfarts disguised as overt concern for a child that is obviously and very much loved and cared for. ITS JUST A DAMN BABY BIKINI PEOPLE. NOT EVERYTHING NEEDS TO BE TRANSFORMED FROM SOMETHING SWEET INNOCENT AND SHARING INTO SOMETHING SICK AND TWISTED. HONESTLY, YOURE WAY TOO SENSITIVE ABOUT THIS OBVIOUS NON-ISSUE.MOVE AWAY FROM THE COMPUTER PLEASE!

Good Lord, people, get a life. She is a baby, not toddlers, and tiara's. How many of you have a naked baby picture in a bath tub or laying on a blanket. People make too much out of nothing.

I agree with Kim Weber that this picture is inappropriate. Totally agree that this picture is NOT flattering. I also agree 1000% this is NOT a cute look for a baby. AND I'M ALSO NOT A PRUDE>JUST VOICING MY OPINION>
