Almost a week ago, Summer Walker was the subject of Internet's criticism and mockery after she posted a photo of her newborn baby girl. And while this kind of negative criticism was sternly slammed by the 'Over It' songstress, it continues to draw concern from social media as her baby's health is being questioned. Walker shared a photo of herself holding her newborn in one arm, with the child's face covered with an emoji. And social media is not at all impressed by what she seems to be feeding her baby.

Walker's baby can be seen feeding from a bottle propped up against the singer's arm, as Walker poses for the camera, looking away coyly, clad in her undergarments. Walker's hair is down loose and it would be easily classified as your regular "thirst trap" if not for the mommy shaming that ensued on both Instagram and Twitter. But this wasn't regular mommy shaming either. Some Twitter users went so far as to chastise others for even laughing at the alleged 'skinny' nature of her baby. “This whole Summer Walker baby situation is not even funny. Is this not possible negligence? Why are y’all laughing," wrote one user. But there's ample reason that Twitter users feel the baby is "malnourished".

What is Summer Walker feeding her baby?

Singer Summer Walker who shot to fame with her song 'Over It' is now under social media scrutiny for what she's been allegedly feeding her baby. Although her numerous fans would rush to defend Walker citing it is all a joke, other followers on the singer's Instagram page have long condemned the fruit-smoothies with hemp seeds that she apparently has been feeding her child. These theories about Walker not adequately feeding her newborn stemmed from a photo she had shared on her Instagram which saw hemp seeds, raw honey, and mushroom powder as ingredients of a fruit smoothie, all placed next to a blender and a baby bottle. "Chile I’m praying for summer walker and her baby bc WTF is this shit?????" a Twitter user posted with screenshots of the images. 

Walker never confirmed if speculations about these being ingredients of her baby's food were true, but last year she did put moms on blast for feeding their babies formula. “Y’all weird for even giving babies that processed government s**t. Throw some real fruits/veggies in a blender and give it to them," Perez Hilton reports the Atlanta-based artist shared the time, further explaining "A pear [is] 43 cent, Similac is 32 to 36 dollars. I don’t understand. A bowl of fruit for the child would still cost less than formula for the week. To feed the child daily $1.67, Meal 1 pear 43 [cents], Meal 2 apple 74 [cents], Meal 3 peas 50 [cents], $11.69 weekly. And they drink water so it’s cheaper. $23.38 for 2 weeks.”



Is the diet safe?

Social media has however since pointed out the many harmful impacts some of these ingredients can have on a newborn. Perez Hilton reported how many accused "the starlet was feeding her baby honey — which, as many parents know, is one thing babies younger than 1 should NOT be given to eat, as it can cause infant botulism." One Twitter user posted "Someone needs to take that baby away from Summer Walker. She is literally starving that child and feeding it things that it cannot consume at their age… the baby’s legs are so skinny…” said one of the many flocking to comment on the baby's small size.

Several users commented, "Summer walker baby looks really small for 2months. I noticed that about vegan kids. I had a friend who 1 year old was fed vegan from like birth and he was small for his age but very playful either way I still think she needs to feed the baby more because her legs are skinny as." And the rest joked, "Summer walker got too much money to be feeding that baby ant food Im calling CPS" Another condemned Walker's parenting skills, writing "from a person who has worked in child care and has seen how malnourished babies develop i literally cannot begin to engage w the summer walker stuff".

Walker then clapped back at this, writing on her Instagram stories, “Y’all: ‘POST THE BABY B***h. WE WANNA SEE!’ Also Y’all: Roasting a baby [whose] face you can’t even see. Make it make sense.” She added, “In conclusion, [motherf**kers] is weird and I will never post my baby so stop asking.” But social media is simply not having it as people are now chastising those that have been laughing at the situation, writing, "Y’all in the comments talking about “use common sense obviously she wouldn’t feed her baby that” clearly have never heard anything summer Walker has said bc common sense is one thing she does not have."
