@bklynbridetobe:  Title aside because I don’t understand WTH she is saying by that, I am STILL trying to figure out if this pic was truly after baby because granted she posted it AFTER she had a baby, but no one seems to be able to say definitely that she took it after baby. Besides, I don’t see how that is even possible. I know its possible to get a body like that after having a baby with hard work, dedication, and time, but 4 days? I just can’t believe it at all. No way. Not toned like that.

@bklynbridetobe:  The title should be, “This is getting old”

I get it, we can crack walnuts on her ass and her breasts defy gravity, not to mention her rock hard abs are enviable…if posting selfies showing how amazingly awesome your body can be just four days after giving birth makes you happy, go for it….just don’t expect someone like me to care too much…its not like she taught her nation’s children how to read or anything…and where the hell is her kid?  You’d think she’d be more proud of the baby she made, not the factory after distribution….weird.

So this woman is more mad that Caroline didn’t post her baby’s picture, which to me is just ludicrous. Caroline is a fitness blogger– what does posting a picture of her baby have to do with fitness? Maybe she doesn’t want to expose her newborn child to the media. Maybe the baby’s sleeping and she didn’t want to wake the baby while she worked. Maybe she’s posted pictures of her baby in other photos. Maybe women still have identities as individuals after they give birth. But whatever it is, it’s none of your business, Rebecca Sparrow!

I’m sure Caroline Berg Eriksen expected some controversy when she posted this picture, but to bring up the fact she didn’t also take a picture of her baby is absurd. She also didn’t post a picture of her placenta– you know, that thing that also used to reside insider her body. Is Ms. Sparrow going to make a big deal out of that too?

I think this really just speaks more to the narcissistic vein that is Instagram selfies than it does about her or anyone elses’ fitness or eating habits. It was just a way to garner praise and attention, which if she needs it that much, no amount of crunches will help.

For the author of the article, it is only an “act of war” if you make it one. Don’t like attention deprived women who feel the need to post half naked selfies on the internet? Great, turn off the computer and take your mommy wars elsewhere. She is no better than Caroline, they both seem to have chips on their shoulders that they are trying to offload, just in very different ways.

@bklynbridetobe:  Ah ok. Thank you for clearing that up! I had only seen this story on a few different websites, but no one actually said if the pic was taken after birth.

At any rate if that’s what she’s proud of, fine. She’s a fitness blogger after all so she would post her body on there. I say who cares. I am neither offended or impressed.

@bklynbridetobe:  I agree with you. This woman regularly posts body shots– that’s what she does and that is her business. Is anyone really surprised she would post one after she had her baby? I don’t find the shock from those who are criticizing her now to be genuine.

I really don’t understand why this is making waves. She is a fitness blogger/model. She looks better than me before she gave birth than I do now. Her life is all about being healthy and fit. Good for her.

Also, I checked out her instagram. She does post pictures of her baby and she seemed like she was really excited to have her baby.

ETA: Also, there’s no headline that says, “What’s your excuse?” She’s no Maria Kang who is trying too hard. This lady is already famous in her country.

@MrsNewDay:  what war? If I post a picture of my car, am I declaring war on people who don’t have cars?

@SoupyCat:  +1, exactly.

Shoot, if this lady can get riled up on a fitness blogger who posts a picture of her body, I should be able to be riled up when I see a picture of someone with flawless skin.
