New moms often get inundated with unsolicited tips, advice, and even criticism -- and fitness model Chontel Duncan now understands that extends into the world of social media too. Is this a story of social media backlash gone too far? See the comments and judge for yourself.

The famous model and Instagrammer posted the photo below, only to receive hundreds of negative comments about the way she was holding her newborn.

In the photo below you can see Duncan's baby boy Miah upright against her chest with his head lifted up. Not everyone liked the way this was done though. 


Many commenters accused her of being too concerned with taking selfies to make sure he didn't lift his head this way -- which sometimes isn't safe for newborns. When Duncan replied saying that she just was holding her baby that way for a moment, her critics were not satisfied. 

Duncan reports in her Instagram caption that the comments and criticism kept coming in, despite explaining the situation. 

So the model decided to post this latest picture (featured below): a side-by-side to show how her son lifted his head for only a moment before putting it back down.
