Love them or hate them, it seems a Kardashian is in the news every day for some reason or another. Today is no exception, and this time it's just a picture of her son Saint that has the Internet up in arms.
Kim Kardashian needs no introduction, but just in case...
Kim and rapper Kanye West currently have two lovely children, daughter North and son Saint.
Last week Kim and Kanye announced they will be having a third child, but using a surrogate.
It could actually be life-threatening for Kim to carry a third child to term, so a surrogate was apparently the best way for them to go.TMZ, the couple has used an agency and already found that lucky uterus. But even that decision — a very personal decision — was trolled by people who thought it was their business what Kim did or didn't do with her body.
But in the meantime, Kim is carrying on with her life.
Sippy cup? Check. Cute shoes? Check.Reasons for people to flip out? Check. Can you see what might be wrong?
While many commenters pointed out how cute Saint is, others voiced concerns about the safety of his car seat setup ― specifically the fact that the toddler appeared to be front-facing."It actually is safer to keep him rear facing as long as possible. Nobody would question the 'car seat police' if they did a little research into internal decapitation," another one wrote.
Some commenters poked fun at everyone freaking out over the seemingly-innocent picture.At least he's in a car seat, right?
Well, apparently that wasn't enough for everybody.Even though there are different height and weight requirements depending on the seat and depending on the child, people criticised Kim's parenting to no end.
Why so angry?“It’s illegal to have a child facing forward in California that is less than 2 years old. Please turn his car seat around, it’s not too late!" added another. But there were also those who came to her defense...
Many people thought that as long as the car seat was secure, he was safe.Technically speaking, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children remain rear-facing in their car seats until they reach the age of two or until they reach the maximum height and weight for their seat.
Car seat laws also vary from state to state.
