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 is probably best known for her appearances on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and for her social media presence.
Here they are together, looking incredibly adorable.
They have said they want more kids, but Kim has a dangerous condition called placenta accreta, which means the placenta attaches too deeply into the uterine wall.
According to 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.
She was doing something as simple as going for a drive with her son, Saint West, and somehow even that managed to cause controversy online.
Take a look at the picture she posted…

Can you see what might be wrong?
“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.
At least he’s in a car seat, right?
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.
“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…
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.
And if we’re to assume Saint is in California, which is most likely, a new California state law mandates children under the age of two must be property secured in a rear-facing child restraint system, unless the child weights forty pounds or more or is above forty inches tall.
Which means that Kim would have to switch him to a forward-facing car seat.
And to be honest, that’s probably the camp most people fall into.
