After sharing a pic of her newest addition to the family, son Psalm, Kim Kardashian got a lot of criticism both from her many fans as well as from medical specialists! The reason why the KUWK star was mom-shamed was that she apparently put the newborn at risk of SIDS!
The photo shows baby Psalm sleeping on his back, all snuggled up in blankets and wearing a hat.
While some fans gushed over how cute he is and others mocked Kim and Kanye’s choice for a name, others were actually worried the parents put the newborn under the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS!)

Here are a few of the reactions: ‘You’d think after four kids she would know to lay the baby on his back with NOTHING else in the crib.’ ‘Disaster for SIDS!’ / ‘FYI: You MUST take all that crap out of the crib and allow your baby to have a safe sleeping environment. This is cringe-worthy at best and a SIDS trap at its worst. #SafeSleep Should be your choice. Not best optics.’
But the fans were not the only ones worried.
Pediatrician Dr. Jen Trachtenberg took to Twitter to write: ‘I just want parents to know the best way to reduce the risk of SIDS is to sleep on back, use firm crib mattress – no blankets, pillows, bumpers, soft bedding, sleep positioners, plush toys…’
She went on to mention that, Kim has a responsibility towards her following to do the right thing since many might see the cute pic and think of replicating the sleeping situation with their own babies.
