In June, a seemingly innocent photo Kim Kardashian shared of her then 18-month-old son, Saint, in his forward-facing car seat left the internet divided. Two months later, the reality TV mom is finally addressing the mom shamers.
“What people didn’t know is that Saint is now the weight and the height requirement to face forward-facing,” she says in a new 30-second video uploaded to her website. “Saint actually weighs more than North, if that’s believable.”
Some parents across social media originally criticized Kardashian for apparently ignoring the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommended guideline to keep children under the age of two in a rear-facing seat, unless they meet the minimum height and weight requirements of at least 40 inches and 40 pounds, something backed up by California state law, where the reality star and her family live.
Yesterday, West responded to critics in a 30-second video uploaded to her website entitled, Facts.
To be fair, plenty of other parents also came to her defense and told the internet to mind its collective business. And now that the debate over baby Saint West’s safety is settled once and for all, want to brush up on your car seat safety knowledge? Find seven basic car seat safety tips here.
