Kim Kardashian trolls Kanye West
Everyone's Trolling Kim Kardashian Over This Car Seat Snap of North West
We're going to get real with you for a second. Motor vehicle injuries are a leading cause of death for children of all ages, so it's more important to get the whole car seat thing right and parents (understandably) get pretty persnickety when it comes to seat safety. So, in some ways, good ole Kim Kardashian was almost asking for it when she shared this seemingly innocent snap of North West and her buddy, totally puckered out after an exhausting day of pumpkin picking.
Besides the precious unicorn adorning North's perfect little baby cheek (can you even?) there's not much to see here, right? Wrong. That is according to Kim's 49.6 million Instagram followers.
The concerned commenters—4,517, to be exact—chimed in that the kids weren't strapped in correctly. Some wrote:
"If she gets in a car accident it could cause major damage to the child. it's called a chest clip for a reason.."
And,"Straps are way too loose and chest clips are not even in the proper position. Sad, Kim. That's your child's life."
Well, you get the gist.
Other mommies politely told strangers to BTFO, saying that little slip-ups are invetiable when you're a parent.
But, like we mentioned and as those Instagrammers were quick to point out, serious injuries or even —not just from buckle placement but also based on how you decide to face your child in the seat.
The CDC recommends that children should stay in rear-facing car seats until they are at least 2-years-old (24 months). And depending on their height and weight, they should stay in a forward-facing car seat until they are 5-years-old. If you're not sure when to make the switch, be sure to read your manufacturer's manual. Each car seat will have different guidelines.
In case you need a refresh, the below infographic from SafeCar.gov is handy.
Alright, Kim. Lesson learned?
Now, we leave you with these aforementioned pumpkin patch pics because...d'aww.
