It must be hard to raise your kids in the very public eye. Every time Kim Kardashian posts a picture of one of her kids on Instagram, she ends up with whole posse of moms telling her why she’s a bad mom.
I’d probably spend most of my time crying if that happened to me, but it turns out that this time, they just might be right.
This Instagram photo she posted shows Kylie Jenner’s daughter Stormi and Kim’s kid Chicago in their too-cute matching pink walkers. “Happy Birthday to the sweetest baby girl Stormi!” Wrote Kardashian, “We love you so much!!!”
Yeah this little insta cuteness is beyond adorable, but lots of people are saying, rightfully so, that the girls are sitting in walkers that the American Academy of Pediatrics has come out completely against.
Kim Kardashian’s parenting is one of those things that people love to talk about.
Walkers like this bright stars pretty in pink walker are actually considered unsafe because not only does it impede kids from learning how to walk the normal way, but because it makes them faster and more mobile than they should be for their age, it’s also a major danger when it comes to steps and stoops for tripping and falling.
They aren’t wrong. The AAP wrote an article saying that over 8,500 children a year were treated in hospitals for walker related injuries, and over the course of several years 30+ walker-related deaths were reported.
If you’re looking for a good alternative, a push walker keeps kids safer, and also helps them to develop normal walking habits.
I mean, that serves the same purpose and keeps kids happy and healthy, so I am thinking go for it.
And as always, while lots of people were freaking out, there were tons of yummy fashion obsessed mommies that were just so excited to just have the same walker as a Kardashian.
