Kim Kardashian Fires Back at Mom Shamers Taking Issue with her Son's "Pacifier"
Kim Kardashian's latest mommy-and-me Instagram post is drawing some ire from her followers. According to the Today show, Kim's latest photo shows her walking with Saint and Chicago. Her daughter is in her arms and little Saint is walking alongside her. It's cute, until the comments section started lighting up with criticism over his pacifier.
Internet moms took issue with the fact that Kardahsian is allowing Saint to use a pacifier at age 2. After the initial backlash, Kardashian amended her caption, noting that it was actually candy, not a binky. But to make matters even more ridiculous, Instagram users piled on, criticizing the mother of two for letting her son have candy. There's no way to make everyone happy and Kim found out firsthand.
"Missing my babies!!!!! P.S. mom shammers [sic] it’s not a pacifier, he’s eating candy!" the caption now reads. Hate or not, the post still racked up over 3 million Likes.
"Children shouldn’t be using a pacifier past age 1, it’s recommended that they don’t use one even after 6 months," one comment read.
The comments weren't all malicious, however. Some came to Kardashian's defense, offering words of support. "She should be able to post the picture of her children and not have to panic and defend herself on how she wants to parent," a fan wrote.
That didn't stop people from pointing out more to criticize. Instagram users pointed out Chicago's bare feet, had choice words about Kim's monochromatic outfit, and the fact that she had left her babies to travel. Of course, Kim's been facing critics from the very beginning. Clapping back is Kim's game and she's not afraid to do it, even if it means facing the internet's angry moms.
