Last week, Kim Kardashian revealed that she’d welcomed her fourth child via surrogate.
While Kim Kardashian West could not wait to announce the joyous information on Twitter, added information was slow to arrive.
After a few days of waiting we know that Kim and Kanye have called the boy Psalm West.
From that point, it was a much longer wait until we got our very first pic of this little tyke.
Now, Kim and Kanye are past the point of having to score a money back from Folks magazine or any such socket by promoting the pics.
Rather, Kim merely published a screenshot of a text dialog using’Ye that contained a pic of small Psalm:

“Beautiful Mother’s Day with the arrival of our fourth child. We are blessed beyond measure. We have everything we need,” Kanye texted his wife.
Needless to say, Kim couldn’t have picked a much sweeter moment to share with the world.
Unfortunately, the photo was not well-received by everyone who saw it.
And if you’re a parent, we probably don’t need to tell you what the chief complaint was.
Each year, sudden infant death syndrome claims roughly 2,500 lives in the US.
And all too often, the cause is excessive pillows and blankets in a newborn’s crib,
“Please please please go pay an overpriced ‘sleep consultant’ to get all that unnecessary padding, bumpers, and blankets out of your child’s crib so they are not at risk for SIDS,” one fan commented.
“I’ve tried and failed to resuscitate too many children that have died this way. Signed, an ER doctor.”
“1. Congrats! 2. Anyone else freaking out about all the blankets & bumpers?!” another remarked.
“American Academy of Pediatrics recommends keeping the crib free of blankets & pillows until baby is 12 months old, as these can create a suffocation hazard. @kanyewest Just looking out for a fellow dad.”
“I really hope Kim and Kanye only used the cushion thingie for the pic,” a third echoed.
“Wish they had photographed wee Psalm lying flat and swaddled in an empty crib.”
Like we said, this is Kim and Kanye’s fourth child.
Not only do they have a whole lot of experience with babies, they also have a strong support network and all the help money can buy.
They may feel that because Psalm is so closely monitored it’s okay for them to ignore common sense advice.
But 1. Why take that chance? and 2. Even if Kim and Kanye have a foolproof system in place, it’s a little irresponsible to send a message to tens of millions of people that this is an acceptable way for an infant to sleep.
