Kim Kardashian Mom-Shamed Over Son's "Pacifier" Dependence

Are people keeping up with the Kardashians too much?

To be fair, social media users are invited into almost every aspect of the reality TV star's life, and she doesn't seem to mind all that much.

Of course, as a social media personality, she's required to have tough skin. When people shamed her for asking her then four-year-old daughter to take inappropriate photos of her, the Kardashian didn't see the big deal in it.

She also brushed off critical comments slamming her for putting makeup on her daughter and straightening North's naturally curly hair.

But this recent Instagram post may have crossed the line, forcing the mom-of-three to quickly edit the caption.

This time, mom-shamers were quick to find fault in this picture of Kim walking with her daughter, Chicago, and son, Saint.

The mom was criticized for allowing her two-year-old boy to suck on a pacifier.

"What's Saint doing with a pacifier?" a top commenter questioned.

"Children shouldn't be using a pacifier past age 1, it's recommended that they don't use one even after 6 months."

Some users even criticized the Kardashian for allowing Baby Chi to leave the house without socks on.

"Baby Chi should be wearing at least socks since it looks kinda chilly."

After all the commotion, the reality star replied to a user that Saint wasn't sucking on a pacifier, but a candy, and even changed the caption of the picture from "Missing my babies!!!" to "Missing my babies!!!!! P.S. mom shammers (sic) it's not a pacifier, he's eating candy!"

But once the post note was added, the comments didn't get a whole lot better.

"Actually the pacifier would be better than the candy."

That being said, some people defended the reality TV star, saying that she shouldn't have to justify anything to her fans.

"Omg I can't believe all the opinionated perfect mothers. If it's a (pacifier), so what, if it's candy so what! Your kid, do you! They all grow up and become great people! My babies had a (pacifier) until they put it down and ate candy occasionally and both are great young adults! Get over your perfect parenting falsehoods."

"And if it was a pacifier? Nothing wrong with that!! Mine gave up on his own at 4."

This isn't the first time Kim was shamed for how she raises her son.

The 37-year-old celebrity was criticized for strapping her then-18-month-old son into a front-facing car seat, when in the state of California, children under the age of two are required to be strapped in rear-facing car seats.

"With all the paparazzi following you all the time you're at a bigger risk getting into an accident. Don't risk INTERNAL DECAPITATION or any other injuries if they could be prevented!"

What people didn't know was that Saint was the right height and weight requirement to sit in that position, which Kim had to clarify in another video.
