Kim K. Warned by Doctors After Photo of Baby Psalm's Presumed Sleeping Conditions

Kim Kardashian is now being bombarded with concerned comments from doctors and social media users alike after she shared a photo of baby Psalm sleeping a certain way.


On Friday, the proud mom shared the very first photo of Psalm West, all cozied up in white. While Psalm looks very peaceful in his sleep, people were concerned over the unnecessary blankets, bumpers, and paddings that surrounded him. A baby being too warm while sleeping, or being too close to so many blankets could increase their risk of "SIDS," or "Sudden Infant Death Syndrome."

Concerned Doctors and Nurses

After seeing the photo posted by Kim, doctors and nurses began commenting on how dangerous it was to leave her son all bundled up in his crib, as this restricts his breathing.


One emergency room doctor even suggested that they should get an "overpriced sleep consultant" just to teach them a thing or two about properly caring for their newborn child.

Another doctor added that with Kim Kardashian-West's influence, it's dangerous for her to post photos like that because then other parents would think it's safe to bundle up their own newborns.


Every year, babies die of accidental suffocation due to sleep bolsters, bumper pads, loose blankets, and other articles that are placed in their cribs. Instead of keeping them warm, they actually pose a real threat to babies, especially those who move around when they sleep.

Avoiding SIDS

The risks of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome may be avoided by the following:

  • Using a firm and flat waterproof mattress that does not sink
  • Sleeping in the same room as your baby until they are a year old
  • Keeping babies' heads uncovered
  • Letting the babies sleep on their backs
  • Avoid letting the babies experience extreme temperatures. The right temperatures would be between 16 and 20 degrees Celsius
  • Avoid filling the crib with unnecessary blankets, pillows, bumper pads and bolsters.

Likewise, parents should also be vigilant about the things they do around their baby, such as:

  • Not smoking near the baby
  • Not sleeping right beside your baby

Welcoming Baby Psalm

Kim and Kanye did not respond to all the concerned messages of their followers, as they've been busy living life, caring for their four children. In fact, the mere reason for her post was to show just how blessed they are, with Kanye putting it as "they've got everything they need."

The Kardashian-West couple welcomed Psalm West, their fourth child, and second son, via surrogate. Earlier this May, it was reported that their surrogate was in labor, and that proved to be true.

A couple of days after, the healthy baby was welcomed into the family and is now spending time with everyone.
