Kourtney Kardashian is in the hot seat for holding her baby girl Penelope Scotland Disick too close to a hot stove.
Kim Kardashian recently shared an Instagram photo of Kourt whipping up a healthy breakfast while carrying 7-week-old Penelope in a sling, but some of Kim's followers weren't impressed with Kourt's culinary skills or her need to keep Penelope close to her while cooking. According to Hollywood Life, one of Kim's concerned followers wrote, "She has a baby in that next to the hot stove… Not so smart."
This isn't the first time Kourt has been accused of putting her baby in danger - she was also criticized for dying her hair while she was pregnant with Penelope.
And she's not the only celebrity mom who has been criticized for her actions. Any time a star trots out their tots, the public is going to pay close attention to how they treat their kids. Here's a look at a few other celeb moms whose parenting skills have been questioned:
In 2008, this pop princess upset her fans by smoking right next to her then-two-year-old son Sean Preston. To make matters worse, the toddler seemed to be trying to imitate his mom when he opened up her pack of Marlboro Lights. Luckily Brit-Brit grabbed them before he could stick one in his mouth. But secondhand smoke wasn't her fans' only concern -- in 2006 Britney experienced a big backlash after she was photographed driving with Sean Preston in her lap.
The way celebs drive with their babies seems to be what garners the most criticism. A year after Britney's driving incident, Madonna came under fire for holding her son David in her lap while riding in the back of an SUV, and this year Beyonce faced a similar controversy for doing the same thing with her daughter Blue Ivy in NYC. Hopefully now baby Blue is the proud owner of a blinged-out car seat.
Some fans of this "Clueless" star probably thought they were in danger of losing their lunch when she posted a video that showed her spitting pre-chewed food into her son Bear Blu's mouth, but some experts think that this bird-like way of feeding can also be dangerous - various bacteria and viruses such as the herpes virus can be passed from mother to child. Plus Bear is going to be really grossed out when he grows up and sees that video.
So do you think that these celebs are bad mothers for putting their kids in danger, or do most moms make similar mistakes?
