"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.  I’ve tried and failed to resuscitate too many children that have died this way. Signed, an ER doctor," one Twitter user wrote.

Another added, "1. Congrats! 2. Anyone else freaking out about all the blankets & bumpers?! 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.”

According to the Mayo Clinic, Sudden Infant Death syndrome occurs when a healthy baby dies in its sleep. One of the contributing factors is thought to be suffocation from items placed in the crib, such as blankets and stuffed animals.

The reality star and Kanye, 41, have three other children, so it's highly possible they were aware of the risks and simply staged Psalm for a cute photo. The newest addition is getting a warm welcome from his siblings North, 5, Saint, 3, and Chicago, 16 months.

"All the kids are so excited for the new baby. It’s a very special time. Kim and Kanye are so happy. Four kids is the same as three in terms of how much they have on their plate. Their life is totally rooted in their family," a source told Us Weekly.
