Kim Kardashian has had it with the mommy-shamers. After being criticized for having Saint in a forward-facing car seat, the mom of two addressed the issue in a video on her blog and basically told everyone to mind their own business.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star said that a photo of Saint in his car seat posted earlier this summer brought particular ire from the sanctimommy community.

Comments included, "he is so cute let's protect this handsome boy by making sure is rear facing," and, "Needs to be rear facing. Ossification of vertebrae doesn't happen until between 4-6 years. A one year old can be internally decapitated, which is almost always fatal, by just a quarter-inch stretch in their neck from an accident. Please rear face your children until they max out the seat, usually either 40 or 50 lbs."

Saint is 20 months old, and California law states that kiddos must be rear-facing until the age of 2 -- unless they are over 40 inches tall, or weigh more than 40 pounds. Kim explained in her video, "What people didn't know is that Saint is now the weight and height requirement to sit forward-facing. Saint actually weighs more than North, if that is believable."

In the same video, she also said that she has no "obsessive plans to build [North's] empire," despite claims that she's trying to make a mini-mogul out of her 4-year-old daughter. "I love her experiencing my life and what goes on. But I also love her having such a childhood life," Kim explained. "Whatever she wants to do I'll support that. No matter what it is."

Last month, Kim found herself defending the decision to put North in a dress with a lace-up corset. Since she and her sister enjoy cinching their waists so much, some fans actually thought she'd put her daughter in a real corset. Of course it was just a decoration, and totally suitable for kiddos.

But people are always looking for some way to judge Kim.
