The reality star was snapped in a photo cooking breakfast with her brand-new baby close to her chest — and close to the stove! Is that safe for a newborn?

Kourtney Kardashian is a well-known health nut who prefers to eat organically and cook her own food, but this time she might have put her baby Penelope Scotland Disicknot even two months old, at risk!

Little sister and Instagram enthusiast Kim Kardashian shared a photo of Kourt and her baby to fans on Aug. 26.

“I woke up this morning to this…gotta love @kourtneykardash making breakfast,” she wrote.

But many of Kim’s followers were not amused, and pointed out that having a 7-week-old baby so close to a lit stove is dangerous!

“She has a baby in that next to the hot stove… Not so smart,” @milenka89 commented on Instagram.

@romirosen agreed, and wrote, “Slings are great, but baby needs to be higher up. She should tighten the strap and prop [the] baby up a bit (try a small towel or receiving blanket underneath her).”

Another user, @raniaajilat, pointed out the dangers of not only the hot appliance, but also cooking ingredients! “Yeah safe spot for the baby — oil splashes and then what?”

While some users came to Kourtney’s defense (and luckily baby Penelope wasn’t hurt), it got us thinking — is it really safe to cook with your baby in a sling that close to the stove?
