A passport does not state who the child's parents are, it simply states identity and citizenship. While Birth Certificates (to my knowledge, mine does) states who the mother and father of the child are. The agent wouldn't have been able to confirm parenthood from a passport.
WN has that a birth certificate is required for children under 2 in their policies:

Wrong. Government ID or birth certificate. Passport is most definitely a valid government ID:
From WN's own web site:
You must present a valid Government-issued I.D. providing age (child) or a birth certificate (infant) to the Customer Service Agent at the airport when you check in for your flight.
In your own quote I highlighted what you seem to be missing that it specifically says “or birth certificate (infant)”, so not just any govt issued I’d.
On WN’s website that I have already linked above under the traveling with infant section:
“A copy of the child's birth certificate is required to validate the age of all infants under two.”
Pretty clear cut IMO
It is pretty clear what the WN page says, at least on one place, birth certificate OR government issued identification. Perhaps you do not understand the use of or. Perhaps you ask an English teacher what or means. It does not mean the employee can chose what he/she chooses to accept.
