KAILYN Lowry faced backlash from fans after she was spotted strapping her one-year-old son Creed in his car seat incorrectly.
The Teen Mom 2 star has raised controversy over her parenting skills after her recent custody fight and emotional breakdowns.
Kailyn, 29, took to Instagram this week to share a video of her four sons and a friend as they left the house on an outing.
The reality star showed all five kids piled in the back seat, with her two youngest Lux, four, and Creed, one, strapped into their car seats in the middle row.
The TV personality captioned her shot: "Kail and the Chaos + 1", as she joked about her busy life as a mom of four.
However fans were not as impressed, as one in particular re-shared the photo to their own page, @teenmom.tea.
The user slammed Kailyn by writing: "Don't want to 'mom shame' but I doubt her newly 1 year old is above the weight and height requirement to front sit."
They added the statement: "In other news, fans are wondering why Kail has creed front facing already 🤔," to the caption, inciting anger in the comments section.
"CAR SEAT SAFETY IS NOT A PARENTING CHOICE. THINK she’d know that by her fourth kid," one ranted.
"I truly believe you can’t 'mom shame' when it comes to safety. Property car seat safety isn’t a parenting choice" another agreed.
A third reasoned: "Its not mom shaming, it’s flat out unsafe," while a fourth contributed: "I worked in a baby store all throughout college. You are right.
"It is recommended for a child to rear facing until 2. It is wayyy safer during car accidents," they continued.
"The weight does not even matter, it is truly about the height and I doubt he is over 4ft."
CAR SEAT SAFETY
The Sun previously released a 2019 survey compiled by OnePoll for the car manufacturer SEAT, which highlighted 10 rules for car seat safety and the risks of not doing so.
SEAT explained that parents should always "use a certified child seat according to height and weight" and "always use the rear seats rather than the front."
The child must be "fastened in the seat correctly" with the straps "tightened on the harness."
Parents should ensure that their child remain "facing the rear" of the vehicle until age two, with "no exceptions made" even during "short trips."
Incorrectly following car seat safety rules or completely disregarding can have devastating consequences.
In a 30mph collision, the injury sustained by a child weighing 18lbs who is thrown from a seat is similar to falling from a three-story height.
Kailyn's son Creed, who celebrated his first birthday on July 30th, was indeed sitting forward-facing in the since-deleted photo.
This was not the first time the TV personality has faced issues regarding her parenting skills.
Late last month the MTV star had a meltdown as she felt the "stress" of raising four young boys.
While filming her Baby Mama's No Drama podcast alongside her co-parent Vee Rivera, she had an outburst.
"Are you stressed today baby mama?" Vee asked.
Kailyn responds, shouting out "A little! What the f**k!".
The young mom then explained her concern over frequently losing her train of thought, which she attributed to the trauma and stress she has experienced.
