Katherine Heigl posted a photo of her son in his car seat, what she never expected was the mummy police to attack!

Sharing her tips to save new mums time, the celebrity best known for her role on “Grey’s Anatomy” shared some of her baby must-haves.

“Every parent has a few favorite baby products they just can’t live without … and I’m no exception!” Heigl wrote on Instagram.

The actress posted a throwback of her now 14-month-old, baby Joshua Jr. in his car seat.

Unfortunately, some parents couldn’t help but point out that Joshua Jr. wasn’t in the car seat as safely as he could be, drawing attention to his chest clip.

“Not to be ‘one of those people’ but the chest clip really needs to be at armpit level!” wrote one user.

“Is no one else commenting on how his chest clip is too low and not tight enough?!” wrote another.

“You’ve just got to do your research on these chest clip things it’s just not needed at all from what I’ve read here in the UK they’re illegal.”

“How do you know it wasn’t pulled down to take pictures? I’m sure she’s got it under control,” one commenter questioned.

When Kim Kardashian West posted a sweet picture of her son Saint in his car seat, she also never expected the photo to ignite a massive debate in the comment section. Read that story HERE.

  • Too many people are out to nit pick everything


  • Cute photo. In this day & age, there are too many “judgey” keyboard warriors!


  • It’s just a cute photo of a beautiful boy.


  • Some people have too much time on their hands it seems. That is a lovely little photo.


  • People really need to mind their own business. Did the post ask for their opinions on car safety?


  • Oh for god sake get a grip on urselves ladies instead of being judge @ jury wouldn’t it be much nicer to say oh how adorable!Im pretty sure his beautiful mamma has the lads car seat under control!Lolz


  • Can’t we just love a photo for what it is? I just see a cute, adorable face – nothing more, nothing less!!


  • parent judging keyboard warriors are my favourite :/


  • I can’t believe that people feel the need to comment on a picture – particularly for things like this. It is a second in time, not necessarily the way the child is in the seat all the time.


  • I guess in some cases the people commenting are trying to help because of their concern for the baby. Some are just nasty trolls


  • The photo is just so adorable!


  • It’s sad how people like to criticize and judge. But when comments are kind of asked for and people give their honest opinion, you can chose to take the comment on board or lay it aside.


  • I suppose there’s a value in pointing things like this out in case people copy it Inappropriately. But still…


  • I am all for sharing information that may be helpful to know in relation to safety, but it’s how it is said that is the problem. Adults are just as bad, if not worse when it comes to bullying, yet somehow its “ok” for us harshly and even cruelly “tell” others what we believe they are wrong about.
    Australia has some of the most stringent and tested safety for car seats, yet we can still get it wrong.
    Inform, but don’t critique or judge.


  • When a celebrity posts something on social media, she/he is bound to know that a lot of people will be there, ready to criticize. :-(
