A third chimed in: “Where’s her car seat???”
A following concerned fan commented: “This is against the law. It’s child endangerment and I hope there will be a cps investigation. Poor kid.”
The backlash continued as another person wrote: “It’s against the law for her to not be in a booster until she is 8. it could kill her. this is not about people minding their own business…it’s about seriously endangering this child’s life.”
Hilary shares daughters Banks and Mae, nine months, with husband Matthew Koma.
She gave birth to Mae in March, announcing the news with a sweet black and white family snap, writing: “Mae James Bair- We LOVE you beauty 3-24-21.”
Hilary had announced her pregnancy in October of 2020, after keeping the news under wraps for several months.
The Lizzie McGuire star is also the mother to son Luca, nine, with ex-husband Mike Comrie.
Backlash for Molly’s recent video is not the first time Hilary has been slammed for her parenting decisions.
She wrote: “Yes ! I pierced her ears today. Can’t wait for the internet to call me a child abuser…again. Lesss go.”
The singer’s caption was referring to the backlash she received in 2019, when she also pierced her older daughter Banks Violet’ ears when the tot was seven months old.
While sharing a photo of Banks at the time, the How I Met Your Father star said: “She has enough hair for a pony! Oh and yes we pierced her ears.”
Critics slammed her decision, with one comparing the move to “child abuse.”
Another upset fan asked why she would inflict “unnecessary pain” on a baby.
