She posted an adorable video of baby son Paul pulling funny faces as he sits comfortably in his car seat.

But now Sam Faiers has come under fire from other mums, who have berated her for supposedly using her baby's car seat incorrectly.

Former TOWIE star Sam posted the clip alongside the caption: “Words can't describe my love for you my baby... You make me laugh all day long.”

But furious parents were quick to point out that the swivel seat, which is usually used to help safely move the baby in and out of the car, was being used incorrectly.

According to the eagle-eyed mums on Sam’s Instagram page, the star has been known not to click the chair into place before using it during her ITVBe series The Mummy Diaries, and in Snapchat video posts.

“This isn't the first time she has been seen using the car seat, unfortunately incorrectly,” wrote one follower, while another commented: “She can't be that well advised when several of us have seen her use the seat sideways when it isn't meant to be (and the headrest is too high)!”

A third chimed in, writing, “Seats too big, the head support is around his temples! Should stay in the smaller seat until he's tall enough. He may hit the weight requirements but he's not tall enough.”

However, many other mums were quick to jump to Sam’s defence, arguing that the car wasn’t being driven when the video in question was taken.

One wrote: “The car isn't even moving! It's just a video of a seriously cute baby boy that's loved my his mom, you really think @samanthafaiers1 would ever put her little boy in danger just to post a cute video!!!!!”

Another added: “Let's stop all the hate towards @samanthafaiers1. She is a mother and knows what she is doing.”

And a third posted: “What is with you low life trolls? How about concentrate on trying to be a 'perfect parent' to your own child and not to others.”

Baby Paul will be celebrating his first birthday later this month with Sam and her partner Paul Knightley.

The reality star will soon be releasing a book about the challenges of motherhood, entitled, My Baby & Me: The Ups and Downs of Being a New Mum.
