In the three minute video shared to the TV show’s YouTube page the singer-songwriter was asked ‘What’s your biggest parenting fail?’

In response the Nantucket, Massachusetts native said: ‘We would take him on these walks out here in California, and I would come home and he would have these little red bumps all over him.’ 

The new mother said it happened for days before she contacted her son’s doctor.

‘I sent pictures to my pediatrician after like the third day in a row and I was like, “What’s going on? Like, I rub cream on him. I don’t know what this is.”‘

Whoops! 'I was boiling my son on my morning walks,' the 27-year-old mom revealed, referencing a heat rash

To her relief, the healthcare professional said it was just a heat rash. 

With a laugh she summarized her misstep: ‘So I was boiling my son on my morning walks, so don’t do that!’ 

The blonde beauty shares Riley with her husband of three years, Daryl Sabara, and the tot is the spitting image of her redhead spouse. 

In the Mom Confessions segment the entertainer also noted that her favorite part about her son’s infancy is ‘the napping and how cute he is.’
