Overnight stay in hospital

Later, a nurse saw to them and they waited for a doctor, with Kate telling fans her daughter seemed “in good spirits”.

After several nappy changes, a bottle and some breast feeding, Kate explained that doctors wanted to keep Noa in overnight.

She looks healthy so hopefully it’s a sign she’s responding well. Hopefully we can go home.

She said on her Stories: “We’re having to stay overnight as she’s too young to be sent home with antibiotics.”

Speaking further, Kate revealed they tried a number of times to put a cannula in Noa, but it wouldn’t work and the tot was “so distressed”.

Kate later revealed that Noa had paronychia, which is an infection of the skin around the nail.
