What did Lucy Mecklenburgh say?

The former TOWIE star explained that Roman was eight weeks old when she was told he had a cows milk intolerance.

Lucy wrote: "People asking how I knew Roman had something wrong with him. He had all the reflux and colic symptoms.

"Roman was gaining weight and seemed to breast feed okay as he always latched well with no pain for me. So tongue-tie was disregarded."

The new mother continued: "I used my mother's instinct to seek help from a feeding consultant who led me to a tongue-tie specialist then an allergy doctor.

"I knew something was wrong with my baby! And I was RIGHT! It infuriates me it took 8-9 weeks of him in pain to get answers."
