She wrote: “Sooo many DM’s about Roman’s sleeping bag. I love anything with animals on!

“He’s wearing 0-6m and it’s a 1.0 tog. Here’s the link.”

However, one person privately messaged Lucy and warned her against using the sleeping bag.

They wrote: “Please don’t put baby in that sleep bag. Let him be free! Plus it’s so hot right now.” [Sic]

“We’re going to a restaurant round the corner from where we live. We’re mum and dad out so yeah this is quite exciting.”

Meanwhile, earlier this month, Lucy voiced her frustration after discovering her baby son Roman had tongue-tie and a dairy intolerance.

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

“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.”

She added: “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.”
