‘I felt like I’d failed’

After having Rex, now two, Stacey admitted that breastfeeding did not happen as she had expected.

She confessed: “I felt like I’d failed and that I’d lost the chance to have that special time and bond with Rex.

“I felt like everyone else was going to feed him and I’d lose my baby.”

However, Stacey did come to terms with the fact that babies can be different.

She also came to the conclusion that other methods could mean her partner Joe Swash figured more prominently during feeding.

Stacey said previously: “I love bottle feeding. It’s nice to share the feeding with Joe and our family sometimes too.

“They’re not stealing him away, just helping and bonding too.”

What is the name of Stacey Solomon’s baby girl?

Stacey and Joe’s new arrival was born last Monday (October 4).
