Stacey Solomon shares defiant picture post about breastfeeding in front of her sons

She gave birth three weeks ago

Stacey Solomon has shared a post about breastfeeding in front of her sons, to express how "proud" she is of them.

The 29-year-old welcomed her son Rex last month and has been in a baby bubble at home for three weeks.

Stacey revealed she has been trying to split her time between her newborn and her boys Zachary, 11, and seven-year-old Leighton, meaning she has to express milk for Rex whenever she can.

In the picture she shared, she is playing with Leighton as she uses a breast pump.

The Loose Women star said she has been trying to dedicate every spare moment to her older sons.

She told her followers: "Knowing that my boys don't bat an eyelid that I'm sat playing with them whilst milking myself, or that I have to whack my boob out every hour makes me extremely proud. Trying to get a bit of one on one time with my big baby today in between feeds. Feel like I've neglected the boys over the last few weeks trying to get into a feeding pattern."

Revealing she is yet to get into a pattern, she continued: "The fact that they've been so amazing and understanding has made it a lot easier for me but also meant the guilt has set in a little stronger because they're just so bloomin good."

Speaking of her desire to get out of the house, she added: "I really do need to get out of the house at some point in the near future too before I go stir crazy, but honestly, the thought of having to wear actual clothes and interact with other humans is really daunting 😂 When did anyone else leave the house after birth? Is three weeks too long? Send help... 🙏🏼."

Knowing that my boys don’t bat an eyelid that I’m sat playing with them whilst milking myself, or that I have to whack my boob out every hour makes me extremely proud. Trying to get a bit of one on one time with my big baby today in between feeds. Feel like I’ve neglected the boys over the last few weeks trying to get into a feeding pattern. I haven’t managed to get into one yet (IS THAT NORMAL??). I’ve now got to the point where I can’t expect them to entertain themselves any longer. The fact that they’ve been so amazing and understanding has made it a lot easier for me but also meant the guilt has set in a little stronger because they’re just so bloomin good. I really do need to get out of the house at some point in the near future too before I go stir crazy but honestly, the thought of having to wear actual clothes and interact with other humans is really daunting 😂 When did anyone else leave the house after birth? Is 3 weeks too long? Send help... 🙏🏼
