She said in the post: ‘I’m struggling again with feeding this time around, so spending all of my energy trying to feed, eat, and rest.

‘Also seeing local breastfeeding specialists and the community midwives who have been incredible, so hoping for a more positive journey in the end this time but not putting pressure on myself.’

Stacey added: ‘Even though it makes me a bit sad. Whatever will be will be.’ 

The TV star documented her struggle with Rex back in 2019, saying at the time: ‘Breastfeeding never happened for me the way that I imagined. I did my best to try and master it, but it wasn’t to be.’

She confessed to feeling ‘like a failure’ for not being able to feed her newborn, and spoke candidly about losing bonding time with him. 

She wrote: ‘I felt like I’d failed & 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 was eventually able to come to terms with it, adding: ‘The truth is, I did my absolute best. Every baby is different.

‘I’m so lucky I have a few wonderful breastfeeding memories and some women don’t get that chance. I have an extremely special bond with Rex, one that would be there whether I breastfed or not, he grew in my tummy and we’ve known each other for a long time.

‘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.’
