She continued: "Hasn't been the easiest week! Horrendous food poisoning, extremely HOT especially for a baby, milk supply has dropped & me & Roman are both stressed, frustrated & tired.

"I'm not ready to stop breast feeding & refuse to quit on a bad day so this is a step towards getting my supply up," with a praying hands emoji.

After being inundated with messages, she later updated her fans as she said: "Thankyou for all the lovely supportive DM's & for the great advice." [sic]

Lucy, who recently revealed the key to parenting with her fiancé Ryan Thomas, went on to explain that her son gets very frustrated while feeding and tends to "bite" her.

She said: "To answer a lot in one go. Yes I'm feeding him on demand but every feed involved roman biting & getting very frustrated, lots of skin to skin, lots of water (well cordial as i haven't been able to stomach water since pregnancy) [sic]

"I have oats most days & yes I'm giving power pumping a go. But REST is a tough one haha!

She said: "*im not anti fomula before I get those messages. This is just my journey I want to share the highs & lows". [sic]
