Millie Mackintosh answers questions about newborn Aurelia

Millie Mackintosh fans have praised the star for being open about her breastfeeding struggles.

The Made In Chelsea star, 32, revealed she stopped breastfeeding her three-month-old daughter Aurelia after she developed severe mastitis.

This condition causes inflammation and can lead to an infection of the breast tissue. Often, the person is faced with severe pain as well as swelling, heat, and redness of the area.

Millie admits that every time she tries to feed her daughter, she “cries in pain”.

The mother-of-two also shares daughter Sienna, two, with former TOWIE co-star Hugo Taylor and she has posted pictures of herself with her youngest daughter on Instagram.

For a split second, the reality TV star was in tears trying to feed her baby, before another showed her holding a pack of frozen peas to her chest to stop the pain.

In a lengthy post, Millie told her 1.4 million followers how her breastfeeding journey ended, bringing up mixed emotions.

She wrote: “I really felt pressured during my first mastitis to continue breastfeeding. After mentioning it on social media, I was flooded with messages and despite a lot of messages. many advocates share different remedies that can help, I really feel pressured to continue even though I literally cry in pain every time I need to feed.

“There was one comment that really stuck with me, ‘it’s okay to stop, that doesn’t make you a bad mother’ when I really needed to hear it.”

She opened up about trying to feed but revealed she once again had to stop when the pain became unbearable.

She continued: “Now that Aurelia is purely formula, there was a bit of resistance at first while we found the right bottle and nipple sizes, but now she is feeding well and we I am in good habit.

“I still love her feeding time, she grips my fingers, pulls me close and stares into my eyes, I still feel just as important to her.”

Millie said she takes her hat off to those who continue to fight through the pain, calling the experience “one of the hardest things I’ve ever done”.

And a third said: “I couldn’t agree more with what you said! I have 3 kids and I’ve been trying to breastfeed exclusively, this doesn’t come naturally to me and the really me and my kids were the happiest when the bottle came out and it was okay. Well done buddy.”
