Stacey Solomon has admitted she was “worked up” as she went to get her baby daughter weighed because Rex’s weight dropped 14% at this stage
Stacey Solomon has admitted she got herself “worked up” when it came to her new baby needing to be weighed.
Stacey, 32, gave birth to her newest arrival on October 4 – which is also her birthday. She’s been keeping her 4.7 million Instagram followers up to date with regular posts regarding her daughter.
And on Sunday evening she shared an adorable video of the tot wriggling about and yawning in her cot while Stacey fawned over her.
The clip had Tom Odell’s tune Real Love gently playing in the background and Stacey captioned it “Sunday and sunsets” .
She wrote alongside the sweet video: “It was weighing day today. I got really nervous, Rex’s weight day he was down 14% and it was all a bit traumatic.
“So I worked myself up a bit today… But she’s ok and well within the lines! So now my shoulders are finally down and I’m in bed, Rex is asleep next to me and I’m watching the sunset whilst watching her wake up & get ready for her night feeding party.”
Stacey then jokingly finished: “But I’m ready with ten pints of water and a giant dairy milk daim bar.”
Although the youngster is a week old, she still hasn’t officially been named by Stacey and her fiance Joe Swash.
The former X Factor star admitted that she wanted to call her Autumn until she realised her initials would spell out a rude word.
That, she said, helped the couple rule out any names beginning with the letter ‘A’.
“There’s a few we love so we are calling her those at the moment and seeing which one suits her the best I know that probably sounds silly,” she told fans.
The Loose Women panellist also shared some “sad” news with her followers over the weekend when she revealed she was struggling to breast feed.
She revealed that she has been seeking help from breastfeeding experts, after previously admitting to having difficulties when she was feeding her youngest son Rex when he was born and is now two.
Stacey wrote: “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.
“Even though it makes me a bit sad, whatever will be will be.”
