Stacey Solomon, 32, revealed it was a big day for her newborn daughter today as the little one got weighed for the first time. The Loose Women panellist was emotional as she admitted being “really nervous” after previously suffering a “traumatic” experience with her and fiancé Joe Swash’s son Rex.
She told fans when he was born he had been 14 per cent down on his weighing day.
Stacey wrote on her Instagram story alongside a photo of her daughter: “It was weighing day today. I got really nervous.
“Rex’s weight day he was down 14 per cent and it was all a bit traumatic so I worked myself up a bit today…but she’s okay and well within the lines,” Stacey added alongside a crying face emoji.
“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 and get ready for her nighttime feeding party.
“But I’m ready with 10 pints of water and a giant Dairy Milk Daim bar.”
The Loose Women panellist explained on Instagram how she has been seeking help from breastfeeding experts, after previously admitting to having difficulties feeding Rex when he was born.
The situation made Stacey emotional two years ago and she has said she is experiencing a similar issue this time around as well.
Sharing a sweet photo of Rex smiling as he held some flowers for his mum and sister, while the newborn baby was seen wrapped in a blanket in the foreground, Stacey opened up to her followers in the candid post.
The TV personality 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.”
The former X Factor star also paid tribute to her fans for helping through these tough moments.

She wrote: “Your messages are just everything, especially on these days when the milk is coming in and the oxytocin is on its way out.
“I just wanted to say, I know these days can be the hard ones. Keep going. You’re doing amazing mummy.”
Back in 2019, Stacey documented her struggle with breastfeeding and how she felt a “failure” when she wasn’t able to feed Rex as a newborn.
She said 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.
“I felt like I’d failed and 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.”
Eventually, Stacey came to terms with the situation, and she told her followers: “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.”
Stacey welcomed her first daughter on her 32nd birthday, and is also mum to 13-year-old Zachary, and nine-year-old Leighton in addition to Rex.
