Lucy Mecklenburgh has opened up about stopping breastfeeding her son Roman, 19 months, and said it is making her feel 'low'.
The star, who shares her son with former Coronation Street star Ryan Thomas, wrote about her ordeal on her Instagram stories.
Lucy, 30, said: "I'm also 4 days no breastfeeding! Which hasn't been easy but I'm really trying to commit to it and not cave.
"I've read that it can make you feel quite low and to be honest I think maybe that's the case for me. Maybe a little guilty too as he doesn't understand why he can't have it any more."
Lucy signed off her message with a crying face.
The news comes weeks after Lucy opened up about a scary ordeal in which Roman was rushed to hospital after she found him looking 'blue' in his cot.
Roman is now required to take an inhaler twice a day after his scary hospital dash, which saw Roman spending time in St Mary's London intensive care unit on a ventilator before returning home.
On her Instagram story, Lucy shared a video of her son Roman playing with his inhaler with an added aero-chamber, which makes it easier for children to use.
Speaking from behind the camera, Lucy explained: "Just trying to get him used to his inhaler. He has to have this twice a day now," she said. "But, he doesn't like it."
And recently, when asked in an Instagram Q&A about how her adorable toddler was doing now, the 30 year old reality star said on Wednesday: "He's really good but now has chicken pox."
Sharing snaps of Roman's leg, feet and hand, Lucy explained: "They're everywhere but quite mild and not bothering him too much though. He's a tough little boy."
Lucy also revealed she had been flooded with questions from parents asking about her experience so they can look out for the signs.
She wrote a lengthy post explaining the ordeal on her Instagram story. It read: "I completely understand and don't want any parents to worry every night."
Lucy went on to explain her son had a "viral-induced wheeze" and had woken up with "a slight cold in the morning" in a couple of occasions.
She added that he also occasionally "had a little wheeze by lunchtime" and added the pair previously went to A&E after he was "struggling to breathe" as she noticed "his chest is sucking in & working really hard".
Mum Lucy then explained: "We are usually out by the morning after the nebuliser, oxygen and steroids and monitoring over night."
"When I heard very quiet cry's of distress At around 4am I went in his room. He was blue/grey, floppy when I picked him cup, in and out of consciousness & sick in his mouth.
"I called 999, cleared his mouth and have him his inhaler. I wish I could say I stayed calm, but I really didn't."
