Molly-Mae devastated but ‘determined’ amid breastfeeding blip as she can’t ‘get milk out’

Ever since becoming a first-time mum a few weeks ago, Molly-Mae Hague has been sharing her experience of motherhood on Instagram, including her struggles.

In her first YouTube video since becoming a mum, Molly-Mae, 23, explained that she had just been breastfeeding and pumping milk to feed Bambi, and that they hadn't needed to add formula to her diet.

However, this now seems to have changed as the new mum explained her recent struggles with not "getting any milk out" for Bambi.

The former Love Island star took to Instagram Story where she shared a photo of her holding an almost full baby bottle.

She captioned the photo: "Had a super low supply yesterday, literally couldn't get a single droplet of milk from me, for the first time we had to give Bambi some formula because she just wasn't sleeping from being starving / not getting enough breastmilk as my body couldn't produce (I think from being so exhausted).

"Was a really crap moment for me but I'm REALLY determined to not give up, hopefully it was just a bad day… just managed 4oz in one pump so that really perked me up."

She added: "Little wins."

She then added a question box where she asked her followers for "natural ways to keep your supply up".

In her recent YouTube video, Molly told her 1.7million subscribers that she was breastfeeding Bambi, both via nursing and pumping breast milk, so that her mum Debbie could help assist with the feeds and allow the young mum some much needed rest.

Although Molly-Mae herself seemed confused as to whether she was allowed to say she was “exclusively breastfeeding” since she also pumps, she did confirm that breast milk was all that her little one was eating, or would be fed for the foreseeable future.

Molly-Mae also admitted she had “not slept in two weeks”, something that many mums will surely be able to relate to.

This was especially true for the first week of Bambi's life, when Molly admitted: "from the minute I gave birth on the Monday night until day 5, I didn’t sleep a single hour.

"For the first week I ran completely off adrenaline, I made myself really quite unwell. Day 5 was 100% the hardest day of my entire life. I genuinely was scared for myself and my health."

Molly then added: "I’ve only felt in the last couple of days that I've started to get a grip of myself and feel, not normal – I am far from normal – but starting to remember to take care of myself and give myself breakfast and dinner, and have a shower and brush my teeth."
