Chrissy Teigen, social media queen and recent mum to her second child is serving up yet another brilliant dose of parenting relatability in her latest Instagram post.

Most of her fans identified with the snap -and thanked her for continuing to use her huge social media following to normalise breastfeeding, but for those that took issue with it, she had this to say:
