Sharing a photo of her breastfeeding her newborn while he’s snuggled in a baby sling, Ellie explained, “Today at the sling library! Can’t wait to take it out for a test drive”.

“Got a bit of mastitis”, she revealed, followed by a persevering emoji. “But it’s getting better now thank god”, Warner added. 

According to the NHS website, mastitis is a common condition in breastfeeding women where the breast can become swollen, red, warm and sore due to inflammation.
