Stacey Solomon opens up about neglecting her other kids after giving birth

Stacey Solomon is always open about the great parts and the not so great parts of motherhood.

The 29-year-old welcomed her third baby a few weeks ago and she has now opened up about how she is juggling a newborn and her two other kids.

She is mum to 11-year-old Zachary and seven-year-old Leighton as well as baby Rex.

The Loose Women star took to Instagram to post of a snap of her, breast pump in bra, as she palsy with her son Leighton.

Stacey captioned it, ''Knowing that my boys don’t bat an eyelid that I’m sat playing with them whilst milking myself, or that I have to whack my boob out every hour makes me extremely proud. Trying to get a bit of one on one time with my big baby today in between feeds.''

She continued, ''Feel like I’ve neglected the boys over the last few weeks trying to get into a feeding pattern. I haven’t managed to get into one yet (IS THAT NORMAL??). I’ve now got to the point where I can’t expect them to entertain themselves any longer. The fact that they’ve been so amazing and understanding has made it a lot easier for me but also meant the guilt has set in a little stronger because they’re just so bloomin good.''

She added, ''I really do need to get out of the house at some point in the near future too before I go stir crazy but honestly, the thought of having to wear actual clothes and interact with other humans is really daunting  When did anyone else leave the house after birth? Are 3 weeks too long? Send help...''

Her fans took to the comments to commend Stacey on her honest words.

One said, ''Never seen a more true or human page. In a world of Kardashian’s be a Stacey.''

While another wrote, ''It’s all totally normal. You’re doing brilliantly and your posts are so heartwarming.'' 

We love her frankness when it comes to parenting - its wise words we all need to hear.
