Lucy Mecklenburgh says son Roman has been ‘poorly’ after opening up on motherhood

Lucy Mecklenburgh has revealed her baby son Roman hasn't been feeling too well as she's struggling to feed him.

The 28 year old, who shares the two month old with fiancé Ryan Thomas, took to her Instagram Stories to update her 1.7million fans about how her little bundle of joy has been doing.

Sharing a snap of herself looking at the camera as Roman appeared fast asleep against her shoulder, she told followers: "Post 5pm danger nap," with a face palm emoji, indicating that he might wake her up throughout the night as a result of his sleep time.

The former TOWIE star, whose 35 year old other half recently shared a sweet family picture of them wearing matching pyjamas, then explained that her newborn hasn't been feeling great on Tuesday 3 June, as she said: "But he's been Abit poorly today & has barely fed so he can do what he wants x".

Prior to sharing the adorable photo, Lucy posted a short statement telling people exactly what she thinks about being a mum. "Parenting Isn't easy or perfect," [sic] she started.

"it's sleepless nights, eating cold meals, having a 30sec shower, never ending washing, a daily dummy hunt, Puke & explosive poos all over their cutest baby grow & your favourite top, mentally & physically exhausting, uncontrollable tears, taking 2 hours to leave the house, endless worry & guilt".

"BUT It's also Unconditional love & happiness that I wouldn't change for the world," [sic] she continued with an emoji of the globe. Lucy added: "I can't imagine my life without u Roman," [sic] followed by a red heart emoji.

This isn't the first time the doting mum-of-one has candidly spoken out about the struggles of parenthood as she was recently praised for opening up on "long and lonely" nights and feeling "trapped".

The reality star shared a photo of herself cradling her baby boy as he laid on her chest while she held his dummy in her mouth.

Lucy, who was recently left mortified when her little one pooed during a live TV interview, wrote alongside the image: “Us at 4am* I adore my son, every time I look at him I can’t believe I made this perfect baby boy and when he smiles & laughs my heart bursts with love. [sic]

“BUT I’ve really struggled now for 3 months maybe heightened by lockdown. breast feeding I love & hate, it is wonderful for bonding but bloody relentless! Sleepless nights aren’t getting any easier there is a reason sleep deprivation is a form of torture …” [sic]

She explained: “I don’t want to post what looks like ‘perfect parenting’ but also don’t want to deal with dramatic headlines & online trolls for telling the truth!” [sic]

Reaching out to other new mums, Lucy bravely revealed that she has been left in tears with guilt and that she wishes she was shown how tough being a mother can truly be.

“Here’s the truth.. Nights are long & lonely, there are days I don’t want to do this anymore & just want a break but I have no choice as I breast feed him every 3 hours so I feel trapped & like my only purpose is a milk machine,” [sic] she explained.

Lucy added to her emotional post: “I’m so grateful to have a happy, healthy baby boy and wouldn’t change it for the world but motherhood is tough the tiredness, tears & mum guilt I don’t think I was fully prepared for and I wish more people showed the happy times and the tough times.” [sic]

She signed off by assuring other parents: “To all fellow mummas you are beyond amazing superhuman machines. This is for sure the hardest but most rewarding job that exists.” [sic]
