‘Most of these people have a ton of money to be able to afford someone to do everything for them!!! You’re doing fabulous.’ 

Last week Dani opened up about being unable to breastfeed her son due to him suffering with tongue-tie.

She posted the news about the condition where the strip of skin connecting the baby’s tongue to the bottom of their mouth is shorter than usual on Instagram.

Sharing Louise Thompson’s post, Dani wrote: ‘Thank you @louise.thompson for posting this!! Some of us try to breastfeed but difficulties get in the way!’

She continued: ‘My recovery didn’t go to plan and Rowan had a tongue tie which led to us having to bottle feed! A happy healthy baby is what’s important.’ 

The former Made In Chelsea star, 31, described in her own post about how she felt ‘too ashamed to say no’ to breastfeeding while in ‘excruciating pain’.

It comes after the actress, who is already mother to daughter Avarie-Belle, five, revealed she had been diagnosed with gestational diabetes.

Dani posted a photo of her daily blood glucose log book as she asked her followers for their advice.

Gestational diabetes is high blood sugar that can develop at any time during pregnancy but is more common in the second or third trimester, usually disappearing after the baby is born. 

She penned: 'Not quite how I wanted to end this pregnancy but super glad we found out when we did! Newly diagnosed gestational diabetes so any tips are welcome!'

Tongue-tie (ankyloglossia)

Tongue-tie (ankyloglossia) is where the strip of skin connecting the baby’s tongue to the bottom of their mouth is shorter than usual.

Some babies who have tongue-tie do not seem to be bothered by it. In others, it can restrict the tongue’s movement, making it harder to breastfeed.

Tongue-tie is sometimes diagnosed during a baby’s newborn physical examination, but it’s not always easy to spot. It may not be obvious until your baby has problems feeding.

Signs of tongue-tie

To breastfeed successfully, a baby needs to latch on to both the breast tissue and nipple, and their tongue needs to cover the lower gum so the nipple is protected from damage.

Some babies with tongue-tie are not able to open their mouths wide enough to latch on to the breast properly.

Treating tongue-tie 

Treatment is not always needed, if your baby has tongue-tie but can feed without any problems. If their feeding is affected, treatment involves a simple procedure called tongue-tie division.
