Sharing some pictures of herself breastfeeding Aurelia, who was three months at the time, along with a lengthy caption to express her feelings on the matter, Millie said: ‘My breastfeeding journey with Aurelia recently came to an end, at first I had mixed feelings about stopping but now a few weeks have passed I know that for us it was the right time.
‘I really felt the pressure during my first round of mastitis to continue feeding.
‘After mentioning it on social media I was flooded with messages and although there was a lot of support with people sharing different remedies that could help, I really felt the pressure to just keep going even though I was literally crying in pain every time I needed to feed.
‘There was one comment that really stuck with me, “it’s ok to stop too, it doesn’t make you a bad mum” at the time I really needed to hear that.’
She continued: ‘I started to combi feed and whilst it worked for us for a while, and I loved the bonding time, ultimately when I got mastitis again I decided breastfeeding wasn’t working for me anymore and I knew it was time to stop.
‘I was in a lot of pain, I really wanted my body back, my time back and Aurelia was really unsettled which I found upsetting and frustrating.

Fellow MIC star Ashley James has also spoken out about her breastfeeding journey – and revealed how she described how she overcame her concerns and the stigma attached to breastfeeding in public.
Taking to Instagram she wrote: ‘Breastfeeding was something I was slightly apprehensive about because I’d heard it was challenging, but also because my boobs are SO big I felt like I couldn’t get away with subtle feeding in public.
‘I know there’s so much stigma and judgement around breastfeeding anyway, and the thought of having to get a boob bigger than my baby’s head out was a terrifying thought. That said, it was also something I felt quite passionate about trying to do.
‘I found the first few days really difficult to get Alf in a good position. Between the stitches, and the size of my boobs making a lot of positions quite difficult to master…

‘Plus I had a 250g lump removed from my left boob when I was 15, so I didn’t even know if I could breastfeed from that side. I was worried Alf wouldn’t get back up to his birth weight, as was my midwife.’
Ashley said she hired a lactation consultant to help her master breastfeed positions.
She continued: ‘On days 3&4, my boobs were incredibly painful as the milk came in. One boob was so engorged, Alf couldn’t even feed off it so we used the @haakaa_ukandireland and massaged my boobs and it’s been pretty smooth sailing since.
