New mum Sam Faiers has caused quite the stir by posting another picture of her... wait for it... breastfeeding.

Just 10 days ago The Only Way Is Essex star was citicised for posting a picture of her feeding her son Paul, with some Instagram fans even saying they were going to unfollow her - and now she's been receiving negative comments again after her latest breasfeeding snap.

Sam uploaded a picture of her looking lovely in a red bikini while feeding her son Paul on holiday. She posted alongside the picture a comment saying, 'Morning 👶🏼☀️☺️ #breastfeeding thankful 🙏🏼'

Despite covering her son's head with a muslin cloth and there being no breast revealed some of Sam's followers were quick to accuse her of 'attention seeking'.

One user, booboobramwell, said, 'Hey I look hot and I'm bound to get people talking and in the Daily Mail again' is not about promoting breastfeeding.' another follower, gemmanich, said that she was bored of Sam's breastfeeding pictures, leaving a comment that read: 'Yes we get the point from the first picture you deserve a medal! Yawn!'

However, other fans were quick to jump to Sam's defense at the same time. Kirstf78 said, 'I find it really sad that people have such negative things to say about something so natural and so lovely. I think everything about this pic is positive.'

A couple of weeks ago the new mum posted a picture of her feeding her baby son Paul, looking relaxed and happy, before a handful of her 1.5 million Instagram followers began commenting negative messages, questioning why she had to share the snap.

One follower tammyy0414 wrote, 'I'm unfollowing! Seriously why do people need to post this s***?! Yes, you breastfeed well done you, have a star! Cover it up or be private about it.'

Another user, mickydeeeuk, wrote that Sam was only posting the picture to 'definitely get attention for hersef,' while larniemoore89 said 'it's just not needed is it. Let's all get out t*ts out and post on social media.'

Despite the negative comments, plenty of Sam's followers again jumped to her defence, saying breastfeeding was 'beautiful' and 'wonderful'. One fan chanelbornroyalty said, 'Love when women breastfeed in public... Great job at helping to make this the norm. Beautiful,amazing pic Sam!'

In the sweet snap, 25-year-old Sam looked beautiful and content as she relaxed on a sun lounger while feeding her four-month-old tot.

Sam isn't the only celeb mum to support the right to breastfeed in public. Other stars have previously posted snaps feeding their little ones including Tamara Ecclestone, who often shares snaps of herself feeding daughter Sophia, and Giselle Bundchen, who famously posted a picture of her breastfeeding while having her hair and makeup done.

Sam has been regularly updating fans and followers on her breastfeeding journey since she became a mother a few months ago. She recently intrigued many when she posted a snap of lactation cookies to her social media feed. It turns out Sam's special cookies contain specialised ingredients that are thought to help maintain or increase the supply of breast milk.
