Sam Faiers has been praised by fans for ‘normalising’ breastfeeding and being a role model for young mums, after sharing an adorable snap on social media.
The former TOWIE star took to Instagram to post an adorable snap of herself in bed with her newborn baby girl and her son Paul.
In the cute picture, the mum-of-two is seen breastfeeding her tiny tot, with Paul keen to get in the moment and snuggle with the two ladies in his life.
Captioning the picture, Sam wrote: ‘Its 2 degrees outside ❄️ we aren’t going anywhere’.
The post, which she shared with her 1.9 million followers, resonated with many mums, who took to the comments section to praise Sam for ‘normalising’ breastfeeding.
One wrote: ‘I absolutely love this photo. You’re doing an amazing job of normalising breastfeeding, such a great role model for young women 🙌🏼 @samanthafaiers plus you look absolutely amazing 👌🏼’
A second commented: ‘This pic is motherhood in all its glory 💕 love the pad is on show 🙌🙌 normalising breastfeeding 👌’
A third also said: ‘Love how you’re normalising breast feeding and all the glamour of breast pads’.
It’s not the first time Sam has been candid about breastfeeding her children, often posting picture of herself doing it on social media.
Speaking about her wish to normalise it and make it easier for young mums to do it, Sam told The Huffington Post earlier this year: ‘I do want to normalise breastfeeding, I don’t know why people don’t think it’s normal.
‘I just don’t understand it because mums posts pictures of their babies with a bottle or a dummy so why should it be different for a boob? That’s what our boobs are for.’
Sam welcomed her second child a few weeks ago, taking to Instagram to announce that she had a baby girl with a cute family picture.
Sam is also mum to little Paul, who they named after his dad, the couple’s first child.
