Stacey Solomon Speaks Out About Mum Guilt

Stacey Solomon has admitted to feeling "gut wrenching mum guilt" since giving birth to Rex, her third son, in May.

The singer welcomed the baby boy with her partner Joe Swash, their first child together, and has been candid about the newborn experience.

In her most recent post, the 29-year-old spoke of her intense feelings of mum guilt. Alongside a selfie taken with baby Rex lying on her chest, she wrote: "I feel like I shouldn't really have these feelings because I'm nearly 8 weeks in and I am so incredibly lucky to have amazing children, a wonderful partner, loves loving, caring, & supportive family and I'm almost a bit embarrassed to say... That truth be told, I'm Having a bit of a gut wrenching day. One of those days that physically hurts your tummy. I have absolutely no idea why.

"Mum guilt has kicked in full swing. Nothing in particular triggers the feeling. It's just there. Tried to keep busy and organise the hell out of the house which has helped for short moments (but also felt guilty about it). So making a conscious effort to try to accept it and let the feelings come and go.

"I found this picture from a few days ago when I caught a rare snap of us both smiling at the same time (and when I'd miraculously found the energy to have fun with my make up drawer). I've been looking at it all day to remind myself that these feelings WILL pass and every day will be different. Thinking of anyone else having a struggle today or any day for that matter."

Stacey's post comes after she previously said she felt as though she'd "neglected" her older sons after giving birth.

She explained in a post on Twitter last month: "Trying to get a bit of one on one time with my big baby today in between feeds. Feel like I've neglected the boys over the last few weeks trying to get into a feeding pattern.

"I haven't managed to get into one yet (IS THAT NORMAL??). I've now got to the point where I can't expect them to entertain themselves any longer.

"The fact that they've been so amazing and understanding has made it a lot easier for me but also meant the guilt has set in a little stronger because they're just so bloomin good."
