She continued, ‘How come you have a really bad day every time you think you’ve turned a corner? She still smiled at us, made us laugh, but things really touched me today too.

“The pressure to have a routine and get her to sleep more makes me feel like a bad parent because we’re not there yet.”

The former Big Brother star continued, ‘I still wish I found this job easier and felt happier. Luckily I had the handsome one who sent me to bed and stays with her until 2am. I have to turn a blind eye.

Great love to all my new fellow parents out there. If you get it right, if you can’t get it right, stay strong. ‘

Little Noa has been hospitalized three times in three weeks since she was welcomed into the world, and Kate has documented their journey on social media.

The baby girl was rushed to hospital with a temperature of 38C and underwent a series of blood tests while battling Paronychia last month.

“It’s been the most challenging, emotionally draining and stressful three weeks of my life,” Kate revealed at the time.

Earlier this month, Kate admitted feeling guilty about wanting to stop breastfeeding her daughter, but said she is considering switching to bottle feeding soon, comparing breastfeeding to “ a workout. ”

The star told her followers that she finds breastfeeding ‘so demanding’ and is often exhausted afterwards.

Candid: “It’s been the most challenging, emotionally draining and stressful three weeks of my life,” Kate revealed at the time.

She wrote: ‘I’ve been doing a little over five weeks but I’m considering switching to bottle feeding because it’s so demanding and my disappointment is so quick that I basically bring Noa on board every time she holds the poor potato.

Kate explained that it was the “pressure from caregivers and others” that made her feel guilty.

She said, “Expressing for a few minutes beforehand helped. I know a happy baby is a fed baby, but the pressure from caregivers and others, along with my stubbornness, makes me feel guilty about quitting.

‘It just takes so much time and someone else feels exhausted after dinner? It’s like bloody workout. No wonder you burn up to 500 calories per feed! Hats off to anyone who’s been doing this for longer. Many of you have also said ‘get Boj (Martin’s nickname) to help’.

‘He’s been giving Noa a bottle of expressed milk every day since day one and currently stays up with her until 3am so I can sleep and then take over. I don’t know what I would do without him. ‘

Cute! Earlier this month, Kate admitted feeling guilty for wanting to stop breastfeeding her daughter, but said she is considering switching to bottle feeding soon, comparing breastfeeding to “a workout.”
