The makeup-free star wore a New Look leopard print top as she pointed to an owl in her background for the first photo she uploaded to her Instagram story.

Kate captioned the image: ‘I miss my family. I miss my friends. I miss messing around on Instastories with you guys. At least I have Audrey the owl.

‘We keep each other company during nighttime feeds,’ (sic) she said before adding a thought bubble emanating from the owl and penny, ‘Her roots are horrible.’

She went on to document her nighttime food with Noa – who was born in February – when she revealed that a mosquito had landed on her face.

Kate took a selfie video and wrote, ‘A little mozzi-sounding cretin just landed on my face and I knocked it over in shock, but I put myself in the grid. Brilliance. ‘(sic)

The former Big Brother star covered her face with her hand and continued: ‘Now the light from my phone turned back on as I told you. I think he wants to get up my nostrils. No, thank you.’ (sic)

Kate also revealed that she finished feeding her baby just before sunrise.

She shared another natural selfie, saying, “ Finishing a night feed around 6am and trying to fall back to sleep in the summer is no fun. How noisy are the birds at the moment? [laughing face emoji](Sic)

“Pump fun,” Kate joked as she pulled her pajama top over her head and gave a weary expression before adding, “Which I broke down because Noa wants a snack.”

She snapped a picture of baby Noa sucking on her chest in a cute white baby green peppered with penguins.

Kate hasn’t had the easiest of times since welcoming her daughter and recently admitting she was “ at breaking point ” and in “ the darkest place. ”

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.

Earlier this month, Kate admitted feeling guilty for wanting to stop breastfeeding her daughter.

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

The radio host, who shares Noa with fiancé Martin, said she is considering switching to bottle feeding soon, comparing breastfeeding to “ a workout. ”

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.

“How noisy are the birds at this hour?” Kate then revealed that she finished feeding her baby just before dawn when she shared another natural selfie

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 feeding? It’s like a bloody workout. No wonder you burn up to 500 calories per feed! Hats off to anyone who has 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. ‘

Earlier this month, the first mom thanked her fans for their ‘love and support’ after sharing an emotional post admitting she was on ‘breaking point’.

Exhausted: 'Pump fun,' Kate joked as she pulled her pajama top over her head and gave a tired expression before adding, 'What I broke down because Noa wants a snack'

She said she was ‘overwhelmed’ by the response to her candid message after confessing that she felt like she ‘failed’ as she came back to trolls wondering why she shared a photo of her two dogs on Mother’s Day.

Kate took to Instagram and revealed that other parents messaged her saying they also felt like they ‘couldn’t admit’ how they felt.

Kate wrote a long caption saying, ‘At first I was afraid to post it because I was afraid I would be labeled insensitive or ungrateful, but THANK YOU, it was the right thing to do.

So many people have reached out, sending messages of love, support, advice and understanding. Just because you’ve chosen and been lucky enough to conceive, bear, and give birth to a little human, doesn’t mean it’s all sunshine and rainbows.

For some, it’s dark, stormy, and no parent should pretend to be okay if it isn’t. It’s okay to feel s ** t. ‘
