Stacey Solomon says getting up in the middle of the night to feed her two-week-old baby has left her feeling like a ‘zombie’.
The television personality welcomed daughter Belle, her fifth child, in February and has been documenting her newborn’s first days of life on social media ever since.

‘Determined to see some light tomorrow so hopefully I’ve seen enough today. How was your Wednesday?

“All the kids went back to school today and I didn’t realize how noisy the house was until they went back to school.
‘Even Belle was like, wide awake today, for the first time looking around properly. And I think it was because she was like, “Where’s the noise? Where has everyone gone?”
“But me and Belle and Rose got to spend some time together, but Rose took a nap, so I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, this is heaven!
‘And now I don’t usually look like this, I’ve put on makeup because it’s my father’s birthday, so I’ve tried to make an effort to go to dinner.
