Rochelle Humes has revealed that she stopped breastfeeding her baby son Blake when he was nine weeks old.

In a conversation on Instagram, the singer made the admission that after trying for almost two months she decided to move on to formula feed instead.

It was during a fan Q&A that one follower asked: "Are you still breastfeeding? No judgement! I don't know if I want to and I just wonder."

Rochelle was open in confessing that breastfeeding her son had been a "struggle" and that she felt a lot of pressure to persevere for as long as she did.

However, in the end the This Morning presenter decided to stop and feed him a goat’s milk formula instead after it was discovered that he has a dairy intolerance.

She said: "So yeah I was just proud of myself just doing it for nine weeks, he's now on a goat's milk formula that's working really well and it's called Nanny Care if anyone wants to find one."

In the same conversation, Rochelle admitted that this was her first time breastfeeding meaning her previous two daughters were formula fed.

Fans also quizzed her on baby number four, and to that she quickly replied: "I'm currently locked down with three kids, so… no."

Rochelle, 31, and husband Marvin, 35, welcomed baby Blake last October and are also parents to daughters Valentina, three, and Alaia, seven.

They recently shared a picture of his incredible nursery space on their home Instagram account.

The Saturdays singer is known for her frank parenting discussions, and previously discussed her guilt over dismissing her eldest daughter Alaia when she said she wasn’t seeing properly.

The presenter revealed that her child had been telling her about her eyesight but she thought the youngster was just avoiding going to bed.

Sharing a snap of her cute daughter in the opticians wearing her new glasses, Rochelle wrote in the caption: “Honest Parent Post Alert!!! So…here goes…

“My Alaia has been complaining about her eyes and that she wants to sit at the front of the class with her friends so she can see better, she also says that her eyes are blurry every time it's time to go to bed.

“Being a Mum that normally knows when my kids are trying their luck I honestly have been dismissing it, I thought she was stalling going to bed and wanted to sit at the front of class so she could have a gossip with her best friends.

“Turns out I was wrong..she needs glasses…How do I feel? AWFUL! Being a parent isn't easy is it?"
