Molly-Mae Hague has been slammed by fans over her breastfeeding routine with her 10-week-old daughter, Bambi.
However, it seems that some people strongly disagree with one of the 23-year-old's parenting choices. Have a look:
Taking to YouTube in a 'Spend the week with me' vlog, the influencer opened up to her 1.78 million subscribers about what her evenings now look like as a first-time mum.
She posted the vlog on Monday (10 April) and it has since racked up more than half a million views.
Cuddling up with Bambi on her sofa, Molly-Mae told viewers: "7pm is when bedtime starts and then she has a bottle at 11pm and after 11pm that's when we try to get our night's sleep."
She added that her and Tommy's sleep 'at the minute is going a lot better'.
"We are definitely getting more sleep now, I say more sleep," the mum-of-one reiterated.
Molly-Mae went on to explain that she's 'probably getting about four or five hours' per night.
Talking about the little one, the reality TV star noted: "She's going from 11pm to 7am with no milk but she is waking up all though the night and I settle her.
"She is waking up like 'hello, I want some milk' and I'm like 'you're not having milk now'.
"Around this time is when they drop feeding in the night. It's different for every baby but with her, we are trying to encourage that."
And it seems that Molly-Mae's breastfeeding routine definitely shook some feathers online.
Hundreds flocked to the comment section to share a piece of their mind with the ex-Islander.
One YouTube user commented: "Omg Molly if she’s waking up wanting a feed, please give it to her, she could be going through a growth spurt and your denying her food to help her with that."
A second echoed: "For a 10 week old baby they should be fed a few times in the night! It's helps the development! She shouldn't be going that long without a feed."
A third posted: "Just wanted to say (from a children’s health care professional & mum myself) that it is recommended to wean night feeds from 6-12 months, 10 weeks is a little too early, it is likely she will wake up a bit less if fed during the night (this is for both formula and breastfed babies) and it is still important for their development."
Towards the end of the vlog, Molly-Mae went on to tell her fans that she had to stop breastfeeding because she 'wasn't producing enough milk'.
"I came on my period whilst I was breastfeeding so that was an indicator to me that I wasn't producing enough milk, my milk supply completely dried up," she explained.
"Bambi was sucking on my nipple and nothing was coming out and she was getting so upset."
