Mrs Hinch Shares Breastfeeding 'Frustration' As She Reveals She Has A Blocked Milk Duct

Mrs Hinch has shared her breastfeeding frustrations a week after welcoming her son, Lennie Alan James - opening up to fans about her clogged milk duct and how it is impacting feeding her newborn.

The Queen of clean, 31, and her husband Jamie welcomed their second child just over one week ago, and has since been letting fans in on the realities of motherhood.

"Good evening everyone...," she said in an Instagram story, alongside a picture of herself hugging her little boy.

"Our Ron & Len are fast asleep and Henry is napping on the sofa. So I just wanted to say hello. Truth is I've managed absolutely nothing this week guys.

"I've spent every day feeding and being with my boys. I'm n day 8 of breastfeeding but I have blocked milk duct so I feel frustrated with myself.

"So a quick reminder for us all that "our best is enough and will ALWAYS be enough".

A blocked milk duct often presents as a small, tender lump in your breast, and comes as a consequence of the breast segments not draining properly after a feed.

It can occur for several reasons. The National Childbirth Trust explain: "You might get this if your baby has a tongue-tie.

"It might also happen if your baby is not taking your breast into their mouth deeply enough to feed effectively - [which is known as] a 'shallow latch'."

The Instagram cleaning sensation has always been candid about the ups and downs of her life - that's largely what makes her so popular.

And alongside the struggles she's experienced breastfeeding, she also spoke out about the pain she experienced during labour.

The social media star - real name Sophie Hinchcliffe - took to Instagram to share an insight into the moment she gave birth, admitting she "screamed the hospital down" but adding that she "would do it all again."

Despite the struggles, she's made no secret of the fact she's had a beautiful first week with her little one.

She's been sharing tonnes of cute pictures from her son's arrival, including a photo of Lennie laying in a moses basket next to his big brother Ronnie, when they met for the first time.

"I just know our hearts are so full and we feel on top of the world. Thank you for your beautiful messages everyone. Ron Len & Hen #letsgoboys," she wrote, alongside a string of blue heart emojis.

Her adored pet, cocker spaniel Henry, can also be seen in another snap with the brothers.

"My absolute whole wide world," she wrote alongside the image, adding: "Hinch Bros xxx."

Sophie told fans that she chose the name Lennie for her son because she wanted her son's moniker to rhyme with her two-year-old Ronnie's.

"Both me and [husband] Jamie loved the fact Lennie rhymes with Ronnie, but also when shortened, Len rhymes with Hen [the dog]," she told a fan. "Alan is my dad's name."
