Stacey Solomon Hits Back At Troll Criticising Her For Sleeping With Her Baby
Stacey Solomon is known for giving fans a real and honest view of her life as a mum to kids Zachary, 12, Leighton, eight, and one year old Rex.
But when she told fans she and partner Joe Swash slept in the same bed as her little ones she was hit with a barrage of criticism, and the trolls came out in force.
It comes after Stacey shared a picture of all her kids sprawled out over her white bed sheets, with the caption: "And now it's time for cheese and crackers in bed [laughing emoji] If you're wondering where me and Joe sleep I'll show you."
Indicating her tiny space - on one side of the bed - and Joe's space on the other edge, she wrote: "This is actually best case scenario for us there's space on the ends".
While the sweet picture clearly showed the family enjoying some time together over lockdown, one troll couldn't help but use the opportunity to take a jab at Stacey's parenting.
"You let them go to bed at 10pm fully clothed, in your bed? Not sure how healthy this can be for them and for you and Joe to sleep among it all," they wrote, alongside a face palm emoji.
Sharing a screenshot of the jibe, Stacey snapped back: "I thought I'd end the day the way I started..."
She then shared a quote by Eleanor Roosevelt, which read: "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent."
She signed off telling fans: "Don't give your consent. Do what works for you UNAPOLOGETICALLY. Always".

Stacey isn't the only celeb who has been subject to parenting critics recently. Former TOWIE star Lucy Mecklenburgh also revealed not long ago that she gets "looks of disgust" when breastfeeding her son Roman in public.
Lucy opened up on Instagram alongside a picture of herself breastfeeding her and Ryan Thomas' seven-month-old son.
"I've been getting a few looks lately while breastfeeding in public. Hearing comments like 'why wouldn't she use a Muslin' or an awkward glance of disgust," she wrote.
"I think maybe as roman is quite big for his age wearing size 9-12month clothes some people think it's unnecessary to breastfeed a baby of that age."
After listing all the NHS verified health benefits of breastfeeding, she added: "I will not cover Roman with a Muslin the same as u won't eat your pizza with a blanket over your head.
"I will not hide away or be made to feel ashamed or embarrassed for feeding my baby. #breastfeeding #breastfeeding7months #breastfeedingsupport #normalisebreastfeeding".
You go girls. Don't let any mum-shamers get you down.
