Sam Faiers' son eats 'everything'
Sam Faiers is trying to ween her baby son Paul off the boob because he's started eating "everything in sight."
Sam Faiers' son is "eating everything in sight."
The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star is starting to ween 15-month-old Paul, whom she has with her partner Paul Knightley, off the boob because he's eating grub now.
Speaking to new! magazine, she explained: "He's trying to talk, he's walking, he's cheeky and he's eating everything in sight! He's really cute.
"I'm in the process of getting him off the boob completely, but because we moved house recently I thought: 'This isn't a good time.' But he's eating all day long, so he doesn't really have a boob for milk now. It's more like a dummy and comfort."
The 26-year-old beauty thinks breastfeeding is brilliant for the baby and has even tried to encourage her sister Billie Faiers to nurse her son one-month-old son Arthur.
She explained: "She didn't breastfeed Nelly [her first child] but the whole time she was pregnant, I was like: 'You've got to do it, it's great for you and the baby. Paul has never been ill.' Then when she gave birth, the midwives were like: 'Are you going to breastfeed or bottle feed?' and she was like: 'I really want to give breastfeeding a go.' I just sort of took over and helped her get Arthur latched. He latched straightaway and the midwives said: 'This is amazing, you're doing our job for us.' I think having me there to support her... she didn't really have that before. So this time I just encouraged it."
Sam witnessed her nephew entering the world but she has admitted she almost missed it because he arrived within half an hour of her being admitted to hospital.
She said: "It was quick. By the time I got to the hospital and into the delivery suite, she had the baby in half an hour!"
