When former TOWIE star Sam Faiers became a mum to baby Paul 16 months ago, she decided to breastfeed him for as long as possible. Since then, Sam has made it her mission to help inform other women about the benefits of breastfeeding.
She told HuffPost:
It's the most natural thing to do as a woman. So many young mums don't see breastfeeding as an option, but I think it's so much easier to breastfeed if you are able to. I do want to normalise it, but I don't know why people don't think it's normal. That's what our boobs are for. Once you get past the first couple of weeks – it does hurt and it is sore – it becomes so easy and lovely bonding as a mum.
