CHARLOTTE Dawson has shared a set of brutally honest pictures of herself struggling to breastfeed as an exhausted new mum.
The 28-year-old reality star, who welcomed son Noah with fiancé Matt Sarsfield last month, shared her story on Instagram.
She said she had been breast feeding for nearly a month but said at her lowest point it felt like her nipples would "fall off".
Charlotte said: "The sleepless nights, the cluster feeding & how painful it was on my t**ties… but I carried on & stayed strong."
The star, famous for shows including Ex On The Beach said she was proud of sticking it out and was praised by fellow mums.
Today the star posed pictures of herself looking very unlike her usual glam self.
She said: "This is when I was at my most exhausted drained emotional state and wanted to give up."
Charlotte wrote: "I’m not gonna sugar coat it, it’s hard.. your on demand constantly I feel like I can’t get anything done🤣.
"But it’s so rewarding and the pain gets less & less and doesn’t hurt anymore it’s crazy.
"So glad I did stick to it because it got so much better, I mean the first latch still makes ya bunions curl…
"I’m not going to put pressure on myself though, as I know people say breast is best.. but fed is best 🙌🏽
"If I do a few more weeks or a few more months amazing but if I can’t I’m not a failure."
Charlotte later posted some pictures of her looking far more like her normal self in matching outfits from her Dawsylicious clothing line.
Both borrowed her 'chuffin' catchphrase with Noah's babygro reading: Gimme the chuffin' milk."
