Dani has been keeping fans updated on her journey through motherhood and recently opened up about the challenges of breastfeeding.
The reality star was recently asked by a fan online: ‘How is feeding going? Are you breast of bottle?’
She responded: ‘I’ve been doing a mix of both but it took a while for my milk to really come through..
‘I always wanted to just exclusively breastfeed but it didn’t end up that way. I breastfeed as much as I can but do use Aptamil milk when I feel like he isn’t settled.

‘If my milk decides to come through more then I definitely will just breastfeed but I think you have to take it step by step xx’.
Dani recently confessed she can’t help comparing herself to other mums since welcoming her son.
The star has been breastfeeding and expressing milk for her newborn but admitted in her Instagram Story on Sunday she is becoming ‘obsessed’ with the best way to feed her baby.
The first-time mum discussed using a hands-free breast pump which allows her to multi-task and get other things done around the house while expressing breast milk.

Busy schedule: Dani was seen checking her phone as she left the shop
She said: ‘I’ll just use it mostly because imagine if I’m getting things done it’s just nice to know I’m expressing milk because I just like to know how much he’s feeding.
‘And as much as I love him on the boob, I like to know how many ounces he’s having especially at the night time so then I can sleep.’
However, she admitted to her 3.4million followers that when she first gave birth, she was so busy comparing herself to other women that it was ‘ruining’ her time with her son.
Dani said: ‘I just want to add that there really is no right or wrong way on how you wanna feed your baby.
Heartwarming: Dani welcomed her baby boy last month with beau Sammy Kimmence
‘I think for me especially, when I first had Sani, all I was doing was comparing myself to other women.
‘Oh she’s doing this, she’s doing that, and you know what it was ruining my time with him.
‘So really if you wanna formula feed, do that. If you wanna breastfeed, do that. If you wanna express, do that. As long as your baby is happy, you’re happy then I think that’s all that matters.
Challenge: Dani has been keeping fans updated on her journey through motherhood and recently opened up about the struggles of breastfeeding
‘But especially now with social media, all we do now is compare. Mine wasn’t comparing bodies or anything… I’ve become obsessed with how to feed my baby!
‘So just do what you wanna do, there is no right or wrong way and as long as you’re happy then so is your baby.’
The reality TV star welcomed baby Santiago at the end of January with her boyfriend Sammy Kimmence.

Dani ended up having to give birth by emergency caesarean as ‘the baby didn’t want to come out’.
She explained: ‘I had to have a caesarean in the end and I was crying about that.
‘I never wanted to have a C-section, I know they are very common and I know they happen but I never wanted one – that was never in my birth plan, so I started feeling like a failure.

‘The baby didn’t want to come out, my waters broke and I was at five centimetres and he wasn’t dilating. I ended up having to have a c-section, it was an emotional day.’
Dani discussed her C-section experience, admitting the recovery has been difficult but she has received plenty of support from Sammy.
She said: ‘I was scary, you’re paralysed, I could not feel anything. It was scary for me.
Proud mum: Dani paid a touching tribute to her partner and their newborn son earlier this month, saying she ‘couldn’t have got through’ labour without Sammy
‘The recovery is hard, Sammy really has seen everything. He was brilliant, I needed someone to laugh with.
‘But I do not want women to worry about c-sections, don’t feel guilty about it, that was my problem.’
Dani previously confirmed the birth of her son in an Instagram post with a picture of her cradling the newborn in her arms, and another of Sammy gently kissing him on the cheek.
The new mother wrote: ‘After a very long day and night finally our special little boy arrived 23/01/2021 Weighing 7 pound…
‘We are in a complete baby bubble and enjoying every moment, can not believe he is ours, completely in love and so grateful to be his mummy…
‘Sending all my love to all the other mommas to be out there in lockdown… the best experience ever will never forget this day. (sic)’
