NEW mum Kate Lawler has revealed her "hardest day so far" afterbaby Noa refused to feed.
The 40-year-old star admitted that she "feels like a bad parent" as she struggles to find a routine for her adorable newborn.
The Virgin Radio presenter shared an update on her difficult night with her eight-week-old daughter, who she gave birth to in lockdown.
The Big Brother star wrote: "Noa is two months old today. It was also one of the hardest days for us so far.
"She cried constantly. Hardly slept. Feeding was stressful. Both boob and bottle.
"Why is it every time you think you've turned a corner, you have a really bad day?
"She still smiled at us. Made us laugh. But also thins really got to me today. The pressure to have a routine and for her to be sleeping more.
"It makes me feel like a bad parent because we aren't there yet."
The TV star explained that she wished motherhood was easier as she continues to adjust to being a first time mum.
Kate continued: "Still wishing I found this job easier and felt happier. Thankfully I have the handsome who has sent me to bed and is staying downstairs with her until 2am.
"I should get some shut eye. Big love to all my fellow new parents out there. If you're sashing it well done. If you're not coping well, stay strong."
She regularly documents her sleepless nights with Noa in honest social media posts.
It comes after Kate revealed last month that she was "not coping well mentally".
She wrote: "If you must know, being a mum to a newborn is not the best thing ever right now. It's broken me.
"I feel as though I've been treading water since February 11th and the last two days I've felt like I'm at breaking point.
"I'm not coping well mentally and wish I could be stronger for my daughter. I'm not enjoying what I'm going through, yes I'm struggling and you're right, I am sad behind the eyes because I've always taken on new challenges like a duck to water but this one is testing me & I feel like I'm failing.
"I'm not afraid to say it because thanks to people like you, there's far too much pressure on new parents to say how blissful the 'newborn bubble' is when really it's different for EVERY parent because EVERY baby is different."
