Cruel trolls target Molly Mae after she shared Bambi’s feeding routine

Fans weren’t happy.

Molly-Mae Hague has been mum-shamed once again after trolls came for her in the comments following a post about Bambi’s nighttime feeding routine.

The former Love Island star welcomed her first child in January with boyfriend Tommy Fury.

Molly has been consistently posting updates about life as a new mum on YouTube and Instagram, sharing both the good and bad parts of life with a newborn.

Earlier this week, Molly posted a video to YouTube and shared details of how often she feeds her daughter, especially when it comes to nighttime feeds.

She told viewers: “7pm is when bedtime starts and then she has a bottle at 11pm and after 11pm that’s when we try to get our night’s sleep, which at the minute is going a lot better.

“We are definitely getting more sleep now – I say more sleep – at the minute I am probably getting about four or five hours. She’s going from 11pm to 7am with no milk but she is waking up all though the night and I settle her.

“She is waking up like ‘hello, I want some milk’ and I’m like ‘you’re not having milk now.’ Around this time is when they drop feeding in the night. It’s different for every baby but with her, we are trying to encourage that.”

Some viewers weren’t happy when it came to Molly’s feeding routine, with some giving her slack for allowing Bambi to sleep through the night without a feed.

One person said: “It is NOT an accomplishment to starve a 10-week-old from 11 pm to 7 am. I am horrified. Seek knowledge please, this is child neglect.”

Another added: “Just wanted to say (from a children’s health care professional & mum myself) that it is recommended to wean night feeds from 6-12 months, 10 weeks is a little too early, it is likely she will wake up a bit less if fed during the night (this is for both formula and breastfed babies) and it is still important for their development.”

While a third said: “You are doing amazing but 10 weeks is too early to not feed her during the night if she’s waking up hungry.”

Could we please stop throwing unwanted advice at new mums? Parents are trying their best and nobody needs random strangers on Instagram to tell them how to raise their baby.
