Dani Dyer begs fans for advice after baby Santiago comes out in a rash after breastfeeding
DANI Dyer begged fans for advice after her baby Santiago came out in a rash after breastfeeding.
The Love Island star, 24, asked for advice from Instagram mums after spotting spots on her son.
Dani shared a picture of cute Santiago sleeping in her arms, as she posed for the camera.
She wrote: "Can anyone please recommend a safe body cream for me to use which won't irritate my baby's skin?
"Feel like where his [sic.] on the boob my body cream is irritating him which has given him spots. Thank you"
One person suggested: "It's probably baby acne very common. Pop some breast milk on his spots"
Dani replied: "I've seen a few people saying this! His sleeping now so I finally get to have my shower so once his awake I'll try. [sic.]"
Another added: "it's baby acne my son had it too, I was worried he had a allergy but it will go x"
Dani mirrored those worries, saying: "Same I was so worried but spoke to my midwife and she said it's not an allergy just a bit of bad skin. I didn't even think it was possible for baby's to get bad skin.
"Thankyou all so much for the messages and recommendations. Hopefully it clears up soon my poor boy you are still so handsome."
Dani has been honest with her fans on Instagram after becoming a new parent last month with boyfriend Sammy Kimmence.
She recently opened up about the challenges of breastfeeding.
Despite her difficulties, she insisted "fed is best" as she juggles the bottle and boob.
A fan asked Dani: "How is feeding going? Are you breast of bottle?"
The 24-year-old replied: "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".
She added: "Fed is best"
The star later asked for breastfeeding tips and thanked people for them afterwards.
She wrote: "Thank you all so so much for the messages I've been receiving in regards to breastfeeding.
"So lovely for you to take the time out of your day to send a lovely message and offer support as I really needed it.
"Instagram can be a lovely place xx".
The new mum also revealed she's finding the "sleep deprivation hard" and she gets "emotional" even talking about her baby.
