Candid: On Tuesday, Millie told fans that she was no longer able to breastfeed her daughter Sienna because she suffered from Silent Reflux, a condition that causes children to raise their milk after breastfeeding.
‘She was exhibiting quite a few symptoms – distracted short feedings, crying every night, arching her back, becoming stiff, coughing and still trying to get up.
‘All of these symptoms were made worse when she started wearing her hip harness because she couldn’t stretch her legs, which many babies do in response to reflux.
“ We had assumed it was the harness itself that was causing her distress, but it wasn’t until I read the @magic_sleep_fairy book that it all made sense.
“ I felt so bad that I hadn’t realized this before because she seemed so happy during the day. I was reassured that many of her symptoms were just “normal” baby behavior, but I knew deep down that something was wrong.

Millie attacked the trolls, as she begged ‘mum’s police’ not to judge her: ‘I am in no way suggesting that anyone stop breastfeeding just because their baby is having reflux …
“ My reflux / breastfeeding experience with Sienna was exacerbated by wearing a hip harness.
“ Breastfeeding got even more difficult (unable to put her in a comfortable position) and I tried breastfeeding for a while but found it too much.
“ It’s been a rough month, needless to say anxiety levels have peaked and I’m still struggling with the emotional roller coaster of being a new mom – the guilt, worry, panic and the hundred other things that I try not to overwhelm myself!

What is Silent Reflux?
Reflux occurs when a baby brings milk during or shortly after a feed. This is different from vomiting in babies, where a baby’s muscles contract forcefully.
Other symptoms can include nausea, choking, and excessive crying.
Reflux is common in babies, but normally stops at one year of age, when the ring of muscle at the bottom of the esophagus fully expands and prevents stomach contents from escaping.
Information on the NHS website states: ‘Parents do not normally need to see a doctor if their baby appears happy and healthy and is gaining weight appropriately. ”
She revealed that at times she was ‘worried beyond herself’ and that ‘the lack of time to take care of herself sometimes took its toll.’
However, Millie explained that getting into a routine and trying to be “ more relaxed ” despite having “ always suffered from anxiety ” helped in an essay for Sheerluxe.
One of the most tough times for the new mom came when Sienna was diagnosed with hip dysplasia at the age of three months and had to wear a harness for six to 12 weeks.
Millie said, “I would be lying if I said I wasn’t worried about it; this whole experience made me realize that I had a lifetime of worry ahead of me.
She explained that although Sienna cried at first, she quickly got used to the harness with Millie praising the babies on their adaptability.
Millie gave birth to Sienna in May during the coronavirus pandemic and nationwide lockdown, which she said was ‘intimidating’.
However, while loathing the idea of not being able to have her husband with her during childbirth, Millie said her main concern was Sienna’s well-being.
She added that her ‘primitive instincts’ kicked in and Hugo was able to be with her for a few hours in the hospital after their daughter was born.
