NEW mum Kate Lawler struggled with feeding baby Noa last night as she admitted she was “missing her family and friends”.
The Virgin Radio presenter shared an update on her night with her seven-week-old daughter, who she gave birth to in lockdown.
Kate – whose daughter recently battled an infection in hospital – shared her thoughts in honest posts on Instagram throughout the night.
Breastfeeding Kate first battled with a mosquito in her bedroom at around 4am – before accidentally smacking herself in the face.
She then admitted night feeds can be lonely as she deals with missing her loved ones.
She told her followers: “I miss family, I miss my friends. I miss messing around on Insta stories with you guys.”
The star added: “Finish a night feed around 6am and trying to go back to sleep in summer is not fun. How noisy are birds at this hour?”
She recently documented her sleepless night with Noa on her Instagram.
And it comes after Kate said last week she is “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.”
