Sharing a gorgeous photo of her oldest daughter holding the hand of her newborn sister, Paloma wrote to her 607,000 followers: "Struggling a bit today. Day 9.

"No more engorgement but the nipples are on fire. Not sure if they are infected or that I have a terrible latch.

"I've had the tongue tie cut now so hoping that will eventually help. If someone else says to me 'nose to nipple' I might scratch their eyes out. Ha!

"I look at my body and I feel like it will never be the same again. Having such tearful moments where I can't cope with anything, even small things.

"Torn between the two kids. The new one is like a new love, I am fascinated and besotted by her and she needs me more than she needs anyone else.

"Then the first one and I miss each other so much we are heartbroken. It probably works in her favour I had a c section because she knows where I will be (usually in bed) and comes to find me and do activity books on the bed together.

"I also can't tell if I’m getting ill or if I'm just exhausted and healing. Everyone keeps saying 'don't do too much or you won't get better' but how much is too much?

"When people say 'you overdid it' it makes you feel like all your pain and suffering is your own fault."

She continued: "God I sound morbid haahahahaha WHO EVEN AM I?"

Paloma has previously been open about her struggle with acute breast engorgement, sharing an image of herself with cabbage leaves on her breasts.

She wrote: "It's painful. The boobs are rock hard. I'm trying massage while feeding, it hurts so much like a deep tissue massage and not much is helping.

"Hot showers/massage/hand expressing and poor baby is really over it with the exhausting hard work she needs to do to get the milk out of all those swollen blocked ducts."
