I won’t be pressured into breastfeeding my twin babies – I need sleep, says Frankie Essex | The Sun

FRANKIE Essex has revealed she won’t be breastfeeding her twins.

The 34-year-old star gave birth to her and partner Luke Luv’s babies last month, and has made the decision so she can get some sleep.

She explained to OK! Magazine:  “I decided I didn’t want to [breastfeed] – just for the fact it’s twins and I need some sleep and I felt like it was an important bond for Luke [to bottle feed them].

“The men can’t bond as much if the mum is breastfeeding.”

She went on to say didn’t think mothers should be made to feel bad if they didn’t breastfeed and that they are putting their kids at risk.

Frankie continued: “Where I’ve got the milk, the babies can still smell it.

"They suck like crazy when they’re on me, so I just pass them to Luke sometimes and they settle easier. He’s warm – he’s such a hot person. I think they love the warmth."

Frankie is now letting her milk dry up, but admits she’ll miss her larger bust.
