Camilla Thurlow has hit back at a troll who labelled her "classless" for breastfeeding her baby in her car.
The former Love Island star, 33, posted a snap of herself breastfeeding her baby girl Nora Belle Jewitt, who she shares with fellow islander Jamie Jewitt.
Disappointingly, she then received a torrent of negative replies. Camilla then posted a lengthy statement, calling out the trolls and suggesting they "leave the business of behaving like a baby to the babies".
Re-sharing the breastfeeding snap, Camilla wrote: "I shared this on my stories earlier and someone sent me a message saying how ‘classless’ it was.
"It’s easy to end up sharing the highlights of parenting on here, but between the pretty reels are many moments, like this, that are part of the reality," she continued.
"Like feeding in carparks, or pumping in bathroom stalls or using the five minutes you had for a cuppa to sterilise bottles. There are the days when you leave an hour early (despite getting no sleep) to try and time feeds right so your baby is settled for a meeting.
"Or stay up late when you’re utterly exhausted to wash your pump parts before work tomorrow, or try to screw a bottle top on one-handed whilst rocking a pram so you don’t disturb anyone."
She continued: "There’s constant planning, and prepping and admin that you do to try and make things work for everyone (usually while trying to make it look easy at the same time), and then there’s enduring the critical looks when inevitably one day it doesn’t quite go as smoothly as planned despite all the effort you’ve put in.
"I put that story up thinking there would be so many parents in a similar position today – feeding their baby, multi-tasking and making things work – because that’s the reality and it’s important to share that and not just the perfect moments."
Camilla then said anyone who doesn't like seeing pictures of breastfeeding should "grow up".
She continued: "And tbh I think if you don’t like seeing a baby being fed – either by bottle or breast, whether in real life or on here – you need to grow up, because we don’t need the added job of trying to work around you too.
"Let’s leave the business of behaving like a baby to the babies."
