Tough time: Tanya Burr has candidly revealed she’s been struggling with breastfeeding and was ‘ready to give up’ after giving birth to her son Sage
‘The important part I want to share is that the reason I took this photo was because I wanted a photo memory of this moment as it was a special one for me – this time last week I felt ready to give up…
‘Everything hurt and my supply was too much and I was finding it really difficult.
‘So thankful I kept going as I know I would have felt so sad if I’d given up as I don’t think you can really start up again if you stop (don’t quote me on that) and when I’m not in pain it’s one of my favourite times with my son and I know how much he benefits from it.

In November Tanya announced that she had given birth to her first child with her boyfriend, whose identity she has kept a secret.
Taking to Instagram to share a snap of her little boy’s hand, she penned the caption: ‘He’s here ✨ Our little Sage Gabriel ✨
‘Becoming a mother has been the most magic, beautiful thing…we are in a cocoon of love right now and just couldn’t be more grateful for him.
‘All I want to do is pause time and soak up every moment, each day feels like it’s passing by so fast in a blur of skin to skin cuddles, sleeplessness, breastfeeding, nappies and tears.
‘He has brought us so much happiness already, our love for him is unparalleled.’
