Married At First Sight stars Zoe Hendrix and Alex Garner welcomed their first child together, daughter Harper-Rose, in November.
Since then, their social media feeds have been filled with happy family photos and adorable snaps of Harper-Rose sleeping that are just too cute for words.
Now, 27-year-old Zoe has shared her most candid photo yet, opening up about how she struggled to breastfeed when he daughter was first born.
“I FEED her body and she NOURISHES my soul” It took me a good two weeks to get the hang of breastfeeding. Like a new pair of shoes my boobs had to be worn in boot camp style! (Ouch!)???? Both Harper & I had to learn the art of attachment and it wasn’t easy. I had days I wanted to give up. Thank god for the nipple shield which was a godsend when I needed in those early days when my nips resembled a crime scene ????. (Highly recommend!) And now when I feed my baby, I marvel at the perfect nourishment my body producers and I am so grateful and honoured I can breastfeed her, especially acknowledging it can be for many a horrible ordeal for a myriad of reasons. Our bodies are extraordinary ladies we must never forget or be made to feel we are doing anything but what our breasts were created to do!????????❤ #normalisebreastfeeding

????BABY YAWNS are so damn cute! Harper-Rose had her 6 week immunisation this morning and has been sleeping most of the day. I think I was more distressed than she was when the nurse gave her the injections ???????? ???? #shesyawningaftersomeboobiemilk #deliciouschocolateflavouredboobiemilk ???? @alex_garner_
