Camilla wrote: ‘I shared this on my stories earlier and someone messaged me saying how “classless” it was.
‘It’s easy to end up sharing parenting highlights here, but amongst the great moments there are many moments, like these, that are part of the truth.
‘Like feeding in the garden, or pumping water in the bathroom stalls or using the five minutes you had for a cup to freeze a bottle.

‘Classless’: In a lengthy caption, the mother-of-two explained that she originally posted it because ‘it’s important to share that and not just a good time’
‘There are days when you leave an hour early (despite lack of sleep) to try and feed your baby for a meeting.
‘Or stay up at night when you’re really tired to wash your pump parts before work tomorrow, or try spinning a bottle with one hand while rocking the pram so you don’t disturb anyone.
‘There’s the constant planning, and preparation and management 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 coping with the hard times when inevitably one day it doesn’t. go well as planned despite all the efforts you put in.
Lovely: Earlier this month Camilla opened up about having her second daughter Nora Bell with her husband Jamie Jewitt in an Instagram Q&A.

The star then went on to attack anyone who might not like ‘seeing a baby being fed – either with a bottle, whether in real life or here’.
“You need to grow up, because we don’t need the extra work of trying to work around you either,” Camilla added. ‘Let’s stop the business of behaving like a baby for children.’

She continued: “I have a lot of help and support this time (we went into lockdown after Nell was born so it was very different) and I’m not ashamed to accept any help that’s offered.

Camilla gave birth to Nora on May 27, 2022, and another asked if she had a different experience than Nell.
The star explained how both her birthdays were ‘similar’ and ‘so fast’.
‘It’s hard to compare’: Camilla said she has ‘a lot of help and support this time’ and when she was with Nell the country went into lockdown.
Camilla said: “They were very similar in many ways, I ended up having regular follow-ups with both (meconium with Nell, the issue of growth tests with Nora) and both labors were quick.
“This time was the best experience because of the wonderful midwives (and Jamie) who believed that things were moving quickly and gave me the emotional support I needed at the right time.
“I had a hard time coming to terms with Nell’s birth and I had a conversation where we discussed what could have been different but in the end I am very grateful to my two girls and I am very grateful to the NHS for all they do and to the midwives who have such a hard job, thank you x’

The reality star said: ‘I wouldn’t say it gets easier as each phase has its challenges but my honest opinion is that the whole experience of watching your little one grow up just keeps getting better.
“I think there’s a lot of pressure to enjoy the baby phase and of course it’s lovely that they’re sweet and little, but there are some very difficult aspects too.
