Stacey Solomon gazes lovingly at baby Rex as they have 'tummy time' together

STACEY Solomon has shared two snaps of her and son Rex enjoying "tummy time" together on Instagram.

The Loose Women presenter, who had her third son and first with partner Joe Swash in May, gazed lovingly at the newborn in the sweet photos as she revealed his personality is starting to shine through.

She wrote: "Tummy time I forgot about all of the exciting things they do when they start spending more time awake!

"We played today for a good hour in between feeds and he’s even starting to try and lift up his head when he’s on my tummy!

"Aw it’s all starting to feel real now. His little personality is coming through and I’m here for it."

Tummy time is the way to encourage a baby to get moving and start building the strong muscles in their upper body that they'll need to control their head, roll over and crawl. It is also a way to bond with your baby.


Not only has Stacey kept fans up to date with photos, she's also been open and honest about her struggles with motherhood.

Last week she revealed she's "struggling with crazy thoughts" and is getting help from a mental health charity.

She admitted: "Couldn’t keep my mind still today. It was wondering off into some strange places.

"After spending the morning googling every which way to switch my brain off I came to the conclusion that because lavender was mentioned in almost every 'keep calm remedy' that I needed to visit a lavender farm.


"I don’t know what I thought would happen. Maybe I’d roll around in it and breath it in so deeply that my thoughts slept for a while.

"The lavender didn’t get rid of my anxiety but it was beautiful and for the hour I spent picking it I definitely thought less about anything scary and more about how to cut the right bits and survive the killer bees.

"So, in conclusion I probably didn’t need to force Joe to drive me 45 miles to our 'closest' lavender field but I’m glad I did.

"It got us all out of the house. It was breathtakingly beautiful and it took me away, even if just for a couple of hours, from the dread.
