Former EastEnders actress Melissa Suffield welcomed her firstborn on March 16th and has since given her Instagram followers a behind-the-scenes look at her life as a new-mum including the not so glamorous aspect.
Melissa, 27, who shot to fame playing Lucy Beale shares her first child with fiancé and Robert Brendan.
Announcing the news of River's arrival, the actress took to Instagram to share a string of snaps to her 11.2k followers.
One snap saw her looking down at her son who she cradled in her arms while he gazed at his mum.
Days after welcoming her son, Melissa wanted to let her fans know how things are for her.
One adorable snap saw her son fresh after feeding looking happy, which she captioned "boob drunk".
In another snap, Melissa revealed that she had switched roles with her fiancé and he had taken the not-so-fun duty of nappy changing before River went on to wee and poo himself without a nappy on before being sick on himself.
When quizzed by a follower over her decision to share such an image, Suffield replied: "Because it's hilarious in quite a bleak world right now. Also, this is real life."

Taking to Instagram stories, the actress said: "Just had my first sh*t lads," – its a common occurrence for women to be constipated after birth.
