Stacey Solomon has hit back at social media naysayers who accused her of weaning her five-month-old son Rex too early.
The Loose Women host, 30, took to Instagram to tell her followers she wanted to 'clear up some of the myths' around weaning and enlisted the help of nutritionist Charlotte Stirling-Reed.
Stacey said: 'Last time I spoke about weaning, lots of people were concerned about him not being exactly six months yet and I just thought I'd clear up some of the myths.'

Nutrition expert Charlotte added: 'The recommendation is around six months of age and that's absolutely fine - Rex is around six months. It's all about looking out for the signs he is ready.'
Stacey then asked: 'And you think he's ready?'
'Definitely. He can sit up for a little bit, hold up his head and neck steady. He can reach out and get food all by himself. We are good to go.'
Stacey then shared a clip of herself feeding Rex some mashed broccoli for the first time where he pulled a face while eating it.

She wrote: 'He absolutely loved playing with the food and his spoon, I’m not sure what he thought about the eating part.
'His face when he ate it was the funniest thing ever. I cant wait to introduce loads of different foods and have him at the dinner table with us. Well done Rexy we love you to the moon and back.'
It comes after Stacey
