Wow! Millie Mackintosh proudly showed off her post-partum figure on Instagram on Friday as she marked nine months since giving birth to her daughter, Sienna

Millie wrote: ‘I can’t believe it’s been nearly 9 months since I gave birth to Sienna, I wanted to take the time to reflect on how my body has changed. I’m in awe of how incredible our bodies are, for 9 months they work their magic, becoming the perfect home for our growing babies.

‘Once our child comes into the world, it’s as though your body knows it needs to get strong again so that it can take care of the beautiful miracle it’s produced.

‘It’s amazing how quickly your body can adapt and change when it knows that It needs to have the strength to provide food for your baby to grow, run around after them for hours and be able to function whatever the time of day or night!

‘Today my hips and waist are wider, my lower stomach isn’t flat and sometimes it still looks like I’m 3 months pregnant. My body composition is very different, I’m holding on to body fat in places I’ve never had it before, and the skin on my tummy and boobs looks and feels a lot less firm and is slightly crinkled.’

Millie continued that ‘each mark is a memory of the miracle that is making a baby’. 

The reality said she plans to keep eating nutritiously and allowing herself to rest. 

She concluded the lengthy post by telling her followers: ‘I didn’t know the power of my body until I had a baby, I’m way more forgiving with myself, and I’m grateful every single day for what it has given me.’

It comes after the TV personality revealed she suffered from ‘engorged, sore’ breasts after moving Sienna from breast milk to formula last year.

While sharing a throwback snap in bed breastfeeding, the reality star said: ‘I found it hard emotionally and physically!

‘It took a few weeks for my milk to dry up and I had really engorged, sore boobs! I stopped breastfeeding Sienna then used my pump less and less over three weeks rather than stopping overnight.

‘Luckily Sienna liked the taste of the formula we were prescribed for her reflux and didn’t refuse to drink it. We gave her a bottle of my expressed milk every day from early on so she would be able to use it and I think that helped.’

Millie previously said that her daughter, whom she shares with Hugo Taylor, has silent reflux, a condition that causes children to bring up milk or be sick, shortly after breastfeeding.

When confirming her child’s diagnosis in September, the mother-of-one said: ‘Sienna is now on medication and based on the professional advice given, it has meant my breastfeeding journey has come to an end much sooner than I had hoped.

‘It was a really emotional decision to step back and transition to the suggested specific formula that helps with this condition.

‘I reminded myself that firstly it’s all about whatever is best for Sienna and secondly I am so grateful for the first 4 months of beautiful bonding we shared during our feeding times (it’s not a given for everyone).’

She concluded: ‘I was at peace with whatever needed to be done in order to make Sienna comfortable.’
