Relationships: Helen, who is a mother of three young children: Matilda, six, Delilah, three, and their son Charlie, 13 months, admitted that she will now focus on making a room where she and Scott can sleep together.
“I’m fixing up my house right now (which is why most of my photos are taken in the living room area, since I don’t have the rest).
“One of my next jobs is me and Scott’s room and after seven years it would be nice as a couple to share a bed and not feel like roommates.”
She confessed, “I’ve always slept with the kids for comfort and basically so I can sleep and function in the morning.”
Parents: Helen told her social media followers that she always had trouble sleeping and functioning if she didn’t sleep with her kids.
Helen also revealed in her post that she is weaning her little Charles from breast milk and hopes he sleeps better too.
She said: ‘There are so many other amazing and lovely stages after breastfeeding… I love watching Charlie’s little personality grow.
‘It’s been a good week of progress for Charles, totally milk-free throughout the day and only taking one feed before bed and when he wakes up a milky feed. I had to do it gradually for Charlie and myself so he doesn’t get mastitis.
She added: “I haven’t had any regular sort of babysitting for Charlie since he was born, so it’s been nice to have something last week to sort out just general life management that I’ve had to do that you just can’t do with a baby and because I have had a pair of hands he has not been frustrated during the day for not having my milk.
Mother: She explained: ‘I’ve always slept with Charlie (pictured) and breastfeeding went hand in hand with that’
I can’t believe it either, Charlie has started wanting to sleep on his cot! He seemed so restless next to me, I think it was a little constipation from eating more, bless him.
It comes after the actress, who is best loved for playing Rosie Webster on The Cobblestones, revealed last month that all three of her children had contracted scarlet fever.
Scarlet fever is a contagious infection that mainly affects young children, but is easily treated with antibiotics.
A main symptom of scarlet fever is a rash of small raised spots, while some also suffer from Flu-like symptoms, including high fever, sore throat, and swollen glands in the neck.
Family: She confessed, “I’ve always slept with the kids for comfort and basically so I can sleep and function in the morning.”
On Instagram, Helen shared a snapshot of Delilah napping on the couch as she battled the infection.
She wrote: ‘All children have scarlet fever. I’m glad to know what it’s like after Delilah hasn’t been herself and the medicine to treat her.
Parents have been warned to be on the lookout for chicken pox and scarlet fever as cases rise among children across the country.
The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) issued the warning to parents after nearly 3,500 cases of scarlet fever were reported between September 2021 and March 2022 in England.
