Newborn baby Primrose has been in and out of hospital since she was born in December last year.

Emma McVey has appealed to her followers for advice on her newborn baby Primrose's medical condition, asking fans to get in touch if any of them have had a similar experience with their babies.

Taking to her Instagram stories, she wrote: "Has anyone else's child had Botox in the sphincter muscle to help them go to the toilet? Please can you get in touch if so!

She then added: "To help the sphincter muscle relax not make it tighter... Primrose is not constipated the stool is runny and liquid. She just cannot pass it herself, or wind. This is not a way of life for a baby at all."

"Just because I am not posting updates for you daily does not mean it's okay to hound me and think everything is okay.  

"We are all going through hell at the minute, not the newborn bubble that's a notable.

Emma added: "Primrose had her sixth hospital appointment yesterday, I am trying to still make Chester's birthday and party the best for him, so work is my last priority right now. 

"Your mum instincts are never wrong, Primrose is everything Chester was in regards to stomach problems plus more and it's absolutely heartbreaking to see."
