Ever since Jacqueline Laurita‘s daughter Ashlee Holmes gave birth to new baby Cameron Hendrix Malleo on Tuesday, August 30, it’s been nothing but fun. She and her fiancé Pete Malleo have been posting adorable snaps on social media and taking lots of visitors from the Real Housewives of New Jersey family.

Dolores Catania even visited this week writing, “How perfect is @ashleenicholexx little angel?”

But, it hasn’t all been easy. The new mom opened up about a recent struggle of hers: breastfeeding. “I breastfeed my baby. (#medela),” she wrote on Instagram. “However… I haven’t been producing that much. I’ve had to supplement with formula quite a bit.”

Her go-to fix? “I love using @earthsbest when I supplement because it’s organic, non GMO, doesn’t contain corn syrup solids and has other benefits. It does however still contain soy –but I think the pros outweigh the cons,” she added. “Plus, my baby loves it. This isn’t an ad. Just recommending it to other breastfeeding Mamas who supplement / formula based Mamas. #breastfeeding #formula.”

Another reality star, Coco Austin, opened up about her breastfeeding troubles with daughter Chanel Nicole recently too. She said that while the first five months were smooth sailing, once her tot turned six months old, breastfeeding became more challenging and she had to turn to a bottle. Coco revealed that her little one’s change in feeding method “hurts my feelings” and “I wish she would want a little more of me.”
