‘All my friends are in awe of In­dia’

Now (UK) - - You & Improved -

Made In Chelsea star Binky Fel­stead, 27, is mum to five-mon­thold daugh­ter In­dia, with boyfriend Josh Pat­ter­son.

What are you like as mum?

I’m very chilled. I haven’t read any books and I think that’s where we go wrong. We get too much in­for­ma­tion and con­fuse our­selves.

Did your own par­ents give you any tips on rais­ing In­dia?

My mum is the one I’ve spo­ken to about ev­ery­thing. She said, ‘Don’t lis­ten to too many opin­ions, go with your gut.’

Aww! Have you en­dured any em­bar­rass­ing nappy mo­ments?

Not really. I don’t mind that she has a pooey nappy! At the very be­gin­ning, when you don’t know what to do to stop them cry­ing, that’s quite scary, but she’s a very good baby.

How DO you stop In­dia cry­ing?

Feed her! Or take her for a walk in the pram.

Has be­com­ing a mother changed you?

I’m a lot hap­pier. It’s nice to be the first to have a baby out of my friend­ship group be­cause ev­ery­one is so in awe of In­dia.

Is JP very hands-on with In­dia?

Yes. He’s a very good daddy.

That’s great! Reckon In­dia will grow up to be a daddy’s girl?

Nah! She’ll al­ways be a mummy’s girl (laughs).

Do you get much ‘me’ time?

Yes. I go to the gym, which is so good for my head and I’m fi­nally get­ting my body back to where it was be­fore!

Fi­nally, what’s been your es­sen­tial par­ent­ing prod­uct?

It’s from Revlon. It’s this thing you put on your fore­head and it tight­ens your face. The With Love From Binky range with My 1st Years is avail­able from my1styears.com/binky
