Dani Dyer reveals parenting struggles admitting she broke down in tears as baby Santi refused to sleep

DANI Dyer has got candid about the highs and lows of motherhood revealing she was left in tears when her son Santiago refused to sleep.

The 25-year-old took to her Instagram Story yesterday to update her 3.4million followers on how her little one slept while on holiday in Spain.


During the Q&A, former Love Island winner Dani revealed that six-month-old son appeared to be going through a period of sleep regression after returning from her family break.

And it seemed the lack of slack sleep got to both Santi and Dani as she revealed they were both left in tears.

Answering a fan question, which read: "How's Santi doing for sleeping through? xx", Dani began: "He either really, really good, like 'I got this down to a tee. I know what I'm doing' or terrible.

"Last night he cried for an hour and I cried with him because I didn't know what to do."

Writing across the clip, the reality TV star added: "He is honestly either amazing! Or just terrible he was soooo unsettled last night.

"I'm hoping this isn't a new thing Santi is going to do to me."

In the following clip, the Essex beauty shared an adorable pic of Santi in a Versace outfit and added: "He sort of fell into his own routine on holiday!

"Plenty of naps in the day and his bed time was a little later… first couple of days he was a bit unsettled but then he was fine!

"But last night he was dreadful hopefully he falls back into his normal routine back home".

SUPPORTIVE FAMILY

Dani thanked her "supportive" family last night as she opened up about life as a single mum.

The reality TV star's ex Sammy Kimmence was recently jailed for 42 months for defrauding two OAPs to the tune of £34,000.

Taking to Instagram Dani spoke candidly about raising their seven-month-old baby son Santiago alone as she answered a fan who wanted to know how she has coped.

The fan asked: "Do you struggle on your own with a baby?"

And honest Dani replied: "I have such an amazing support system!

"Which I am so grateful for, they give me so much help when needed, and I think I need to realise I shouldn't be ashamed to ask for help!

"If I need a few hours off then I wont feel bad to ask anymore…"

She added: "Don't get me wrong it is hard but I am so lucky that I have got an amazing family who love Santi so much xx".

EX FACTOR

It comes as Dani dumped her jailbird beau after he was caged for three and a half years for conning OAPs out of tens of thousands – and her hardman dad is said to be “relieved” it’s over.

Dani previously stood by her man after he convinced her that his crimes were “not that serious”.

But she has since made the brave decision to go it alone as a single mum – and her family are fully supporting her.

"Dani's dad Danny and her whole family are relieved she's walked away," a source told OK!.

"They think this is for the best. They've told her she'll never be alone as a single mum as they'll always help her to raise Santiago."

Sammy sobbed and called himself "an awful human being" as a judged sentenced him last week.
