Lucy Mecklenburgh has revealed she’s “worried” about her son Roman as she took him to the doctor.

Lucy, 29, shared her concerns with fans as she posted a photo of her son snuggling on her chest in an image shared on her Instagram story.

Former The Only Way Is Essex star Lucy posted the photo of her baby son Roman, who will turn one next month, with a dummy in his mouth as he lay on his mother’s chest.

She then appealed to her 1.7million followers for advice as she wrote: “This morning Roman choked on a little piece of apple and he managed to clear it himself but spent 2 hours gagging, being sick & bringing up thick saliva.

“He’s just not himself I think it must be the acid irritating his throat & shock.

“He’s not eaten breakfast & lunch he put in his mouth, gagged & spat it all out.”

Lucy, who's fiancé Ryan Thomas recently said he misses spending time with her, then asked fans: “From anyone’s experience is this just fear? I’m worried he’s really hungry but to scared to eat.”

Mum-of-one Lucy then shared a box for her followers to input their answers and suggestions.


She added in another post with the same photo of herself and Roman, giving fans a further update.

She wrote: “We did go to the GP and he suggested a&e if he continued to refuse fluids but he has finally had a bottle of water & brest fed just won’t eat solids.”

Later on, Lucy revealed she had read comments from fans and sought advice from a nutritionist as she posted a clip of herself speaking to the camera.

Lucy, who recently shared an unseen snap of herself after giving birth to son Roman, told her fans: “I just wanted to say thank you for everyone’s advice. I’ve had some really good advice.

“It was just awful. I think, in my head, I thought choking was when they went completely silent and their airways were completely blocked and you got it out and that was OK. Whereas, Roman might have had a moment where he was silent, that I didn’t notice because I was making breakfast for everyone and I think it was almost like it was partially blocked or something.

“And he… it went on for two hours just him bringing up saliva and phlegm and being sick and then being fine and then started gagging again and bringing it up.

“It just seemed to go on for ages and I just expected that once the airways were sort of… you get it out and they’re fine and breathing fine and it was all OK but it just sort of escalated. Finally, after ages took some water and breast milk down so that made me worry less and I put him down for a nap and have been checking on him every 15 minutes. He’s been napping for ages I think he’s worn out, bless him.

“But, yeah it was scary and I am worried about how he’s gonna eat now because I put lunch in front of him and he had a bit and he just gagged and spat it out – he’s such an amazing eater so I’m just concerned he might be off his food and it might now go through another process in weaning that I didn’t think I would have to worry about because he’s always eaten everything and anything.

“So I am slightly worried but the main thing is he’s OK. I’m hoping when he gets back from his nap that he’s back to his old happy self and it’s always the way. We got to the doctors, he was sick on the way, he wasn’t himself and as soon as we walked in the doctor’s surgery he smiled at everyone,” she said as she laughed.

Lucy then continued: “It’s like they know! Or it’s the change of scenery that got him bit distracted from discomfort, I don't know but he’s OK.”
