Emma Mcvey and Gary Beadle welcomed their baby boy into the world earlier this week, but already Emma's been attacked by trolls for her decision not to breastfeed her son.

Gary posted an adorable picture of him bottle feeding his new son to Instagram last night, but people were quick to post negative comments about the pic.

The comment section has now been turned off, but The Sun reports that people commented things like: "It's a well known fact breast milk is better for your baby and you won't find a study that says different."

Another added: "There is pressure to BF for a good reason: healthier baby, less hospital and Dr visits = less cost to NHS."

However, others were quick to jump to Emma's defence, with one writing: "Wish people wouldn’t be so judgemental about how parents choose to feed their babies. The main focus should be that baby is happy and healthy and being well looked after which little man clearly is."

Another added: "Last time they checked I’m pretty sure the baby was theirs not the thousands of followers they have on here. Nothing to nice to say? Then keep it shut."

This, sadly, isn't the first time Emma's been targeted to criticism. She was trolled throughout her pregnancy for what people believed to be her 'too-skinny' frame.

Gary announced the birth of their son earlier this week.

He posted two pictures of him holding the baby, alongside the words: “WOW what a feeling no words can describe it meet our son he is perfect in every way and healthy weighing 6lbs 2 @Emmamcvey is fine and did amazing... I am a dad can’t believe it... I cried I smiled I panicked but I will be there for him no matter what xxx”
