A post shared by Helen Skelton (@helenskelton)

Helen headed to the beach with a group of friends and family members

"I just have to say that because you are outside and now feeding your little baby, and I can hear her drinking, she is doing very well!"

Laughing, Helen remarked: "I am so sorry, you probably thought that was a calf drinking or something, well by the third one... The first one, I remember he would do a little thing like scuff his nose, and I would take him straight to A&E, by the third one, you're like 'Oh, they will be fine.'"
