The former Saturdays singer shared a sweet snap of the sleeping five-year-old as she pleaded for tips and tricks to help soothe his growing pains, after revealing she had exhausted all options.

"Does anyone else's kid get growing pains? Carter seems to get them quite often. Only at night. Doc said it's normal, they seem to be happening more and are more painful bless him," Frankie wrote. According to the NHS, growing pains are not actually caused by growing, and while they have no clear cause, they tend to be common in children who are active.
