She wrote: "I’m all for breastfeeding and having a choice how to feed your baby but WHY do people feel the need to post pictures of themselves doing it?!

"Especially the new pic of Robin Thicke’s gf! She’s got hair done, makeup on, both boobs out. So strange. What’s the need??"

The photo Chanelle was referring to was posted by 23-year-old April, who gave birth to baby Mia on 22 February.

But April was having none of it, and responded to the "hyprocritical" Chanelle on Instagram, reminding her that she was once a glamour model.

She wrote: "Hey @chanellehayes, maybe the next time you want to criticize me for posting a picture of myself breastfeeding you should really take a look at the pictures you've had taken.

"Not that taking nudes are wrong! The naked body is a beautiful thing! But don't be a hypocrite mama 😘."

April was met with hundreds of supportive messages for calling out Chanelle, who gave birth to her second son Frankie last year.

But Chanelle was not persuaded by April's message, and hit out at Twitter messages from people who had spotted the post.

One reply from Chanelle read: "It was purely for a photo op. She couldn’t give a damn about normalising it. I breastfed and expressed and bottle fed and didn’t document any of it glammed upto the nines lol."

She also wrote: "No I don’t hve an issue with it. I just see the point. We all feed our kids. I have breast and bottle fed in private and public just don’t feel the need to stage a photo and post it online.

"Modelling is completely different and irrelevant but both are 👌🏼."

Oh dear...
