Section: Celebrity Mums

The actress reveals that she can definitely spot the difference between her daughter and newborn son – especially when it comes to breastfeeding

When it comes to your second baby, you know what to expect when it comes to nappy changes and crying, but there are some things that can be very different.

When Halle Berry stopped by the Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about her newborn son, Maceo, she couldn’t help sharing her experiences of breastfeeding her son and daughter – and how they’ve differed.

‘There’s a difference between boys and girls,’ she told Ellen. ‘I’m nursing both…I breastfed Nahla and now I’m nursing my baby.

‘When I would put Nahla on the boob she would go [makes light sucking action] a nice little girly suck. With him it's like [makes chomping suck] he’s like sucking the life out of me! So I see the difference between boys and girls.’

To which Ellen joked: ‘That was TMI [too much information] in my opinion, but okay.’

Halle also talked about how her six-year-old daughter, Nahla, and how she’s taking to having a younger brother.

‘You know all she wants to do is change his clothes,’ she told Ellen. ‘He’s like one of her dollies that came to life.

‘She’ll purposely throw something on his shirt and say, “Oh mommy, he’s got to change his shirt. He has a mess on him!” She just likes to change his clothes, change his diapers…’

 A little person to help with nappy changes? We wouldn’t complain…
