Speaking to Closer magazine, Lauren said: ‘I have a new respect for my body and what it’s given me. I’m a new mum, I’m healing and my body has changed.
‘I think the trolls need to get a life. No one should be criticising a new mum on her appearance.
‘At one point I didn’t even shower for three days. My priority isn’t me anymore, it’s her [Larose], so that means I don’t have time to put in as much effort.’
The former TOWIE star also praised her boyfriend Charles, 24, gushing: ‘He has been amazing, especially for a young guy – changing nappies, getting up in the night. He’s even been feeding me my dinner.’

Elsewhere Lauren admitted that she’s ‘glad’ she had her first child at this point in her life, because she has ‘more life experience.’
The new mum also confessed that breastfeeding has been ‘harder and more painful’ than she’d thought it would be, but is persevering despite her nipples feeling like ‘razor blades.’
Lauren recently shared a sweet clip of herself breastfeeding Larose , with proud father Charles planting a kiss on the baby’s head.
Charles re-posted Lauren’s video on his own Instagram account, crediting Lauren as being ‘the most amazing mother’.
‘So proud of the way @laurengoodger is the most amazing mother to our little Larose. Our new family in a new home, I couldn’t be happier,’ he wrote.

Lauren recently shared more details about her homebirth, revealing her waters broke just 10 minutes after a reflexology session.
Answering fans’ questions in a Q&A session on Instagram, the new mum told how she used a birthing pool but ‘actually gave birth standing up’ and ‘got into the zone’ to deal with the pain of contractions.

Sharing details about her labour, Lauren revealed: ‘My waters broke 10 mins after this reflexology session with @lrussreflex. She is amazing and I highly recommend her!’
Reflexology is a type of massage that involves applying pressure to the feet or hands. It is used to try and aid relaxation and reduce anxiety, pain and nausea.
Lauren later told another fan that she went into labour ‘four days early’ and Larose was born ‘three days early’.
And when asked what Larose was like being born in water, Lauren explained: ‘I actually gave birth standing up… so the last part I pushed her out standing up.’
