Paloma Faith prays for her newborn daughter's speedy recovery as she reveals she's home after two-day hospital stay
PALOMA Faith has revealed her baby daughter is home from hospital after a two-day stay.
The singer, 39, said she is "praying for a speedy recovery" after her daughter was given medication for an infection.
She wrote on Instagram this evening: "Finally out of the hospital but she has to have IV meds every day for a week.
"Praying for a speedy recovery."
She also thanked the NHS staff for their care.
The star took her daughter to hospital on Friday and told fans it was "b****y sad" as she's so "small and sweet".
A picture showed Paloma laying down on a hospital bed, with the door to the corridor in the background.
She wrote: "Back in hospital with my new baby she has an infection of some kind and we have to stay in. Bloody sad she's so small and so sweet #godblessthenhs #ilovenhs"
Last month Paloma revealed that both her and her second daughter – who she shares with partner of eight years Leymon Lahcine – were both battling thrush.
Speaking about the "challenging" time, the singer said: "It’s been a month!
"Obviously nothing is straight forward. We both have thrush (my nipples, her mouth), have been on Daktarin gel for her and Daktacort for me, plus Fluconodzole 50mg tablet (daily for a week now) and probiotics – and it feels like it’s just getting worse! WHERE IS THE MIRACLE CURE PLEASE?!
"I’m not very patient so all this ‘try this try that’ with newborns is very challenging for me. I like instant solutions!"
She went on: "Bubs is doing well and started to open her eyes and really look now, which is wonderful. Reflux still in full force and trying to learn some upright feeding positions now that she is bigger.
"Don’t want to try the prescription meds, all the media about them is too scary.
"Had a day yesterday where all I wanted to do was cry.
"I’m starting to get twitchy about being able to exercise but have to wait for the 6 week sign off….. TWO TO GO!"
The mum-of-two recently opened up about her struggles to have a second child in a BBC 2 documentary.
The star had two failed IVF transfers and a miscarriage before having a second child.
In Paloma Faith: As I Am she also revealed she had suicidal thoughts after jet lag left her feeling “mentally unstable”.
She said that in her anguish she tried to “unbolt the window” of her hotel room.
The horror incident hit Paloma after she had flown 10,500 miles to Sydney for her shows in 2009.
She said: “I’ve had really bad experiences coming to Australia.
“The first time I ever experienced jet lag, I got a bit disoriented and mentally unstable and had to cancel the tour.
"I contemplated suicide.”
