Dani Dyer is "scared" to wean her son because it is just "me and him".

The former 'Love Island' winner admitted she would "be more confident" if there were others around when she is introducing her six-month-old baby boy Santiago to solid foods.

Santi's dad is Dani's ex Sammy Kimmence, who was jailed earlier this month for three-and-a-half years after he was found guilty of cheating two pensioners out of more than £33,000.

Speaking in an Instagram video, Dani said: "So the weaning, it's going really well actually, however, I'm just a bit scared. I genuinely am scared, cause it's me and him.

"If I had people around me I would be more confident but because it's me and him, his life is in my hands - do you know?

"If he chokes, what if I don't know what I'm doing - I've done first aid - but what if I forget?"

The 24-year-old star is planning to stick to pureed food for now until her confidence increases.

She added: "I've just really been giving him jars, I've done the meals myself and froze them and stuff, but I think at the minute I'm just going to stick to puree and when my confidence gets better."

Turning to the youngster, she said: "You give mummy really bad anxiety, San. It's bad."

In March, Dani was worried she was suffering from postnatal depression after giving birth to her son in January.

She said at the time: "The other day I was really struggling, I had a couple of days where I made a shepherd's pie but I just felt so down.

"And I think when you've just had a baby you really start worrying, thinking, 'Am I suffering with a bit of postnatal depression?'

"I know this sounds weird but I made the shepherd's pie but it was like I wasn't making it.

"I had a couple of days of just really not feeling me and then I went on a walk and I felt back to myself. I felt so low."
