Victoria Beckham says the experience was 'heaven'

Victoria Beckham made sure she gave her daughter Harper Seven the best start in life.

The 37-year-old fashion designer has revealed that she breastfed baby Harper after she was born last July – and loved their bonding experience.

‘Stopping work wasn’t an option for long, but I took as much time off as I could,’ says Victoria.

‘I spent the whole summer with my boobs out, breastfeeding.

‘I loved it. It was heaven. She’s such a good baby.’

Victoria – who is wife to LA Galaxy player David, 36, and mum to Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, 8, Cruz, 6, and Harper – says her daughter is far better behaved than her 3 sons were at the same age.

She found it difficult to cope when she gave birth to her first child Brooklyn back in 1999.

‘I love all my children exactly the same, of course, but the boys were hard work,’ Victoria tells The Guardian Weekend.

‘They had colic, they had acid reflux. They never slept.

Brooklyn screamed at the top of his lungs, every 20 minutes, 24 hours a day.’
