Paloma Faith is praying for her baby daughter's speedy recovery after she was admitted into the hospital for an infection. 

The singer revealed her daughter's hospitalization Friday on social media.

"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," she wrote to her Instagram Stories, according to The Sun. 

On Sunday, Faith shared that her daughter had been released but would be taking medication for the infection for several days.

"Finally out of the hospital but she has to have IV meds every day for a week," she wrote in an Instagram story. "Praying for a speedy recovery."

Faith announced the birth of her second daughter, who she shares with partner Leymon Lahcine, in February on Instagram. The 39-year-old explained that she had given birth via a C-section.  

"I’m in a lot of pain and didn’t sleep last night but it’s worth it to see and meet the new little cherub I have in front of me," she captioned a photo of her newborn's feet. 

"I’m now going through the constant worry of bottle vs breast, last time I breast fed exclusively and I think it was too hard! I don’t know if I wana put myself through that this time..... but I’m Trying anyway," she added.

Last week, Faith wrote about her struggles with breastfeeding and choosing to bottle feed instead.

"I breastfed my first child for 7 months exclusively. Through mastitis and engorgement and tongue tie and reflux. This time I thought I don’t want to mentally go to that place again, so I thought I would give bottles of pumped milk at night and boobs in the day," she wrote. 

Faith explained that her baby had been diagnosed with tongue-tie, which is when the skin connecting the baby's tongue to the bottom of their mouth is shorter than usual, according to the NHS. Doctors were able to remove the tongue-tie, but her daughter was struggling to breastfeed. 

"Now it’s gone, but she still gets frustrated at my breasts. I started to see that she would do one suck and expect milk like she gets with the bottle. After three sucks she would scream as if to say, “it’s not coming out!” Then with her hunger she would cry and bang me," she wrote. 

"After a while she learnt to feed but this behavior would start after 15 mins, then 10, now 5 and I would pump milk and top her up with a bottle. Well, you can guess what predicament I find myself in. It very much feels like my baby has chosen bottle over boob herself. I cry a lot about it. I want the bond I felt with my first."
