New mom Kylie sums up her first month as a mom
It's been a month since the former Encantadia actress welcomed her "Little Prince," son Alas Joaquin, with fiance Aljur Abrenica. Through Instagram stories and posts, Kylie shared her thoughts about her firsts as a mom. Labor and childbirth pain seem to be from the distant past now, and she says she has never felt "more tired" in her life. "Boobs are lopsided... eye bags darker than ever... hair is always messy, " and she's become "forgetful as ever." Kylie also said her piece about the pressure on new moms to swiftly get back to their pre-pregnant shape. "Society has its demands, but my baby loves me however much I weigh. He may even like me bigger; everything is softer and comfier," she wrote.
Breastfeeding is a challenge, too. "Alas and I have our own share of struggles with breastfeeding. We have had troubles with latching on both sides," she wrote, but they are "slowly learning and working through it, since I really want us to reap all the benefits of breastfeeding." She also gave a very apt message to new moms like her: "There is no sin in getting help. After all, it takes a village to raise a child."
The young mom continues, "You realize that motherhood is not just about carrying a baby or giving birth to one. It's a choice every day." She then paid tribute to her mom Liezl Sicangco and all other moms by writing, "Much respect to my mother, to all mothers. Keep your heads up. You got this! Learning never stops. I've become more emphatic to other people. Even towards me." (pep.ph)
