We can always count on Angelica Panganiban for pointers on the early stages of motherhood.
The actress took to social media to share what she has learned about being a mom after two months of caring for her first child Amila Sabine.
Some of her useful suggestions as a newbie mom were on coping with breastfeeding her newborn.
“Bago ka mag padede kapag 4 am na, mag sipilyo, hilamos at umihi ka na. You’ll never know kung papaya pa ba siyang magpababa sayo (ibulong mo na din kay Lord na sana makaligo ka sa araw na ito),” she joked.
Speaking from experience, Angelica advised her fellow moms to accept that breastfeeding would be their main priority.
She explained: “Pangatlo, hindi ka na makakapag damit. Tanggapin mo na, na naka bra ka na lang hanggat manawa siyang dumede sayo. Kasama na rin dito ang pag suklay ng buhok. What is hair brush na po tayo. Opo.”
Angelica also suggested that moms try to stay calm despite the different responsibilities they need to juggle.
“Subukang pakalmahin ang isip. I know madami tayong gustong gawin at ma accomplish. Pero, tanggapin mo nang, hindi ka naman talaga makakatayo sa kinauupuan mo. Kaya matuto kang matulog na nakaupo.
“Saludo ako sa lahat ng ina. Mabuhay tayong lahat,” she ended.
The 36-year-old welcomed her and her fiancé’s first child together back in September.
