After giving birth to her second daughter a few days ago, Jennica Garcia took to Instagram to share her experience as a mom with two children. 

The actress, who is a breastfeeding advocate, said she aspires to spread positivity online but admitted she doesn't want to make other moms feel bad because of what she posts on social media. 

"I keep my posts on a cheerful note because I want to spread a harmonious energy to those who follow me but I realized that maybe, my posts are making others feel bad about themselves. Since my second child was born, for 3 straight days I gave cereals for breakfast when she is used in eating whole meals that I've supposedly prepared the night before. Hindi ko na magawa. I don't shout at Mori and maintain a calm demeanor but last night I raised my voice. Mori naman, sana makinig ka! Then I cried. I apologized. She is also in transition. I am the adult I should have known," she began her post.  

She even told her followers that she was so tired that she dropped a glass jar she used to save her breast milk on her new born child.  

"If you swipe left you will see me holding a mason jar. I am catching the leaking milk. I was successful until I started doing it while in a side lying position. I fell asleep. Nalaglag yung mason jar sa mukha ng aking 4 days old baby. Thank God, she did not cry and that she is fine. For some reason parang wala siyang naramdaman because she was still breastfeeding as if nothing happend but I am sure natamaan siya." 

Lastly, she advised moms that it's alright to make mistakes and that they shouldn't compare themselves to social media mothers, whose lives seem to be always perfect. 

"Now why I am my sharing this kahit alam ko na may mambabatikos sakin. Kasi Inay, okay lang yun na nagkamali ka. Okay lang na minsan gusto mo ikaw naman. Pwede naman tayo magkamali. May Diyos, at buhay siya. Because of what He did, there will always be hope for us. To continue loving our husbands, even in those days when they are no longer lovable. By being able to demonstrate saintly patience in the household so that our family will see Christ in us. Wag mo kukumpara yung mga Nanay sa social media. Ganon talaga, gaya ko ang ipopost ko yung masasaya pero di ibig sabihin nun laging masaya. Ganon naman talaga ang buhay. Let's just hold on to eternity and God's promises para hindi tayo mawala ng landas. Bilib ako sa iyo Inay! Mabuhay ka!" Jennica said. 

Jennica is married to actor Alwyn Uytingo.
