Gretchen Rossi gave birth to her first child, daughter Skylar Gray, on July 10 and has been "raw and real" about some of the difficulties of her first month of motherhood, including frustrations with breastfeeding.
"Breastfeeding has been no where near this magical as I imagined in my head," she wrote in an Instagram post for World Breastfeeding Day. "I have cried so many times from being frustrated, from being beyond exhausted, from the pain and horrible sore nipples (as they literally scabbed over and or were bright pink from all the skin being rubbed off), from the guilt of feeling like 'I don’t want to do this anymore because it is uncomfortable, exhausting, painful, takes way to much time, and quite honestly was not anything like I imagined in my head.'"
But The Real Housewives of Orange County alum has also been sure to share the happier moments of new motherhood, including taking time to admire just how darn cute Skylar turned out.
"One of my favorite pics of my baby girl the day she born 6 weeks ago," she wrote in a sweet Instagram post showing an impossibly cute Skylar sticking out her tongue. "Time is flying by already."
Before we know it, Skylar will be walking, talking, and heading to Hollywood dining hotspots with mommy and her friends.
