Tia Mowry-Hardict is getting real about breastfeeding.

Mowry-Hardrict, 42, revealed in the caption how her experience with Cairo’s big brother, Cree Taylor, now 9, was very different despite both her children being “challenging” to breastfeed.

“I just didn’t have enough milk and that was okay,” she wrote of Cree.

“However, with my daughter #cairo I was determined to try again and I’m so happy I did.”

The actress went on to share how she “researched, looked to the #breastfeeding community for guidance and had an incredible breastfeeding consultant,” which helped her be able to breastfeed Cairo for 13 months.

“Trust me, it was not easy. I had #mastitis in the first few months,” said Mowry-Hardrict. “Cairo also has a lip tie making it a little challenging. However, we did not give up!”

The mother of two concluded, “To all the #mothers who couldn’t breastfeed. Don’t beat yourself up. The most important thing is that your baby is feed, protected and loved. ???? #wegotthis”

Mowry-Hardrict, who has been social distancing with her family at their home in Los Angeles, recently confided with PEOPLE about how she’s keeping her family “optimistic” during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“My son, he’s 9, so he is aware of what is going on, but I try to protect him from the scary details because I don’t want him to have any built-in anxiety whatsoever,” she shared.

“But he does know what coronavirus is. He knows how serious it is. We have adjusted,” she added. “If you would have asked me the question maybe four months ago, I would have told you, ‘I’m pulling my hair out.'”
