- Rica Peralejo's motherhood journey with second child Manu had been challenging
- She revealed that Manu had undergone lip and tongue tie revision
- They had to help the baby adjust and recognize them all over again just like what happens in the beginning of a nursing journey for parents
Rica Peralejo shared an update of her motherhood and nursing journey to their Baby Manu who recently had to undergo lip and tongue tie revision.
Tongue-tie is a condition in which an unusually short, thick or tight band of tissue tethers the bottom of the tongue's tip to the floor of the mouth. Children who are tongue-tied or lip-tied have a lot of trouble nursing and eating, but the condition can be treated with a surgical cut.
With the challenges she faced, Rica was inspired upon seeing her son's smile, which she considers to be a source of inspiration for combating stress.
“Not easy tho. Especially when Mama is sleepless in Taguig [emojji], but we try, and we try, bleary-eyed, we try,” she said. “And then one day I notice him trust me and smile at me and find refuge in me all over again and that’s a win!” she wrote.
"That’s my dose of oxytocin, to combat the cortisol of rejection and overall stress,” Rica added.
Manu is Rica's second son with husband, Joseph Bonifacio.
Rica Peralejo is a Filipina actress, singer, and television host. She is a member of ABS-CBN's circle of homegrown talents collectively known as Star Magic.
