Sharing a sweet snap breastfeeding her new daughter Adelaide alongside partner Chris Walker, Carrie shared a brutally honest caption detailing some of the ups and downs of new motherhood.
Some of Carrie's 'downs' include: Googling 'what is reflux at 3am', surviving on four hours broken sleep, being diagnosed with mastitis, and eating meals with one hand.
But, the doting mum says these are enormously outweighed by the 'ups', with her "bursting with love and gratitude."
Carrie's post was flooded with supportive comments.
"This is so so accurate! Sums up everything I have felt with mine. Thanks for your honesty," one mother commented.
Another said, "Couldn't have said it better myself Carrie! That list sums up the newborn fog perfectly."
"Ohhhhh I here you," a third echoed. "Experienced all you described but as you know there's the light at the end of the tunnel."
Adelaide is Carrie's second child with partner Chris Walker, joining three-year-old daughter Evie.
Carrie is also mother to ten-year-old Oliver, who she had with late husband Greg Lange.
