"The Internet is a great resource but it's also you're worst enemy!" she explains. "We have gone down the Google rabbit hole before with my husband and I where we're like, 'Oh she certainly has X,Y or Z some horrible thing.’ You've got to use it sparingly!”

Although Philips says she doesn’t have any tips or tricks she’s learned from motherhood, she does think overanalyzing it all will “make [you] crazy.”

The mom recently took to Instagram to share her struggle with “feeling old.”
