Meghan Trainor‘s son Riley will turn two this February, so after being a mom for almost two years, Meghan would like to share some motherly advice for all the mothers and mothers to be out there. The main piece of advice she’d like all to know is that she thinks new moms need to cut themselves some slack.

She spoke with Entertainment Tonight about some of the things she’s learned since she and her husband Daryl Sabara welcomed their son, Riley, last year. Meghan stressed new moms need to stop beating themselves up and “keep showing grace.” She also said “Just try to be easy on yourself…the mom guilt can eat you alive. And that almost happened to me.” As for how Meghan overcame the negativity, she said she “worked really hard on forgiveness.”

She also spoke about the success of her body-positive song “Made You Look,” which she said she wrote when she was struggling to love her postpartum body. The song has taken off on TikTok, and Meghan said the positive reception is “more than I can ever ask for.”

 

Mostly, she is happy the song is connecting with new moms, too, and now considers those fans part of the TikTok friends she thinks about whenever she’s writing songs.

She’s been thinking about her fans a lot, and Meghan is already back in the studio working on her next chapter. “We’ve been writing a few little tunes here and there,” she said of a future collaboration with JoJo Siwa. As for what the two have coming up, Meghan said, “We got bangers coming.”
