Busy Philipps took her daughter Cricket grocery shopping at Gelson’s Market in Los Feliz, CA on Monday (Jan. 27).
The Cougar Town actress was dressed in a grey sweater and workout stretch tights and running shoes. She pushed a car with which the baby sat comfortably in with a special fabric enclosure.
During a recent chat with TIME, Philipps discussed the stresses of new motherhood—and why women should feel okay about hiring help, if they can afford it.
When her oldest daughter, Birdie, the working mom says she wasn’t really working, so she didn’t hire much help.
“I have to be honest,” she told. “I did it…more or less on my own, and it was really, really, really hard.”
With Cricket who was born in July she hired full-time help.
“I had to go back to work when she was, like, 6 weeks old,” she said. “In fact, this season on Cougar Town, people can look forward to me gradually losing my baby weight. It was nuts. But having those extra hands in the house helping really makes all the difference in the world, and I feel so fortunate that I’m able to have that.”
Cougar Town airs on TBS.
