Carrie Underwood gave birth to her first child, Isaiah Michael Fisher, in early March, and since then the singer hasn't been shy about sharing adorable photos of her little boy or letting fans in on how she's whipped herself back into shape. But now, Underwood is opening up about life as a mom like never before. The country crooner appears on the cover of the newest issue of People magazine and she talks mom guilt, breastfeeding, and much, much more.

"You feel guilty about every single thing, every decision you make, everything you do," the 32-year-old says in the cover story. Underwood also reveals that she's still breast feeding and plans to do so for "as long as I can take it," although she's not sure how much longer that will be. "It’s hard. My supply is pretty nil. We have to supplement with formula. I’m doing the best that I can, you know?"

But despite how much she's enjoying motherhood now, Underwood didn't always dream of a family. "I never dreamt of my wedding day and the perfect guy," she tells People. "Then I met Mike, and I was like, 'Wow, so now I know what I was missing.' And the same with my son. I was never like, 'I want kids so bad.' And now that I have Isaiah in my life, I'm like, 'What did I do before?'"
