Cardi B has joked her eyes are so ''dark and puffy'' and her skin is so pale she looks like she's got ''jaundice.''

The 'Be Careful' hitmaker gave birth to her daughter Kulture - whom she has with her husband Offset - last week but she has admitted she's still struggling to adapt to her new role as a mother because the sleepless nights are killing her.

Taking to her Instagram Story, the 25-year-old rapper uploaded a video of a puppet and said: ''I wish I could show you my face but a bitch look f***ed up in the game! Like, my hair's f***ed up. My eyes are so dark and puffy. Like, I'm wild pale like a bitch looking like she got jaundice. But I just really want to say thank you to everybody ... I'm just been so busy and so tired and in like a different world, a different dimension - I like it like that. It's doing so good...

''Now, let me get back to this mommy thing. Let me tell y'all something. No matter how many books y'all read, advice y'all get, y'all will never be ready for mommy mode.''

The 'Bodak Yellow' singer has had help from her parents and sister since bringing Kulture home from the hospital but she doesn't want to get a nanny until she goes back to work because she wants to spend time learning how to be a mom.

Speaking in another video, she said: ''So, I'm a very blessed person, I know you see all the blessings God has been giving me. but I've been blessed since birth, like since I came out of my mom's vagina because of my parents - like they are my biggest blessings and I'm so grateful for them.

''My mum has not left my side, this is her first grandchild for her, the last time she had a kid was 22 years ago, so this is all new to her, like it is for me... my sister has not left my side so she's been great and my dad has been running errands for me in New York.. I haven't got a nanny yet, I just want to learn how to be a mom and I want to enjoy every single second of it since I'm going back to work.''
