You just have to tell yourself that she is a happy, healthy child who is being cared for in the best of your ability, and that even if we make mistakes, they're not the end of the world - we may think they're so huge, but our kids don't even notice and won't remember. At the end of the day all that matters is that your child is loved and taken care of.
I think we all deal with those feelings of inadequacy, of feeling as though we're not good enough when it comes to being parents. I feel it all the time. I look at my child and feel so much love for him and feel like I'm not doing nearly as much as I could or should be doing for him, but then I realize how happy he is, how much he loves me, and I tell myself that its okay to work towards doing better where I know I can, but I have to know when I'm just being too hard on myself. I can't let these feelings negatively effect my relationship with my child in any way, you know?
