Kim Kardashian has revealed that she’s struggling to breastfeed her son Saint. But it has nothing to do with milk flow or sore nipples – her daughter North is getting in the way!
“North hates when I feed the baby, and she lays on my lap so Saint can’t be right in front of me to eat, LOL!” Kim wrote on her app. “I’ve started to include her: sometimes I will pump and have her feed him the bottle. That totally worked! She loved helping me, as opposed to my attention being off of her, and now she is my little helper.”
While on the subject of breastfeeding – Kim decided to weigh in on the breastfeeding in public debate.
“I know some people find breastfeeding such a private, personal experience, while other people are very open and even breastfeed in public,” she wrote. “Now that I’m a mom, I say whatever makes you comfortable goes.”
“I still personally wouldn’t breastfeed at a restaurant with a bunch of people I didn’t know staring at me,” she added. “I’ve seen this before and remember tweeting how shocked I was.
Now that I’m a mom, I’m not that shocked, especially if you have a few kids and can’t leave to breastfeed one kid in the bathroom while leaving the others at the table. But I still personally wouldn’t do it, unless it was an emergency situation and I was fully covered.”
“I would however breastfeed in front of my girlfriends,” she said. “I think it’s such a natural experience and I’m not shy about that. I know so many people get backlash for posting breastfeeding pics, but I don’t mind them!”
“I know people have their opinions on how others should live their lives and I try not to be judgmental anymore – this is simply just my opinion.”
Well, we’re glad Kim’s got all that off her erm… chest! And of course, breastfeeding is all about the mother’s choice.
