Khloé Kardashian Gets Super Real About Mommy-Shaming After Breastfeeding Struggles
Since welcoming her baby girl, True Thompson, into the world back in April, Khloé Kardashian has been showered with plenty of love. As the first-time mama recently revealed, however, she, like sister Kylie Jenner, has had to deal with her share of mommy-shaming.
In a very candid post titled ‘My Lifesaver for Feeding True’.uploaded to her app, the reality star opened up about being forced to use formula after she experienced difficulties with breastfeeding. “Because I don’t produce enough milk, I also have to give a bottle with every feeding,” she told fans.
The 33-year-old took to Twitter, declaring, “Mommy shaming is real! But the truth is I’ve tried and tried and tried to breastfeed only and it wasn’t working for me. I feel fortunate that I am able to still breastfeed but with the help of formula. Breastfeeding is something I really wanted to do. Just am not fully able.”
Luckily, as the Good American designer revealed in her original post, she now has a little help in the Baby Brezza Formula Pro One-Step Bottle Maker ($180).
“With the formula I use, I have to give True the bottle within 30 minutes of making it, so it’s amazing to have this machine make it for me. It’s super easy to use — and fast, so when I’m exhausted and can’t even keep my eyes open in the middle of the night, it’s a total lifesaver.”
