Khloe Kardashian is making headlines for doing what she does best — being relatable AF. The 33-year-old reality star is being praised by moms everywhere after opening up about her difficulties breastfeeding 2-month-old daughter True Thompson on her website.
She revealed that she has to supplement True’s breastfeeding with formula because her body can’t produce enough milk. “Because I don’t produce enough milk, I also have to give a bottle with every feeding,” Khloe wrote.
“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.”
Although the blog post was shamelessly promoting a baby formula mixing machine, her message to moms was not lost. “Mommy shaming is real!” she tweeted at a fan who thanked her for her honesty.
“But the truth is I’ve tried and tried and tried to breast feed only and it wasn’t working for me. I feel fortunate that I am able to still breast-feed but with the help of formula. Breast-feeding is something I really wanted to do. Just am not fully able,” she continued.
The post opened up a positive dialogue among moms about breastfeeding on Twitter, and by the amount of responses, Khloe’s situation seems actually very common.
