Khloe Kardashian opens up about her struggles with breastfeeding and reveals she's using formula for baby True
The KUWTK star is over her initial days of motherly bliss and is now starting to face the struggles which come with the art of motherhood
Khloe Kardashian is over her initial days of motherly bliss, and now the 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star is starting to face the struggles which come with the art of motherhood. In her recent blog post, Khloe opened up about her struggles related to breastfeeding her daughter True.
For long now, fans have been speculating whether the reality star has been breastfeeding her daughter or using baby formula to feed the little one. But now, the Kardashian has revealed that she's actually using a combination of both, all thanks to some unexpected hiccups.
"Because I don’t produce enough milk, I also have to give a bottle with every feeding," Khloé explained on her app. "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."
Apart from the usual product promotions, Khloe put forward an important statement with her post, which clearly entails that even newborn babies can be fed using baby formula and it doesn't have to be considered a curse.
"Concerns about milk supply and whether the baby is growing enough has consistently emerged among the most common reasons mothers introduce supplemental bottles of infant formula or stop breastfeeding altogether," says lactation consultant Diana Cassar-Uhl.
The new mother is also facing issues when it comes to working out and getting her body in a perfect shape, and she took to Snapchat in order to document her struggles with respect to balancing times for feeding her daughter and keeping her fitness workouts in check.
“It’s also a struggle trying to fit in working out between feedings,” she said. “No two days are the same. True is so great, but still, I can’t predict if she’s gonna sleep for the full two hours or if she’s hungry.”
Khloe also shared that this is a big time for the mother and daughter, especially since its quite a poignant moment in her daughter's life. “Baby True is a month old today, so it’s a big day for the both of us. I’m going to be documenting me trying to get this body back, my mind, everything strong,” says the 'Revenge Body' host.
However, Khloe isn't the only mother who has opened up about breastfeeding and possible struggles that almost all breastfeeding mothers go through.
Previously, when Chrissy Teigen was nursing her daughter Luna, she too shared an interesting tidbit about what it was like for her.
“View from above. I really should have nursed out of both boobs (when I nursed),” she wrote in a Snapchat photo which clearly showed one of her breasts looking larger than the other.
