Khloe Kardashian on why she's no longer breastfeeding daughter True Thompson: 'It wasn’t working for my body'
Khloe Kardashian has chosen to stop breastfeeding her almost 3-month-old daughter True Thompson and has 'tried every trick in the book'
Khloe Kardashian is no longer nursing her nearly 3-month-old baby daughter, True Thompson and the 'Keeping Up With The Kardashian' star shared all about her difficulties during breastfeeding in a social media post. 'The Revenge Body' host wrote on Twitter, "I had to stop breastfeeding. It was really hard for me to stop (emotionally) but it wasn’t working for my body. Sadly." Khloe shares a child with her partner, Tristan Thompson.
The 34-year-old also noted that she "tried every trick in the book" including chugging water and eating lactation cookies which are supposed to help in boosting breast milk supply and even took help from a lactation consultant.
Several netizens have come forward to praise Khloe's openness about breastfeeding difficulties.
One of Khloe's fans took to Twitter to resonate what Khloe was feeling and shared that she too had been through a similar experience and was relieved when she switched over to formula. Khloe responded, "I fought and fought to try and continue but then when I actually stopped, I didn’t realize what a relief it was for me not to stress and worry anymore. Any sec I had of downtime I was stressing to produce more for the next feeding."
She further added that unlike her sister Kourtney Kardashian who did not experience the same thing, her situation was "frustrating."
"It was soooooo easy for her to breastfeed. My experience was very different" [sic]. Khloe Kardashian is now part of a long line of celebrity mothers who have chosen to give up breastfeeding and resort to using the bottle.
Earlier this year, 'Southern Charm' star, Cameran Eubanks had revealed that she was retiring her "the boobs" after three months of breastfeeding her daughter Palmer. The 34-year-old took to Instagram and shared, "You see, I’m not quitting because my milk supply dried up or because I’m sick . . . I’m quitting because I’m just plain OVER IT. By Choice. I know I will get lectured and judged by this but it doesn’t bother me. I need some freedom back for my sanity and the bottle and formula will allow that. You are NOT a bad mother if you don’t like breastfeeding".
Recently the 'KUWTK' star slammed online trolls who insulted her baby daughter and said that True Thompson was "not cute at all." The reality TV star is no stranger to haters but could not help unleash her mommy instincts to protect her baby. She chose to label the cruel person as "disgusting," "pathetic," and "a loser." In a tweet, Khloe retorted, "What self-respecting adult would even comment on a child's appearance?"
"What type of disgusting human being are you? It's pathetic that you are this miserable in your life," she continued.
A fan backed Khloe and described the initial hater as "vile" as Khloe agreed. "She's a loser for that. No respect for people like that. People are entitled to their own opinions and feelings but why on Earth would you tweet that and if you must why would you tag me?" Khloe added.
Last month, Khloe experienced the same viciousness from another fan who questioned her for choosing to stay with her partner Tristan Thompson after videos emerged showing him cheating on her while she was pregnant. The Twitter user had the audacity to call Khloe a "hypocrite." The user whose Twitter monicker reads, 'Queen Persia,' tweeted: "I love, adore & root for @khloekardashian but I’m so disappointed she stayed with that wasteman Tristan. She preaches about women knowing their self-worth and when to walk away but when it’s time to walk the walk, she’s a hypocrite."
However, the 33-year-old reality TV star did not let that slide by her either and slammed the user saying, "Not exactly Queen Persia, you have no knowledge of what goes on in our household or the enormous rebuilding this takes to even coexist. I’m proud of my strength. I appreciate your opinion and I hope you hold that same opinion to everyone else who has stayed in situations."
Khloe Kardashian and her beau Tristan Thompson had their baby girl, days after an unfortunate cheating scandal which involved Tristan Thompson and multiple other women, surfaced. Reports stated that Khloe and Tristan were not getting along at all post the rumors but Khloe was quick to shut those down and wrote, "You make up anything!! I actually had a great night. It was a large birthday dinner for friends and as a new mom IM TIRED AF!! Being out past 10 pm is not where I’ll have the most energy these days."
The Cleveland Cavaliers player discussed his daughter at the Road Trippin podcast with Richard Jefferson and Allie Clifton and spoke about his son, Prince whom he had with his ex-girlfriend Jordan Craigs, and said, "Yeah, of course, Prince is getting big, jumping on a little trampoline. And baby True is eating, sleeping and, uh, s**ttin'. That's all they do. That's all they do. She has a full head of hair. She has green eyes. This is the first girl Thompson, female Thompson, so it’s huge."
"I think with a girl, you’re just so much more emotionally like… with a boy, it’s just like, ‘Hey man, you’ll be all right man. Stop crying. But [with True], it’s like, ‘True, it’s gonna be okay. You know, we’re right here. Daddy’s here to feed you. It’s me! Look, yeah!’ It’s way different, but it’s fun, though. It changes you," Tristan went on to add. The NBA star also revealed that he would like to have more children.
Recently, Khloe Kardashian commented on one of Kim Kardashian's Instagram posts and expressed a desire to follow in her sister's footsteps by having three children. Khloe commented saying, "So I don’t get what’s happening here. After three kids is there a secret rule that moms get hotter? You and Kourt are really making me think about the three kid rule."
Looks like True Thompson may get a sibling sooner than we think!
