Fed is best — just ask Khloe Kardashian The Revenge Body host revealed on Saturday, June 7, that she is no longer nursing her nearly 3-month-old daughter True. (And her breast pump is up for grabs too!)
“I had to stop breast feeding,” the 34-year-old tweeted. “It was really hard for me to stop (emotionally) but it wasn’t working for my body. Sadly.”
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, who shares True with boyfriend Tristan Thompson, noted that she “tried every trick in the book” including chugging water and eating lactation cookies that are supposed boost milk supply. Kardashian also enlisted the help of a lactation consultant.
A Twitter follower replied that she understood where Kardashian was coming from and admitted it was a huge relief when she switched over to formula. “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,” Kardashian responded. “Any sec I had of downtime I was stressing to produce more for the next feeding.”
The Good American denim cofounder admitted it was especially “frustrating” because her sister Kourtney Kardashian didn’t struggle. “For Kourt it was soooooo easy for her to breast feed,” Khloé shared. “My experience was very different.”
Khloé joins a club of celebrity mamas who have spoken out about their decision to bottle feed. In January, Southern Charm star Cameran Eubanks proudly declared she was retiring “the boobs” after three months of breast-feeding her daughter Palmer.
“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,” the Bravo personality, 34, wrote in an Instagram post. “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.”Go back into the Us Weekly archives and revisit some of the best bombshell stories, riveting feuds and couplings with our new podcast “#TBT!”
