Khloé Kardashian is understandably a little bit anxious about breast-feeding. And it doesn’t help that the pregnant 33-year-old has friends, family and social media followers in her ear sharing their own crazy experiences.
“Oh my gosh I’m nervous about breastfeeding,” she wrote in a Monday, March 26, Instagram post. “I hear crazy things but ill fight through it and love it.” Kardashian, who is expecting her first child. a girl, with her NBA star boyfriend Tristan Thompson, was replying to a user who told her to expect “major leakage” after baby arrives.
In the photo, Kardashian — clad in a push-up bra, underwear and robe — poses with the 27-year-old Cleveland Cavaliers player. Just weeks away from her due date, the reality star’s bump is on full display.
In January, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star tweeted that she “definitely” wants to nurse, writing, “I have tiny boobies so maybe that works in my favor LOL.”
If Khloe needs breast-feeding support, she can turn to her sister Kim Kardashian for some helpful hints. After the birth of her son Saint, now 2, she was big into nipple shields.
“I find the baby feeds better, and it allows me to never get irritated nipples or anything because they’re protected by the shield,” she revealed on her website in January 2016. “The hospital suggested shields to me, since at the beginning I found nursing super painful and difficult, so I took some home and never looked back.”
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends “exclusive breast-feeding for about 6 months, followed by continued breast-feeding as complementary foods are introduced, with continuation of breast-feeding for 1 year or longer as mutually desired by mother and infant.”
Meanwhile, Khloe is counting down the days until she can hold her little bundle of joy. “I can’t wait to meet my baby girl! I often think about what she’ll look like and what her little personality will be like,” the Good American denim designer wrote on her app on Monday, March 26. “She’ll be the perfect mix of me and Tristan — which is such a crazy thought, LOL. I want maybe [Tristan’s] IQ and my street smarts. We are both charming but [Tristan] is pretty cute!”
