Mommy shaming is definitely real. And Khloe Kardashian has found out just how real it is.
Recently the reality star and new mom has been met with an array of negative public opinion in response to her sharing that she needs to supplement breastfeeding with formula.
“Because I don’t produce enough milk, I also have to give a bottle with every feeding,” Kardashian wrote in a recent post 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. 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.”
Of course, many critics had negative things to say about the young mother’s choice of nourishment; however, one fan stood up for the star in support of her choices.
mad respect to @khloekardashian for opening up about supplementing with formula. i had to do that when i went back to work, and i was so embarrassed that i couldn’t produce enough because i was away from jackson. fed is best!
