Internet trolls have been going after Khloe Kardashian for not exclusively breastfeeding her new daughter, True, but the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star isn’t having it. The new mom recently took to Twitter to clap back at her critics.
“Mommy shaming is real! But the truth is I’ve tried and tried and tried to breastfeed only and it wasn’t working for me. I feel fortunate that I am able to breastfeed but with the help of formula,” tweeted Kardashian. “Breastfeeding is something I really wanted to do. Just am not fully able.”
Kardashian and her boyfriend, Cleveland Cavaliers star Tristan Thompson, welcomed their baby girl back in April, and before she gave birth, the 33-year-old revealed that breastfeeding made her nervous.
She said that she had heard crazy things about it, but she was going to “fight through it and love it.” Kardashian also said that she had “tiny boobies” so nursing would work in her favor.
The Revenge Body host has been quite candid with her fans about becoming a new mother, and last month she wrote on her blog that she is constantly learning while she adjusts to being a parent. Kardashian admitted that the thing that surprised her the most is that no matter how tired you may be, you can always find patience and energy for your child.
Kardashian explained that something just takes over, and she can find the energy for her precious, helpless baby that relies on her for everything.
The reality star is currently living in Cleveland with Thompson and her daughter, but her mom, Kris Jenner, said recently that things would soon change. Jenner revealed that Kardashian would be returning home to Los Angeles soon, but in the meantime, she and True are doing great, and Jenner is Face Timing with her daughter and granddaughter to keep in touch.
Just days before Kardashian gave birth, the news broke that Thompson had been cheating on her during her pregnancy. So far, she has decided to stay with her baby daddy, despite insiders claiming that she doesn’t know how she will rebuild trust.
Many people want Kardashian to dump Thompson, including her brother-in-law Kanye West, according to In Touch Weekly. An insider says that when Kardashian called West to wish him a happy birthday last week, he took the opportunity to beg her to dump the basketball player.
The source also says that West tried to be as nice as possible by telling Kardashian she was “too pretty and too smart” to be with a cheater.
West even rapped about Thompson’s cheating on his new album Ye. “All these thots on Christian Mingle, that’s what almost got Tristan single. If you don’t ball like him or Kobe, guarantee that b—h gon’ leave you.”
Khloe Kardashian has remained in Cleveland with Thompson and has not commented publicly on their relationship.
