Kim Kardashian


Kim Kardashian has joined the much-talked about debate over breastfeeding in public.

The mother-of-two took to her app to discuss her breastfeeding process and offered her thoughts on mothers who do it in public places.

"I know some people find breastfeeding such a private, personal experience, while other people are very open and even breastfeed in public," she wrote. "Now that I'm a mom, I say whatever makes you comfortable goes."

However, she admits she isn't the type of person who would feel comfortable breastfeeding little Saint West in public.

"I still personally wouldn't breastfeed at a restaurant with a bunch of people I didn't know staring at me," she continued. "I've seen this before and remember tweeting how shocked I was. Now that I'm a mom, I'm not that shocked, especially if you have a few kids and can't leave to breastfeed one kid in the bathroom while leaving the others at the table. But I still personally wouldn't do it, unless it was an emergency situation and I was fully covered."

She's fine feeding her little one in front of her close friends and family, though, and is totally cool with people who post breastfeeding photos on social media.  

"I would however breastfeed in front of my girlfriends," she said. "I think it's such a natural experience and I'm not shy about that. I know so many people get backlash for posting breastfeeding pics, but I don't mind them!"

She also made sure to note: "I know people have their opinions on how others should live their lives and I try not to be judgmental anymore—this is simply just my opinion."

As far as breastfeeding in general, Kim also opened up about feeling lucky that the process comes easy to her, revealing that she uses nipple shields to make nursing less painful.

She also dished a bit about how North West is handling her big sister duties when it comes to feeding her little brother.

"North hates when I feed the baby, and she lays on my lap so Saint can't be right in front of me to eat, LOL!" Kim wrote. "I've started to include her: Sometimes I will pump and have her feed him the bottle. That totally worked! She loved helping me, as opposed to my attention being off of her, and now she is my little helper."

Too cute!
