Kim Kardashian: “I Still Personally Wouldn’t Breastfeed at a Restaurant”


Kim recently welcomed a son, Saint, and has spoken on keeping breastfeeding a private experience. She explains that if she was in a restaurant, she wouldn’t breastfeed publicly, but she’s okay if she’s just around close people she knows. She explained that she has her own comfort level and people should just do what makes them feel good:

“I know some people find breastfeeding such a private, personal experience, while other people are very open and even breastfeed in public. Now that I’m a mom, I say whatever makes you comfortable goes. I still personally wouldn’t breastfeed at a restaurant with a bunch of people I didn’t know staring at me. 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. I would however breastfeed in front of my girlfriends. I think it’s such a natural experience and I’m not shy about that.”

Speaking on how her daughter North West is adapting to being a sister, Kim explains that she struggled at first but by including her, she is now happier because she feels like she’s a part of the process. She adds that breastfeeding does take quite a lot of time:

“I’m about two months into breastfeeding and I’m not gonna lie — it can be time-consuming. For some reason, 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! 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.”

The reality star says motherhood should be all about doing what feels right for you:

“I know so many people get backlash for posting breastfeeding pics, but I don’t mind them! 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.”
